We were thrilled and honored when our friends at SPARKLE Bridal Couture told us that they’d like to replicate our “Once Upon a Forest” Decor Inspiration feature from our current Winter/Spring 2013 issue of Real Weddings Magazine in their April 2013 window display! We are so excited to see our photo shoot come to life in SPARKLE’s window and can’t wait to share it with you!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out our “Once Upon a Forest” blog series, you can catch up here.

And, if you haven’t seen this incredible window display in person, head on over to SPARKLE Bridal Couture in East Sacramento and check it out before the end of April.

If you can’t stop by, don’t fret…Beth Baugher from True Love Photo and our very own staff photographer, Dante Fontana, took some fabulous photos for us to “ooooh” and “ahhhh” over!

The “Once Upon a Forest” photo shoot Real Weddings Magazine team members who produced this editorial feature include: Aimee Carroll, Desiree Patterson, Wendy Sipple and Megan Wiskus.
