A Message from Associate Publisher Alexander Hafizi
Our Ultimate winners all shared one thing in common, and no, it’s not the SCV. It’s Instagram and their ability to inspire us with their feed. In honor of their inspiring accounts, we incorporated “the gram” in this feature. See page 14. This issue also features another gorgeous collection of all things wedding. Putting together this romantic issue was truly special as my partner Arnold and I got engaged over the holiday season. We are excited to start planning our wedding and can draw lots of inspiration from this issue of élite Wedding Magazine. From the Fab Finds to reasons why a wedding planner is important, we’ve got you covered. Are you ready for your bachelorette/bachelor party? Inside you will find a feature on not so traditional ideas for an amazing weekend. This is all information you won’t want to miss when planning your wedding, so I hope you enjoy flipping through these pages.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
As an Elite advertiser since the first issue, I continue to be satisfied with our advertising results. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Elite team. As a SCV resident, I look forward to every issue.
I wholeheartedly recommend Elite Magazine for an advertising source. We have had the pleasure of advertising in the Elite Magazine for the past nine years and watched our business grow because of it.

When i pick up and read elite Magazine I feel connected to the community which is one of the many reasons I have decided to advertise in elite Magazine. I am able to touch many different demographics. I love the format, how the ads and articles are presented. The topics are well written and easy to read. The staff are more than accommodating, helping me with everything from layout to color choice and logo presentation. They understand branding and how important it is. I have received many positive responses from my ads in the magazine and this is why I will continue to be a part of elite Magazine.

Good afternoon and thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
We had the pleasure of receiving our personal issues of the August/September 2016 Elite Magazine today in the mail and we are so excited. There has always been something special about Elite Magazine, and we can't believe that Cruise Planners is part of such an amazing issue. Kirsten's write-up, "Cruising Through Your Honeymoon," and your collaboration with her resulted in a perfect opportunity we are so glad we didn't miss. The supplement, the article, and the entire issue resonates and defines who we are as a company and what our business is built on, we call Cruisitude! We are so very pleased and look forward to future opportunities of advertising with your publication. Did we mention...we are also huge hockey fans!
Thank you, again!
