Minnesota Bride Spring/Summer 2023

This year we celebrate Minnesota Bride’s 30th anniversary. WOW! I am so proud to be the new owner of this beautiful publication and feel honored to continue this brand’s legacy. 

We could never have gotten to this milestone without the amazing, talented and dedicated team we have had over the years. I may not have had the honor to meet everyone who has contributed, built and maintained this fabulous publication, but I want you all to know that I greatly appreciate you, and your years of service are invaluable. The team that is on board thanks you all as well. 

Thank you, Iron Diamond team, also known as Team Bride! You all bring so much talent, value and class to this brand and this publication. I’m very excited to continue to see us grow and go to the next level—for our readers, our followers, and the Minnesota wedding community. 

Also, thank you to the wonderful wedding and fashion community we have here. Your talents truly make the magazine a page-turner for our readers and followers. Without your stunning real weddings, fashion shoots, styled shoots and editorial expertise, we really wouldn’t have a publication. So, thank you for sharing your talents, your vision and your inspiration, as well as the hot new trends and the wedding day love stories you witness regularly. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing wedding dreams become a reality with the help of our talented clients. The added bonus is that we get to share it with our readers and followers. 

Finally, thank you to our readers and followers for supporting and loving this fabulous magazine and bringing us along on your wedding planning journey. 

Cheers to you all, and especially to 30 years of publishing incredible Minnesota wedding stories!
