Facebook Real Wedding Contest Winners | Erica & Alan

We asked our past brides via Facebook to upload their favorite portrait from their wedding and other Bella brides and fans would vote for their favorite. Congratulations to Erica and Alan who are our October winners. Their beautiful wedding is featured below!

The Story of Erica & Alan

How they met: They met each other in high school but were only acquaintances. "We didn't talk much then, I was a little older and thought I was much too sophisticated at the time to talk to a younger man! A few years ago we kept running into each other out on the town. One night, Alan impressed me with his charms and coerced me into going on a date with him. From then on forward, we were connected at the hip and couldn't imagine life without each other!"
The proposal: Alan proposed on a romantic trip to Europe (London & Turkey). "While we were staying in a hotel in Bodrum Turkey overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, at a cliff top restaurant located at the hotel, Alan got down on one knee and I said yes!"
The Wedding: They had their beautiful wedding at Wente Vineyards near San Francisco! "I wanted an outdoor wedding and my husband and I loved the idea of a winery setting. That area also has a bit of horse country in it and I'm an equestrian so that sold it for me!"
On Bella Pictures: "Our photographer did a WONDERFUL job! We are still having a hard time narrowing down the pictures we want for our album because so many of them are that good! The photographer was thoughtful, reliable and completely professional. They were able to capture the style we were looking for and their shots were intuitive."
Funny story about the wedding day: "At the time this wasn't that funny but in hindsight it is pretty hilarious! After the ceremony, the wind kicked up quite a bit. We were all freezing, especially Alan and I in that photo I submitted on the golf course where im leaning all the way back. We were actually laughing at how miserably cold it was while talking the picture and that is one of the pictures that helped us win the contest! At the time we were definitely imagining the warm beaches of Maui where we departed to our Honeymoon the next day!"
