WOOHOO! The new issue of Real Weddings Magazine has arrived!

We're so incredibly excited to announce the arrival of our newest issue, Real Weddings... Sacramento to the Sierra, Winter 2010! Our team worked really hard on this issue (we actually equate it to giving birth!) and we hope that you, our darling brides, will really like it and find inspiration in the pages of Real Weddings Magazine.

This issue features our cover model winner, Kimmi Armstrong!

In addition to Kimmi, this issue features our other stunning cover model finalists, real brides Kate Adams and Theresa Garcia (all three of these women will appear together on our Spring 2010 issue which will come out at the end of February 2010).

These young women allowed us to poke and prod them and get them all guzzied up for our photo shoot this past September at our photo shoot at Cosmo Cafe, Esquire Grill and Spataro. Gorgeous young women, talented hair and make-up teams, beautiful dresses from local area bridal boutiques, fabulous flowers, cool locations and, of course, the talented Jodi Yorston of Jodi Yorston Photography all came together on a perfect fall day! (We hope to have some more photos from the shoot loaded to our Web site in the next couple of weeks, so be sure to check back!)

Yes, it's true, we put real brides on the covers of our magazines! Each issue, hundreds of local area brides enter to be one of our three cover model finalists. Are you interested in entering? If so, click here to download our entry form. One word of advice, show us your personality on the answers to the questions -- we love working with brides who have a lot of spunk, personality, humor and who are just darned cool girls. Be sure that your answers really reflect who you are! Also, be sure to read all of the rules to make sure that you're eligible to enter.

Thanks so much to all of the vendors who participated in our cover model photo shoot:
