Even as I type it, I'm still having difficulty believing that this is really happening. And I can't wait celebrate with you all.
If you're reading this, that means that you received an invite to our issue launch party to celebrate our debut to retail shelves (or you did some serious sleuthing on loveincmag.com, in which case, please come because dang, that's a lot of effort). On October 25th, you'll be able to find Love Inc. in mainstream stores like Barnes & Noble, Target, Walmart, Publix, Walgreens and more across the U.S. and Canada. A feat definitely worthy of a celebration, and we're pulling out all the stops to celebrate the day after it hits shelves.
LOVE INC. ‘LOVE ON TOP' CELEBRATION DATE & TIME: October 26th, 7pm-10pm LOCATION: CHELSEA INDUSTRIAL, 535-549 W 28th St.
One of the perks of working in the wedding industry is knowing who all the good pros are, and so I tapped one of the best who also happens to be a dear friend — Brian Green of By Brian Green LLC — to help me plan a night that was worthy of the wedding industry elite. We quickly brought Marc Wilson of The Style Marc into our creative circle and from there, the “Love On Top” design ideas exploded. We found Chelsea Industrial, an exclusive Blace.com event space in New York City, to be the perfect backdrop to execute.
The scene is going to be beautiful and inspiring, and will bring the magazine to life through so many details. But we're also here to have a good time. I first and foremost wanted this to feel like a party instead of a lounge-y cocktail event and in order to make that happen, I insisted on working with The Elevens (seriously, Kerry and her band bring down the house, and they were my “must-have” pro). Bring comfortable shoes because I promise you, they're going to have you on the dance floor. We also have a surprise guest performance … and that's all I'm going to say on that matter. Shhh. 😉
A big thank you to our wine sponsor, RGNY (an incredible woman-, LGBTQ- and Mexican-owned vineyard on Long Island's North Fork, which we featured in our upcoming issue) and our signature cocktail sponsors Empress Gin, Pomp & Whimsy, and Fever-Tree.
