Blush Magazine Spring Summer 2016Spring Summer 2016 Wedding Inspiration

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 6, 2016

2015 was a big year for Blush Magazine. We threw a pretty fabulous unveil party, published two unique issues and featured more real weddings than any other year. 2016 has already proven to be bigger and better than the last. We have so many cool additions coming to the website (rolling out any day now) and we are so excited to release the cover of our SS2016 issue right here! Typically we distribute copies the same day but this year we went to print earlier so your first chance at a hard copy will be at the Edmonton Bridal Expo on Sunday, January 10th. That’s only 4 days away so don’t forget to purchase your tickets. Should you have no reason to be at a bridal show you can always order a copy online.

Our SS2016 cover comes to us from a collaboration of Edmonton and Calgary wedding vendors which was shot at the magnificent Fairmont Banff Springs. Cory Christopher, the mastermind behind this all, curated a spectacular team (links below) to help bring his vision to fruition.

This is the first issue where we feature more than one editorial, we couldn’t narrow it down so this season you’ll have THREE to feast your eyes on!

We look forward to meeting many of you at the upcoming bridal shows and we hope you enjoy this issue while planning your special celebration.
