So we got there and started sifting through the hundreds of dresses, trying them on as we went. Every dress I tried on though, seemed to be lacking something. After a couple hours of this I managed to find two dresses that I liked, but was just so overwhelmed from everything that I decided I needed a break. We decided to eat at Unusual Junction's 50's diner, but we were very disappointed to find out that it had already closed! So we told the dress lady that we were going to go find food and be back. We set out of the parking lot only to look directly across the street and see a winery!
Raven's Glenn Winery was a breathtakingly beautiful place with perfectly manicured lawns, a great view of the vineyard, and a beautiful lake running alongside it.
We were seated inside in the air conditioning with a view of the lake, but quickly asked if we could move outside to the deserted pavilion on the lake instead!
We moved outside, soaked up the sun, and feasted on fish, pastas, shrimp, bread, and wine. Oh don't forget the wine! We ordered a bottle of the Raven's Glenn Moon Dreams Sweet Red Wine. Not only was the wine made at Raven's Glenn, but the grapes were also grown there! To say the least, it was the best wine I've ever tasted!
The dress is not at all what I thought I was going to want; it's waaay more plain than what I usually go for, and the first dress seemed perfect, but just didn't look amazing, make me feel magical, or give me "The Feeling".
So to say the least, my day did not turn out at all like I was expecting it to, but those are sometimes the best days aren't they? And for me, this day, it turned out to be pretty magical! I now have my dress, I'm absolutely in love with it (I keep unzipping the bag and peeking at it!), and that's one giant thing I can cross off my wedding "To Do" list!
P.S. Sorry! You don't get to see the dress yet! I'm being extra careful so Nick won't see it. But don't worry, in one year three weeks and two days I'm getting married, and you'll get to see it after then! :P
^^^But until then, you can take a look at some of these gorgeous dresses!^^^
Peace Love and Wedding Dresses!!!
