Real Weddings is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary and in honor of this milestone, we are checking back in with our beautiful cover models! We’ve been so lucky to work with over 60 local brides these past 10 years and we’re eager to see where they are now.

When did you get married?
In 2014 at St. Mary’s Parish in Sacramento
Any children (fur or human)?
Yes, both! Since our wedding we’ve adopted a new cat and dog. Then along came our baby girl, Anne, in October 2016 – almost exactly 2 years after the wedding.
What is your career?
Public Relations and Social Media Marketing at my company, Matryoshka Media Group.
Where are you living?
Since the wedding we were fortunate enough to buy a house in Sacramento! A lot of work, but also fun and rewarding.
If you still live in the Sacramento area, what do you enjoy doing locally?
We live near the river in the Arden area so we love taking our dog, Maxx, down for long walks when the weather is nice. He learned to swim in that river! We’re looking forward to bringing Anne along with us this spring and summer!
How was your cover model experience?
I still have the Real Weddings issues in my wedding keepsake box. Being chosen as a cover model was so awesome and something that I will always cherish! Such a fun day!!
