When I was asked if I would like to share an exclusive sneak peek of the new Martha Stewart Weddings Fall Real Weddings Issue, I was thrilled. When I learned that the real wedding I’d be previewing was planned by Martha herself for her own niece, I almost fainted. It’s like the mothership calling me home. This lovely wedding was a very intimate affair, including just 11 guests. And in true Martha Stewart style, it was planned in just over two weeks. You won’t believe it when you see the stunning photos by Jose Villa.
The story of how Sophie and Dan met is such a sweet one. And I love how they choose to have an intimate wedding (they almost eloped before Martha asked if she could help), and what the bride says in the feature about why and how they executed their vision without making the loved ones who couldn’t attend feel excluded. Such an important piece of advice for those couples having really small weddings. Plus, this wedding is STUN-NING. Truly a must-see feature full of inspiration for every wedding, big or small.
You can see even more from this wedding in the gallery on Martha Stewart Weddings. Plus, the entire Fall Real Weddings Issue is on newsstands now and available for iPad.
