We’re crazy excited to release our Winter/Spring 2014 issue this week, and so, it’s time to reveal our new cover model finalists and our cover model winner! Can we get a drumroll please?
Congratulations to Sacramento area real bride, Skye Holliday, for being chosen as our cover model winner! Skye graces the upcoming cover of our Winter 2014 issue.
On the Winter 2014 Cover (above): On Skye: dress from House of Fashion, earrings from Macy’s, headpiece by Emily Riggs Bridal, flowers by Bloomers Floral Design. For hair and makeup credits, along with additional photo shoot credits, please scroll to bottom of post.
As always, we picked three spectacular real brides from the hundreds who entered our cover model contest to serve as our fashion models for our shoot at the Crocker Art Museum this past September. We’re immensely honored that these gorgeous (and crazy nice!) young women let us poke and prod them, dress them up and make them up, and ultimately (hopefully) make them laugh at our all-day shoots. Skye, Anne and Karmen, our sincere thanks for being such great Real Weddings Magazine cover model contest finalists!
