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

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.

This past spring before lockdown, we were able to get one of our cover model shoots in the bag…we weren’t able to shoot our second cover model finalist photo shoots, so we’re working on scheduling that for your next next issue. ūüôā

In this cover model finalist shoot, our gorgeous brides‚ÄĒChristina and Natalie‚ÄĒworked their butts off for us, and the results are truly spectacular! In the coming weeks, you’ll get to see lots of the beautiful images from this shoot!

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

Ok, ok….yes, we cheated and picked TWO covers for this upcoming issue! That’s right both Christina AND Natalie get to be cover model winners! So without further ado, let’s check out their stunning covers!
