Letter From the Editor

I’ve never been one to gush, but the exquisite estates we’ve chosen as this year’s Prestigious Properties are among the most stunning in our region. In this issue, we offer a glimpse at a selection of opulent homes that feature impeccable design, sublime amenities and distinctive details that tell a story about the past and allude to the future…the future owners, that is. Each residence is – at least as of press time – on the market and available for purchase.

This edition of The Voice also serves as our Wedding Issue, so we’ve dedicated plenty of pages to matrimony. Our 14-page fashion editorial was styled by Liz Bingham and photographed by Andrea Hutchinson at the Pendennis Club, which has hosted hundreds of weddings over the decades. The historic venue was the perfect backdrop for our bride’s (staged) big day. In an effort to provide inspiration for anyone who is planning to walk down the aisle, Managing Editor Mariah Kline penned a witty breakdown of this year’s top gown trends. And newlyweds Emily Nicklies and Mary Jane McInnis, who married in late 2018 at the Brown Hotel, allowed us to share their super-sweet story of how they fell in love.

In this issue, Let Me Tell You columnist Janice Carter Levitch takes us on another adventure, photographer John Harralson shares some of his favorite photographs from the past month and the Speed Art Museum’s Miranda Lash opens the door to Ebony G. Patterson’s exhibition, which is a must-enjoy.

As always, thank you for picking up The Voice and don’t forget to check out voice-tribune.com for even more photos and fresh content.
