Inaugural cover challenge awarded to celebrity florist Mark Held and nationally-renowned photographer, Elizabeth MessinaATLANTA, July 28, 2009 – Get Married Media, an integrated tri-media wedding planning resource with national platforms online, on television and in print, reveals the details of the cover of Get Married magazine’s inaugural issue available October 2009. As part of its fresh approach to planning a wedding, each issue of Get Married magazine will present an unconventional and distinctive cover including a design challenge by a leading wedding professional.

The first issue, complimentary on http://www.GetMarried.com/magazine, showcases a tablescape designed by famed celebrity florist, Mark Held of Mark’s Garden in Los Angeles, and shot by wedding and celebrity photographer, Elizabeth Messina. Get Married provided Held with a complete table setting, as well as several boxes of décor elements to inspire brides as they shop for their wedding reception. The décor arrived on Held’s home doorstep and he had one week to create an impressive tablescape for eight people.

“The pages of Get Married magazine will translate the latest wedding trends, and the cover challenges top industry professionals to transform the latest colors, products and styles into an incredibly inspiring design – one that brides could recreate,” says said Stacie Francombe, founder and president of Get Married Media. “As a focal point of the wedding reception, the tablescape reflects a bride’s personal style and sets the mood for the party.”

Held, who created stunning designs for the nuptials of Fergie and Josh Duhamel, Heidi Klum and Seal, and Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, had the challenge of creating a gorgeous reception table. In an accompanying feature article in Get Married magazine, Held will share his insider design secrets and explain to brides how to recreate the table. “It’s an honor to be the first designer for Get Married magazine’s inaugural cover challenge. I’m excited to share the results with brides that combine my signature style with a stunning selection of bright and bold décor elements,” said Mark Held, celebrity florist.

Celebrity photographer Messina’s innate sense of style is reflected in the cover shot, capturing the vivid colors and detail of the product collection. With clients including Brooke Shields, Tori Spelling, Kevin Garnett and Wes Craven, Messina’s images have graced the pages of Town & Country, OK Magazine and People. "I am deeply honored to be the photographer for the first cover of Get Married magazine. It was truly a pleasure to capture Mark Held's stunning florals and beautiful design elements,” said Elizabeth Messina, celebrity wedding photographer. “We had a lovely day that will provide stunning visual inspiration to countless brides."

Get Married will offer behind-the scenes footage of Held and Messina as they create Get Married magazine’s first design challenge cover. Video footage and photographs will be available on GetMarried.com in October when the magazine launches.In addition to offering the first issue of Get Married magazine for free, one lucky bride will win some of the products displayed on the cover tablescape as well as the 8-piece Lenox Ivory Frost dinnerware set showcased in the cover.
