We’re so excited about the new issue of Real Weddings coming out this week, and with it, we crown new cover models!

Our cover model finalists Jannaé and Allison entered our cover model contest in January 2020…yeah, you read that right: January 2020. We had planned to do their cover model shoot in March 2020, and, well, we all know what happened then. So these beautiful brides waited patiently for more than a year for their photo shoot. But we think it was worth the wait! Jannaé and Allison worked their butts off for us, on a very hot day at Black Oak Mountain Vineyards, and the results are truly spectacular! In the coming weeks, you’ll get to see lots of the beautiful images from this shoot….you’ll just have to be patient!

If you’ve followed our blog at all, you know that picking covers for our magazines has to be one of the toughest jobs we have….each issue of Real Weddings, we host a cover model contest where beautiful brides vie to be featured on the cover of Real Weddings Magazine.

But the time has come to reveal our cover model winners! Can we get a drum roll please?
