I had the pleasure of meeting the gals from Sierra Bridal at the January 5th Get Married Modesto Bridal Show. I immediately struck up a conversation with one of the owners, Sandy, because I’m from Sonora and went to high school there. Turns out I went to school with her daughter! Small world…

I hauled my cookies up to Sonora last Friday to photograph their store. They had a lovely Valentine’s Day event with music and an actual vow renewal in their little chapel. (Contact Sierra Bridal for more info on their cute little chapel.)

I’m in love with MANY of the wedding gowns they carry. They have a wonderful sampling of unique, romantic, classic, and any other style you would like to try on. I particularly love the gown Emily tried on with the detachable skirt. Genius! Ball gown for ceremony and photos, and a sassy little beaded dress for the reception!

They also carry lovely hand-made sashes, garters, bouquets, and boutonnieres – great accessories to customize your unique wedding.
