We’re just too excited to hold back the news any longer…so while the Summer/Fall 2012 issue of Real Weddings Magazine arrives at our offices this week, we just had to share the covers for our upcoming Summer 2012 and Fall 2012 issues right away!! So without further ado, we present our new cover model winner along with our gorgeous cover model finalists!
Congratulations to Sacramento area real bride, Lynn Holmes, for being chosen as our cover model winner!

On the Summer 2012 Cover (above): On Lynn: dress from The Bridal Box, headpiece by Granville Millinery, flowers by Accents by Sage. Hair and Make-up by Hello Glam. For full credits, please see bottom of post.

Lynn, along with her other real bride cover model finalists, Kristy Johnson and Kaboo Vang, were chosen from hundreds of entries in our cover model contest. We’re thrilled to have Lynn grace the cover of our Summer 2012 issue (above), and to have all three of these wonderful women grace the cover of our Fall 2012 issue (shown below)!

On the Fall 2012 Cover (above): On Kristy (left): dress from Dreamnette Bridal, flowers by Accents by Sage.  On Kaboo (middle): dress from Alma’s Bridal & Tuxedo Boutique, flowers by The Big Bang Event Design.  On Lynn (right): dress from Always Elegant Bridal & Tuxedo, flowers by Ambience Floral Design. For hair and make-up credits, along with additional credits, please scroll to bottom of post.

Back in March, 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 Greens Hotel in Sacramento. Featuring local gowns, local floral designers, local hair and make-up teams and the talented husband and wife photography duo, Geoff and Lisa Bardot from The Goodness, the shoot was just amazing!
We’ll share more photos from this shoot soon, we promise! But for now, we had to share these spectacular 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!)!
