Oh, baby! Have we've got an issue for you! The August/September 2016 issue of BRIDES is extra adorable thanks to our cover stars, Australian super model Nicole Trunfio and her little one, Zion, who clearly inherited some serious modeling chops from his famous mama. But does double the cover stars mean double the insanely gorgeous wedding inspiration? You bet! Let's dive right in, shall we?
Hippie-chic brides, rejoice! We're taking you behind-the-scenes at Nicole Trunfio's Coachella-inspired wedding to Gary Clark Jr., full of A-list reception performers (duh.), flower crowns (obviously.), and envy-worthy designer duds by Steven Khalil and YolanCris (swoon...).
Still with us or do you need a moment to collect yourselves, because we're about to hit wedding inspiration overload! We've got 22 full pages of Real Weddings, chock full of so many dreamy big day details, it's like your wedding Pinterest board has come to life!

We've also rounded up the industry's best of the best — including Carolina Herrera, Kelly Wearstler, Hannah Bronfman, and Sarah Jessica Parker (have y'all seen her new bridal shoe line?!) — to answer all of your burning bridal questions.
