From the Editor

S

imply Elegant Platinum Weddings finally takes off and the first issue has hit the newsstands, I am thrilled about the outcome. I hope that you have enjoyed the unique approach we have taken to launch our brand. Let me give you some insight into why there is a need for Platinum Weddings Magazine to be as unique of an experience as possible. Already having established the style of the magazine within the fashion community as a force to be reckoned with, Platinum Weddings has set out to conquer an entirely new (but not altogether unrelated) realm---- the world of fashion. However, it appears that I have approached my first publication with the same fashion forward sensibilities as I do my event and linen designs. The artists with whom I have had the privilege to work with on the magazine are incredibly inspirational in my life, with my ambition to just share their art and vision with the world. A picture can say a thousand words, and with a large amount of unique shoots of my visions, I give the discerning viewer insight to a beautiful story from start to finish. As a self-taught artist who grew up in Boston, I was heavily influenced by luxury and fashion - two elements which are ever-present in the magazine. As we all know luxury is equal part style as well as fantasy. In the issues to come we will continue to bring you innovative ideas, inspirational visions and elaborate resources in planning your Platinum Wedding. All my inspiration,

Gina Karlsson
