I'm stumped. Can't find this anywhere. Thanks!
here it is again, with another showing included too.
Reminds me of Lucian Bernhard's work.
Reminds me of Shelley Script but it is not.
Well, I've hunted almost everywhre I can think to look, and I couldn't do any better than to find two pretty similar fonts: Classic from Classic Fonts, and Copper, from the same foundry. The ascenders on Classic are most like the sample; the Initials of Copper are somewhat closer, although the Bernhard Script suggestion has better matching initials (but a non-connected script).
I would not be surprised if this was a custom font done by this foundry for the bridal magazine, because the weight and style is so similar, and unlike almost any other fonts I saw. I went through all MyFonts and Veer scripts, plus my own Script Guide.

Mike you are a typophile
Here's yet another sample. I've emailed the magazine and hope I get an answer. I appreciate the research you went through Mike; I had already done the same. I'm still looking for this; as I really want to use it for my own invite.
I just saw this same font (I think) in a Visa ad. Not that this helps. But it suggests that it isn't custom at least.
I was just incorporating some new Script Guide samples from Paul D. Hunt, and something looked very familiar. See OttumHmk from the Hallmark font set. This font's lower case and even its '?' match most of these letters (note the 'z' also). The 'b' , 'r' and 's' are different, but I noticed a strong resemblance between Ottum and Snell Roundhand. There's the same (or very similar) 'b' to this script.
So where does this leave us? The Hallmark artist (Rob Leuschke?) who did Ottum might be the one who designed this font for the bride magazine (and Visa ad Patty saw). Not to be too critical, but the number of aspects that seem 'borrowed' (Bernhard & Snell to name two), takes away from the originality, except that this combination is new.
