alabamaweddingsmagazine.com 8 A W Photography: Nick Frontiero Hair & Makeup: Meslissa Moore Borgardus publisher, michelle van every Every year is an accomplishment, but this year is extra special to me. After sixteen years, the magazine has taken on different themes, styles and focus. This year, it has been my passion and desire to go back to our roots and focus on what makes us who we are: southern, classic, feminine. I am proud of who we are and what we represent. We may talk soft and sweet but there is tremendous pride in knowing we truly have the best talent, style, and determination of execution, which does not compare to anywhere except here, in the South, in Alabama. It is my joy and pleasure to show-off how amazing our Alabama weddings really are! I am so excited to share close to 100 editorial pages from photo shoots taken this year and 40 real weddings. I am very proud of this issue. Going to press is always exciting. Seeing the pages of the magazine come to life is such a tremendous thrill. As my eyes take in each page, I see the faces of everyone who has given their time, their talents and their commitment to make it all happen. I dedicate these pages to the entire Alabama Weddings Magazine team – advertisers, AWM staff and the wonderful support from my family and friends. Thank You!!! Best Wishes, Michelle style editor, christopher confero The verse goes, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." No matter your faith, the verse applies to all aspects of our lives. I'm thankful for family and friends who have instilled in me core values and a determination to do better every day. As I've grown older and pushed myself to learn, grow and experience new things – I always come back to my center and remember that I desire kindness and courage to be my driving characteristics. All of these words translate from our personal lives to our professional ones as well. I hope to treat every client and colleague just as I would want to be, but also holding them to the same level of expectations I give myself. As I move into my 9th year with Alabama Weddings, I want every year to be better than the one before. Whether sleek and sexy or soft and feminine – I work to create pages that showcase the talent we have in our great state. As you read through our 2017 issue, you'll find more of a Southern flair than in recent years past. We are getting back to our roots in showcasing what you, the readers, wish to realize on your wedding day. Be inspired, Christopher
