Ready for more gorgeous bouquets? Welcome to the fourth 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 Audrey Chaney with Botanica Floral & Event Design…they’re incredible! We’re smitten!
