We’re so excited about the new issue of Real Weddings coming out this week, and with it, we crown new real bride cover models…and, (WAIT FOR IT) in a first…cover model grooms (with their cover model brides!)!
So we tried something different this time…we did five styled shoots featuring real brides and real grooms (aka real couples) as our models; and from these shoots we would pick the cover. Yeah, we mocked up more than 200 potential covers from these shoots.
And, if you’ve followed our blog at all, you know that picking the final covers for our magazines has to be one of the toughest jobs we have. Throw some grooms in there, and stick a fork in us because we were done. It. Was. So. Hard.
But the time has come to reveal our cover model winners! Can we get a drum roll please?
