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?
May 23, 2015 at St. Clare Catholic Church with a reception at The Flower Farm. Relive Danielle’s fun wedding here.
Any children (fur or human)?
No children but we have become parents to a stray black kitty who has chosen to make our side-porch home.
What do you do for a living?
I now own my own event planning company, Danielle Rose Events. We specialize in corporate events and weddings.
Where are you living?
What do you do for fun?
Colin and I love escaping to Amador County to go wine tasting. All of the fun wineries and beautiful rolling hills are truly gem for our region.
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give yourself on your wedding day?
I would have reminded myself to really focus on the day with Colin and not be so absorbed in if everyone else was having a fun time. They were. It was awesome. So just relax already!
What’s your favorite part of marriage?
Getting to just be normal everyday is the best part of marriage. We love to cook dinner and relax!
Lastly, how was your Cover Model experience?
The cover model experience was just an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not only did I have the honor of being paired with Jackie and Katie, my co-models, butI also got to meet Lea Buehler from BGorgeous who I absolutely adore and was able to call on when my company planned and produced our very first client wedding!
