Diann Valentine in Harper’s Bazaar

This year I was blessed with the opportunity to join forces with WeTV and Wedding Central as one of their wedding experts who traveled the country appearing at malls and offering brides-to-be wedding and entertaining tips. As my year starts to unwind, I just concluded my final stop on the tour in Atlanta. While counting my blessings and relishing in the great memories created with my new girlfriends around the country, I realized that yet another blessing lied ahead.

WeTV and Harper’s Bazaar partnered on a special profile in the October  2010 issue called “Destination Fabulous.”

This special section featured all of the fabulous wedding experts offering our best advice on destination weddings.  Ron Ben-Israel, Ceci Johnson, Mark Ingram and David Tutera joined me in this amazing feature.

However, my profile is a bit personal. Whereas I am customarily quite protective of my family and personal life, I decided to share a snapshot of me and my husband at our destination wedding at Castello Dal Pozzo on Lake Maggiore in Italy earlier this year. Essentially, I want women in love to know that I practice what I preach. A white wedding dress never resided in my color wheel of options but this Radiant Magenta—well let’s just say it made my heart skip a beat!

Express yourself,
