We’re crazy excited to release our Summer/Fall 2015 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, Robyn Soliman-Guest, for being chosen as our cover model winner! Robyn graces the upcoming Summer cover of our Summer/Fall 2015 issue which arrives this week!

As always, we picked three amazing real brides from the hundreds who entered our cover model contest to serve as our fashion models for our shoot at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento this past March. We are honored to have Bobbye Jo, Robyn and Lindsey as this issue’s three cover model finalists! These super fun, gorgeous and just really cool young women let us poke and prod them, dress them up and make them up at our all-day shoot. Bobbye Jo, Robyn and Lindsey, our sincere thanks for being such great Real Weddings Magazine cover model contest finalists!

In the coming weeks, you’ll get to meet each one of our cover model finalists individually, see all of the dazzling dresses, the amazing locale, the gorgeous bouquets, the fabulous hair and makeup, and all of the wonderful accessories all caught by Dee & Kris Photography, in our upcoming blog post series, “City Girls.” So stay tuned!
But wait…there’s more! We’re thrilled to release a sneak peek of our Fall 2015 cover — which features all three of our cover model finalists: Bobbye Jo, Robyn and Lindsey!
