No matter how long I’ve been married, I feel a spark of excitement when I meet a soon-to-be bride. All the talk of flowers, centerpieces and dresses sends me daydreaming back to my own wedding 41 years ago.
A wedding is a chance for two people in love to express who they are as a couple. And the brides and grooms featured in this month’s issue did just that. From Ferris wheels to potluck dinners, the planning that went into these distinctive receptions is evident.

Speaking of planning, in the publishing industry, we’re always thinking months ahead for our editorial schedule. In honor of the upcoming fall season, we’re showcasing our local and regional arts and entertainment lineup in this issue. Our longing for cooler temperatures has us working on features that celebrate our great outdoors, not to mention our upcoming fairs and festivals. A hint? A cool new outdoor adventure is making its way to Ocala this fall. You’ll just have to stay tuned. It will be well worth the wait!
Till next time,
