Last Chance: Enter to win the Vintage Hollywood Glam Giveaway

We are just a few hours away from closing the entry into the Vintage Hollywood Glam Wedding giveaway! Luckily, we are on pacific standard time so you get some extra time to enter! This giveaway has been a labor of love from the beginning! Southern California wedding photographer, Ashley Bee, captured all the glamorous photos from the day. She has such a gift and we are thankful she was able to capture the essence of what this shoot was about - GLAM!

Michelle, from the Jones Victorian Estate in Orange, CA offered the use of the perfect location...right down to having the awesome car we needed! How many venues offer brides a drive off in the 1950's Bentley?! So fun. 

We were able to get a couple of vintage umbrellas from Bella Umbrella - they rent 100's of vintage umbrellas. The umbrella's are affordable to rent! If you win the giveaway for sure you should check out using some of their gorgeous umbrellas on your big day!



All the treats were designed and created by Miso Bakes - didn't she do an amazing job? Not only were the treats beautiful...they tasted yummy too! 




It was our pleasure to introduce you all to the vendors who made this giveaway super special!  We are thankful to all of them and we know that all of them will provide you with excellent service for your wedding!


Entry into the giveaway will close at 11:59pm (PST)
