Happy Sunday Real Weddings Readers! Take a little break from tonight’s Golden Globes, and let the oohing and aahing begin on some other pretty….the stunning bouquets by Accents By Sage from our recent cover model finalist photo shoot — the first installment of our “Beautiful Works of Art” Cover Model Contest feature blog series.

This past September, we shot our cover model finalist photo shoot at Crocker Art Museum — at this shoot, seven of our Real Weddings Magazine Partner floral designers created some amazingly gorgeous bouquets specifically for our shoot. Here, we feature the ones designed by the talented Cheryl Sage with Accents By Sage….oh yes, let the oogling begin!
