Style 037 and Ponte Winery in Temecula

Ponte Winery is located in the heart of the Temecula Wine Valley in Southern California. The 300 acres of mature vineyards, with its rolling hills was the location for a wedding shoot put together by Ashley Bee Photography. Karissa, the bride, wore style 037 from the Bonny Classic Collection. 

Style 037 is a Mermaid gown with pleating falling from the sweetheart neckline down the asymmetrical cut fitted bodice.  Fan pleating adorns the side hip with beading embellishments and continues as an overlay across the front skirt.  The lace up back leads to more fan pleating opening down the semi-cathedral train. It is available in White and Ivory.

Gorgeous location, beautiful bride and an amazing wedding gown all captured by a fantastic photographer! You can view all the photos taken that day on Ashley's blog

It's About Time for a new Giveaway! Bridesmaids, The Movie and a Goodie Pack!

*** Giveaway is now closed ***

Release date: September 20, 2011

If you are the bride, part of the wedding process is picking out those who will stand beside you and honor you. If you are a maid, you have been chosen because you mean something special to the bride (or groom). Either way, this is a special time in everyone's life - to bond and share good times. The memories will last a lifetime. So, it seemed only fitting that with the release of Bridesmaids, the DVD, coming out Sept 20th that we should do a little something special so the bride and maids could bond together! :) We will be giving away a goodie pack that includes the brand new, hilarious DVD movie: Bridesmaids!

Bright Stripe Sampler

And, when you all get together to watch it. you are going to need some yummy goodies to share! We picked out this yummy popcorn gift package. It has an eclectic mix of honey roast peanuts, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate stars, sour hard candies and chews and premium Cheese and Almond Pecan Corn....yum!

Entering the giveaway will be pretty simple - leave a message ON THIS POST (make sure you leave an email address on your post so we can contact you!):

  • Brides: Think of something funny, sappy or just nice about one or all of your maids and why you chose one or all of them to share your day!
  • Maids: If you are entering to win, to spend an evening with the bride and your fellow maids, share why you were honored to be asked to be part of the BIG DAY

The giveaway will be open from 09/19/2011 - 09/23/2011 

Already married? No problem, you can still enter! This will be a great reason to gather back up the bridal gang and share an evening of laughs and treats!

The winner will be chosen using to make it fair for everyone

We saw this movie in the theater and loved it so much! It's the perfect way to have a few laughs before or after the BIG DAY!

Real Bride - Velvet

I have been looking forward to sharing this story with everyone! This real bride story just reminds me of how small the world really is and is a testimony of that saying "Everything happens for a reason". Meet Velvet and Alex, married on July 3, 2011:

Last year, around this time, Wish Upon a Wedding (the national charity we support) had launched their yearly auction "Bid Your Wish For Wedded Bliss". This auction ties in with their annual fundraising event called The Blissful Wishes BallCouples planning to be married can bid for wedding-related auction items online, with all proceeds benefiting Wish Upon a Wedding. 

Wish Upon a Wedding is the world's first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals and for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation.

On November 30th, 2010 the huge, online auction was coming to an end. We had donated a wedding gown, of the brides choice, to the auction so we were watching to see how it was going! Excitement was building and then, finally, the auction closed. The winner was already a "friend" on Facebook so, I checked our her profile to see where she was from - and she was a Southern California bride! Have you ever noticed on Facebook when you visit a profile that their "Friends List" pops up random people on the left hand side of the page? Well, when I went to Velvet's page the first friend on her list was...are you ready for this?! Someone I knew and had been friends with for over 20 years!!! I actually did a double take! It turns out that this friend and Velvet actually work together and she had told Velvet about our company (knowing I worked there) and Velvet saw our posts about getting a dress from the auction! Such a small world...right? Since Velvet was local to us, we were able to meet her and show her the dresses in person. She chose Unforgettable style 1700 in White - which also happens to be one of my favorite dresses in our collection.

Congratulations to both of you! Velvet: it was awesome to get to know you! You are a terrific photographer, a gorgeous bride and a super nice woman! Alex is a lucky man...but, we already know that he knows that! Best wishes to both of you!

Velvet chose Unforgettable style 1700 in White as her wedding gown. Wish Upon a Wedding's 2011 auction, Bid Your Wish For Wedded Bliss, will open on September 15, 2011. We hope that you will bid on wedding items you will use - including your choice of any Bonny Bridal wedding gown! The auction will be open until October 31, 2011. Your bid - for items you will need for your wedding anyway - will help grant wedding wishes to couples. 

All professional photos from Velvet and Alex's wedding were taken by Harvest Moon Photography. They are based in beautiful Eugene, Oregon.
