WEST TISBURY, Mass. (May 12, 2014) -- Set to publish in Spring 2014, EQL Destinations for Weddings is expected to fill a huge void in the wedding magazine category. Thanks in large part to an advanced social media outreach, EQL is already receiving applause from the LGBT community for the magazine’s efforts to address the specific event planning needs of newly betrothed Lesbian and Gay couples.

For those engaged Lesbian and Gay couples preparing for their big day, EQL Destinations for Weddings magazine will celebrate the joys of same-sex marriage through targeted editorial content once unique to the wedding genre -- up until now. From EQL Publishing, the soon-to-be launched, biannual print magazine -- positioned in the marketplace as a "true celebration of diversity -- will offer Lesbian and Gay couples inspiration, advice, and innovative wedding planning ideas. Each highly visual page brims with insider coverage of the world’s most enchanting and exclusive LGBT dream weddings. Along with fascinating content written by celebrated wedding experts and travel writers, the 144-page, full-color glossy will showcase exquisite photography that will serve to mesmerize readers. EQL Destinations for Weddings is destined to be "a keeper" and is one lavish publication headed straight for the coffee tables of the finest, most elegant homes.

EQL Destinations for Weddings -- a magazine whose time has come -- is expected to be the go-to resource for all things LGBT wedding. Select editorial will feature everything from delicious wedding cake ingredients, cocktail concoctions, and event-planning strategies to how-to choose the ideal orchestra, floral arrangement ideas and, of course, the most exclusive honeymoon hideaways.

With the legalization of same sex marriage in 14 U.S. States and the District of Columbia, it’s not a coincidence that EQL is perfectly suited to serve this growing market. At the forefront of this original concept stands long-time wedding and travel publisher, Leslie Hurd, who now adds EQL Destinations for Weddings to her impressive portfolio of publications. "This niche market was totally off the radar and not being addressed by other magazines, we felt that with our experience we could offer this audience a special magazine in tune with their particular wedding interests," says Hurd.

To help guarantee EQL’s resounding success, Hurd has wrangled some of the most well known names in the luxury event industry to be key members of the editorial team. Darren Olarsch, founder and president of On The Move Entertainment, New York, NY, an entertainment industry pioneer who creates entertaining experiences for private events. And Shawn Rabideau, founder and president of Shawn Rabideau Events & Design, New York, NY, a full-service event production, destination, floral design and lifestyle company. "Adding their expertise to the magazine ensures every EQL issue will be over the top with inspiration and creativity," says Hurd, "We are thrilled to have Darren and Shawn on our team and I know our readers will be as well."
