Our Beautiful Cover Model Finalist Amelia Ties the Knot

Since we launched Real Weddings Sacramento Magazine, we've been fortunate to meet so many amazing brides, and we're lucky enough to spend one crazy day each issue with three of them as they model for our magazine.

On the cover of our current issue, we feature three gorgeous brides: Emily, Autumn and Amelia.

Our beautiful Amelia recently married the man of her dreams, Tyson, in a breathtaking locale. She was kind enough to share some details of her special day and her photographer, Dev Khalsa Photography (
devkhalsaphotography.com) generously shared some of the stunning photos.

In her own words, here's more on Amelia's special day:

June 27, 2009 at 5 p.m.

Beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho

What was the most special thing about the day?
That I got to say I DO to my soul-mate! But if you're looking for another answer...I have to say that during our ceremony, on the blessing part, an unexpected wind that lasted for about 10 seconds left all of us with serious goose-bumps...yes, truly a magical moment. Seeing our parents interacting with each other, both families getting to know each other for first time (!) and having our closest friends with us for a couple of days were the most amazing things!

Anything funny or unexpected on the big day?
My now brother-in law, Todd, in the middle of the ceremony when they asked for the RING, he acted like he forgot it...or that it was lost (!!!)...and then said something like, "Well, I needed to lighten up the moment." Hahahahaa! Or, when I started crying, and my maid of honor, Claudia, couldn't find a tissue, and instead handed me a piece of paper she had in the middle of her boobs! Hahahahaha...hilarious! Everyone laughed a lot at both scenarios! Both moms speaking to each other in different languages and still understanding each other? Yes, probably counts also as one of the funniest things that day!

And on the serious side, seeing Tyson at the end of the aisle and how he started to cry when he saw me for first time as a Bride was truly priceless...and the happiest moment of my life I had enjoyed (yet!)! (He saw the magazine [the cover of Real Weddings Sacramento Magazine which Amelia graces!] the day after our wedding, and didn't looked my way when I was coming over the ceremony site, just right before I was getting closer, he turned my way.)

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Hawaii: Oahu & Kauai (l-o-v-e it!)

Congrats to Amelia and Tyson!

59 Strangers and a Proposal

I’ve heard of some crazy proposals, but never one that required the perfect cooperation of 59 strangers. 
Jake Bronstein made a new world record when he started a whisper chain that successfully passed through a room of 59 strangers and ended with his girlfriend Kristina Hodge. 
The exact message was, “Kristina, will you marry me?” 
Perhaps it was key that the whisper chain proposal took place at a World Record Appreciation Society event in New York. I have a feeling the result would not have been the same in a crowded bar. But all the same, still quite a feat. 
Watch the video to see the crowd’s reaction as they heard the message and Hodge’s shocked reaction at the end when she received the proposal on stage.
