Letter from the Publishers W Cheers! Welcome to the Inaugural Edition of Metropolitan Wedding! With crystal clear vision and incredible passion, the initiative to create and publish a wedding resource magazine has truly been a labor of love! Full of ideas, information and inspiration, our dream is that Metropolitan Wedding will become any bride, groom, wedding participant or planner’s premier resource. Metropolitan Wedding features the talents and expertise of prestigious business and retail professionals set in remarkable venues found within Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. In “Wedding Style” Metropolitan Wedding went on location to shoot the latest bridal fashions at the distinguished and distinctive DeYor Performing Arts Center in Youngstown, Ohio. Our cover image graced by model Amanda Mesmer evolved from the photo-shoot. Also in-cluded in this fashion feature is the finest in men’s formal wear shot on location at the magnificent Buhl Mansion Guesthouse and Spa in Sharon, Pennsylvania. In “Metropolitan Weddings” readers can relish in the details and find inspiration when viewing other local weddings. Learn about trends in photography in “Behind the Lens” or see what’s new in floral.
