Coastal Country Club // Old Ranch Country Club

Only at Old Ranch can couples experience a wedding like nothing else. A pergola crown made of hand crafted wrought iron, sits at the end of a manicured lawn that leans into the Seal Beach sky. The Earth seems to fall away, and on all sides a panoramic view of lush greens, sparkling fountains, distant mountains and sky forms around the bride and groom. There is a natural majesty of the surroundings and the feeling that the whole world has taken pause for this special moment.

The movie and it's fashion are fun, exciting and make you want to celebrate!

Stunning Champagne Wedding Dresses at our Los Angeles / Whittier Bridal Store

When it comes to the soft sophisticated color, champagne or blush pink is one of the biggest bridal trends right now. No matter what type of wedding gown silhouette you’re looking for, champagne is the perfect color for any bride to make a bold statement with her wedding dress.

We’re absolutely in love with what just a hint of champagne can do for a designer wedding dress. Similar to the rise in popularity with Ivory bridal gowns over the past few years, Champagne is on its way to being less of a trend and more of a staple.  Remember when the only option was a bright white wedding dress?! Whether it’s paired with lace to give it a vintage inspired effect, or with rhinestones for a Hollywood glam look, you can’t go wrong with a champagne wedding dress.

The big misconception with champagne bridal dresses is that “it’s not traditional” or “it’s not going to look good on me.” Champagne is one of those gorgeous colors that any bride can wear, no matter your skin tone, or the color of your hair, it’s going to look absolutely stunning on you! There are no rules when it comes to your wedding dress, all that matters is how you feel in your wedding dress and how you feel on your wedding day.
