Letter of Intention | V.2 Monarch

In our industry the bride-to-be is regarded as Queen. Each summer we work studiously by her side and come snowfall we are back to the drawing board, learning and innovating new ways to impress her. An integral part of our strategy as wedding professionals is to generate fresh ideas that inspire and captivate her through beautiful imagery. As Wisconsin’s first print publication to feature avant-garde bridal content free of traditional advertisements, Unadorned Magazine strives to be an essential resource for the inspired bride and the best platform for creative wedding professionals and entrepreneurs to artfully showcase their innovative ideas. This issue of U/M features four leading ladies, each exemplifying distinct personal style. These images are brought to you by a selection of the finest wedding professionals in Wisconsin.
