Jen Stein

Founder, Editor in Chief: Destination I Do Magazine

Jennifer Stein is the Editor in Chief, Publisher and Co-Owner of Destination I Do Magazine and Destination Media, LLC.

After finding her calling in the world of publishing straight out of college, Jennifer diligently trained in every facet of the discipline – from circulation and editorial to marketing, production and design.

When she and her business partner, Carolyn Steere began Destination Media in 2004, it was with the intent to report on all things destination wedding, honeymoon and romance related. Jennifer had always wanted to have a destination wedding and when she began to plan her own, she noticed there was not a single magazine on the newsstand covering the subject.

Immediately, Destination I Do Magazine was born. Being an avid traveler and assistant wedding planner through college, Jennifer knew the ins and outs of planning a wedding, plus her own destination wedding led to the research and development for the magazine.

Since then, the magazine has grown from a small, glossy publication sold around the US to a sophisticated coffee-table worthy product found on newsstands throughout all 50 states and 14 countries around the world.

Connected to readers and industry experts on all fronts, Destination I Do can not only be found on newsstands but has a healthy social media network and online following.
With more than 17 years of business and publishing experience, Jennifer is now seeing her Phoenix-based international business thrive and grow, even having been recently awarded by Arizona Republic as one of the “Top 35 Entrepreneurs Under 35.” With a substantial client list, talented contributors and a growing amount of celebrity coverage– Destination I Do Magazine has become an icon in both the wedding and travel industries.
