That’s right folks, the Winter/Spring 2012 issue of Real Weddings Magazine arrives at our offices this week, but we’re just too giddy about our new issue to hold it back any longer!! So without further ado, may we present our new cover model winner along with our gorgeous cover model finalists!
Congratulations to Sacramento area real bride, Jessica Nomicos, for being chosen as our cover model winner!

On the Spring 2012 Cover (above): On Jessica:  dress from Always Elegant Bridal & Tuxedo, headpieces by Emilliner, flowers by By the Gate. Hair by Jamey Amin and make-up by Caitlin Herrera For full credits, see bottom of post.

Jessica, along with her other real bride cover model finalists, Missy Espinoza and Crystal Goldberg, were chosen from hundreds of entries in our cover model contest. We’re thrilled to have her grace the cover of our Spring 2012 issue (above), and to have all three of these lovely ladies grace the cover of our Winter 2012 issue (shown below)!

On the Winter 2012 Cover (above): On Crystal (left): dress from Enchanted Bridal & Tuxedo Shoppe, headpiece by I Make Beautiful, veil by Flourish, flowers by Bella Bouquet.

Back in September, these young women got to play dress up all day long as our Real Weddings team poked and prodded these girls at an all day photo shoot at the picturesque Delta King in Old Sacramento. Featuring local gowns, local floral designers, local hair and make-up teams and the uber-talented Thais Fleury Scheideman from Love at First Click Photography.
We’ll share more photos from this shoot soon, we promise! But for now, we had to share these gorgeous covers with you!
Thank you to all the vendors who contributed to our cover model contest shoot — you’ll see the full layout in the magazine this week (and we’ll post it to our blog later this week, so stay tuned!)!
