Last night I got to attend a party to celebrate the launch of Grace Ormonde’s new book: “Being in Love Never Goes Out of Style.” Grace needs no introduction – she is the premiere publication leader in the wedding industry. Her publication – Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine is widely circulated across the nation and is the elite magazine for the wedding industry. I took this excerpt from their about us page:
Grace Ormonde has built an enviable reputation in the wedding industry for creating the platforms for wedding specialists to showcase their products and services while offering prospective brides and grooms a multitude of choices, ideas and alternatives for planning their wedding. She has consistently made creativity and innovation hallmarks of her enterprises.
Grace Ormonde Wedding Style magazine was first published as a regional New England wedding planning resource in 1998. After five regional issues, Wedding Style launched nationally in 2003.
The national launch of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style created the demand for a regional New England replacement that resulted in the creation and launch of the sister publication Grace Ormonde Marriage in 2003 later renamed to Wedding Style New England in 2007.
Grace Ormonde Wedding Style and Wedding Style New England are designed to assist prospective brides with choosing wedding services and offer informative, practical editorial content on topics ranging from wedding planning to home decorating and women’s health issues
To share a personal story, when I got into this industry 4 years ago, I went to a local bookstore to do some “research” to learn what it takes to be a wedding photographer. I perused through countless amount of wedding magazines on the rack but Grace’s Wedding Style magazine stood out above the rest. So I picked it up and was blown away by the imagery and the quality of the magazine. I set the bar since then and made it my personal goal to get a wedding featured on here one of these days. So getting to meet her last night in person was such an honor. I met her briefly at WPPI but did not get a chance to talk to her much. Her and her husband Yanni are one of the most down to earth people I’ve encountered.
Here are just a few images from the event. For more photos, please visit my facebook page:
It was an honor to share this moment with Grace. We got to hold each other’s book and snap this photo together. Thank you so much for the opportunity Grace! It was great having you and Yanni visit Chicago.
