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.
Heidi (middle) graced our Winter/Spring 2013 cover shot at Preston Castle by Kris Holland Photography.
When did you get married? July 21, 2012
Any children (fur or human)? We welcomed baby boy Maverick into our lives on October 16, 2014 and he is the biggest joy! He is so full of personality and he makes us happier than we could have ever imagined. Everyday as a family is full of love and adventure!
What is your career? I work from home as an online High School teacher and take care of Maverick and our home.
Where are you living? We live in Cool, where we love to spend time running, biking, kayaking, and spending time with our friends and family.
If you still live in the Sacramento area, what do you enjoy doing locally? My husband mountain bikes and Mav is his biggest fan; he loves to watch Daddy race! I am an avid distance runner and ran my first 100k in April. Maverick is my best running partner and we have logged many miles together in the jogging stroller. As a family we love to go kayaking, play at the park and visit the zoo!
How was your Cover Model experience? The cover model shoot was so fun and I will always have great memories of that day. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
