destinationwed_1200web

Brenda was interviewed by Destination Weddings Magazine as an authority on weddings in Italy. She was asked for an important tip for those contemplating a destination wedding. Her reply emphasised that when having a destination wedding where your guests are traveling a long way and sometimes at great expense it is important to take them somewhere that offers an experience that they cannot get at home. They should be rewarded for the sacrifices they have made to share in your wedding celebration.

Interview in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine

Martha_Stewart1200_web It is always an honor to be interviewed by Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine. My association with them goes back to their beginnings when I had just started working for Vera Wang in New York and both Vera Wang and Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine were new to the wedding business. How funny that sounds now that they are both titans and the two biggest names in the entire wedding industry. Martha Stewart herself would come into the store on Madison Avenue occasionally to meet with Vera or in regard to a segment for her magazine or television show.

Interview in the Italian News Magazine Internazionale

Internazionale Italia Celebrations
I was interviewed for the Italian weekly magazine Internazionale. They do a weekly feature on someone with an interesting story to tell and this week that was me. The Internazionale (International) refers to the concept of the magazine which is to compile top news stories of the past week that appeared in top news sources from around the world. For example from the New York Times, Le Monde from Paris, Suddeutsche Zeitung in Germany, etc. So not only do you get a run down of current events, you get it filtered through a different point of view than that which is typical within your own culture. It truly is international in every respect and it was fun to have been a part of it.
