Sacramento Wedding Inspiration: The Future Has Arrived {Get to Know: Lynsey Gillard}

Did you know that in all of the photo shoot features that we do, we use real brides (and grooms, too!) as our models? It’s true! We love that these real brides are going through their wedding planning journey, just like you!

Now you get to learn a little bit more about our beautiful bride, Lynsey Gillard! Lynsey rocked our “The Future Has Arrived” photo shoot from the Summer/Fall 2014 issue! Isn’t she gorgeous?

Thank you for being such a great Real Weddings real bride model, Lynsey! Take it away:

Real Weddings: What made you want to model for this shoot?

Lynsey Gillard: I initially submitted my application for the cover model contest and made the final 10 but was not chosen. A few weeks later Wendy contacted me about modeling in this editorial photo shoot, and I was beyond excited! I absolutely loved my wedding—wearing the pretty dress and having my hair and makeup done—and modeling for a bridal magazine was kind of like getting to do it all over again! I’m the girl who has always loved looking at bridal magazines and even now that my wedding is over I still look at magazines. I thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see myself in one of the magazines.

RW: What was your favorite part of modeling?

LG: My favorite part of modeling was feeling so special during the process. Getting to wear a beautiful dress and jewelry and having a professional makeup artist and hairstylist made me feel like a celebrity! The entire team was so nice. It was really a fun experience.

RW: What was your favorite part of the shoot itself?

LG: My favorite part of this photo shoot was how “out of the box” it was. It was so different from the traditional wedding setup and was beyond anything I would imagine designing. This made it really fun! It was a very vogue/high fashion style that I’ve only seen on TV.

RW: What do you do for a living?

LG: I am a registered nurse (RN) at Kaiser Vacaville Trauma Center. This modeling experience was especially fun for me because I wear scrubs every day and rarely get to get all dressed up!

RW: Tell us about your own wedding.

LG: My wedding was at Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista. It was a very formal black and white wedding with touches of blush pink in the flowers. It was very classic and elegant and was the wedding of my dreams!

RW: What did your husband and the rest of your family think about you doing this photo shoot?

LG: My husband was so excited for me to have the opportunity to do this. He was particularly surprised when he found out that it was a futuristic theme, which made it even more exciting because it was something so different than the average wedding. My family was also very excited and supportive. Everyone is very eager to see how it turned out!

Sacramento Wedding Inspiration: What’s Your Wedding Season – Spring {Get to Know: Elizabeth Fox}

Did you know that in all of the photo shoot features that we do, we use real brides (and grooms, too!) as our models? It’s true! We love that these real brides are going through their wedding planning journey, just like you!

Now you get to learn a little bit more about our beautiful bride, Elizabeth Fox! Elizabeth rocked our “What’s Your Wedding Season: Spring” photo shoot from the Summer/Fall 2014 issue! Isn’t she foxy (sorry, we couldn’t resist!)?

Thank you for being such a great Real Weddings real bride model, Elizabeth! Take it away:

Real Weddings: What made you want to model for this shoot?

Elizabeth Fox: I think everyone wants to feel like a princess for the day, and I am no different. While I enjoy working in a lab, due to safety regulations, I’m pretty much forced to wear old jeans and sneakers every day. Being a model for this shoot was such a wonderful reprieve from my routine. Instead of my typical drab attire, I was blessed with the chance to wear one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen! I actually felt like more than a princess—I felt like a queen!

RW: What was your favorite part of modeling?

EF: My favorite part of modeling was all of the encouragement and excitement from everybody involved. Everyone on set was really supportive and made me feel so beautiful. I felt very confident, and all of the wonderful people that made the shoot possible made the experience so amazing. It was so much more than I had imagined!

RW: What was your favorite part of this shoot? Did you relate to the season you represented?

EF: I was so in love with the setting; so much so, it made me reconsider all of my own choices for my wedding! The beautiful garden and towering trees made for a very whimsical scene. Additionally, the lush green grass and beautiful flowers were fittingly spring. I think spring is such a great season for marriage: It is a season of renewal, and a great time to celebrate love.

RW: What do you do for a living?

EF: I am currently a graduate student researcher at UC Davis, where I am working to obtain my PhD in immunology. My research focuses on studying the immune system in families with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I am not really sure how I was lucky enough to find myself in this field, but it is such a rewarding job, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to help families of children with ASD.

RW: Tell us about your own wedding?

EF: My Fiancé Adam and I will be getting married in the fall at Lehman Barn in El Dorado Hills. We’ve decided on gray, blush, and a metallic color (to bring in a little sparkle) as our wedding colors. We are planning a relatively small ceremony and reception, surrounded by close friends and family. As far as decoration, I want it to be very romantic and vintage; there will definitely be a lot of milk glass and so many paper poms! But most of all, I just want it be a lasting, wonderful memory for our family, friends and us.

RW: What did Adam and the rest of your family think about you doing this?

EF: Adam hates to have his picture taken, so the idea of being photographed for four-plus hours, sounded like torture to him. He jokingly claims our engagement shoot was the worst day of 2013. Nevertheless, he was very happy because he knew how ecstatic it made me to be given such an amazing opportunity. Of my family, my mom was the most excited. When I finished the shoot I came back to about 15 text messages from her, and I think she is more eager than I am to see the photos from the shoot! Everyone is very excited for the magazine to come out, and I’m so glad I get to share all these beautiful pictures with them.
