I'm always surprised at how many local brides and wedding pros surface when I run a Bay Area related post. The fashion/wedding world here in San Francisco is buzzing about Mocha Bride and Bride Nine magazines, two very novel concepts of Bay Bella Publishing. Mocha Bride's cover always features a bride of color as seen in the premiere summer 2009 issue pictured at the right. Bride Nine features a bride who represents one of the unique nine counties in the Bay Area. The fall issues are out and can be purchased on the website http://www.mochab.com/ or at a local Bay Area bookstore. A quick peek at editorials and I was awestruck by the inspiration factor and highly recommend both mags whether you live in the Bay Area or not . . .
