Share the Love

You can spend weeks, months, even years planning your wedding day. Whether it’s the event of the year or an intimate elopement, there’s no doubt that you spent a lot of time and energy into making the day everything you dreamt that it would be down to the tiniest perfectly executed detail. And then POOF! It’s over in a blink of an eye. But with the help of the photographers – both professional and unprofessional – you can relive every minute of the day and share those precious memories not only with your family and friends, but you can now also share the love of your wedding with all the newly engaged who are just sitting down and starting to plan their special day. Well Wed recently launched their Maine and New Hampshire magazine which is chock full of real weddings submitted by newlyweds. From vintage chic or winter wonderland, Well Wed is the perfect place to launch planning your ME/NH wedding. And wouldn’t you, as the glowing newlywed who just experienced the joy of getting married,  love knowing that all of the hard work you put into your wedding day inspired another new bride and groom?

Here are the details:

Reach out to one of the vendors who advertises in Well Wed magazine (Sperry Tents Seacoast is one of them!) and they can outline what they need and by when. There is a questionnaire that needs to be completed to make sure all of the right vendors are credited and that your wedding day story is accurately captured and shared with Well Wed readers. The vendor will then confirm that it is ok with the photographer to submit a few high res images that capture the “cohesive look or theme, eye-catching details and inspired seasonal elements,” of your wedding day. And that’s it! Then you get to wait until that adorable magazine shows up on your doorstep and then you get to relive your wedding day along with the hundreds of other people who turn to Well Wed for wedding advice.
