That’s right folks, the Summer/Fall 2011 issue of Real Weddings Magazine arrives at our offices tomorrow, but we’re just too excited to keep a lid on the news any longer!
Congratulations to Sacramento area real bride, Lindsay Soldati, for being chosen as our cover model winner!

Back in March, we poked and protted these girls at an all day photo shoot at the exquisite Arden Hills Resort Club & Spa. Featuring local gowns, local floral designers, local hair and make-up teams and the incomparable Jackie Willard from Jacqueline Photography, our cover model photo shoot truly was simply spectacular!
We’ll share more photos from this shoot soon, we promise! But for now, we had to share these gorgeous covers with you!
