Real Brides: Ashley P.

My name is Ashley, and I had the privilege of marrying my best friend, Ryan P., on November 14, 2015 at Ponte Family Estate in Temecula, CA. Needless to say, it was the most wonderful day of my life. The weather, setting, and details could not have come together more perfectly. Ryan and I met in 2008 while I was working at a small boutique near the University that I was attending. There isn’t a man on this planet that is as kind, selfless and hard working as my wonderful husband. I found my Moonlight Couture dress in March 2015 at Mon Amie Bridal Salon in Costa Mesa, CA and knew immediately that it was the one! I had shopped for a wedding dress only one time prior to my appointment at Mon Amie and had come up empty handed. I knew that I preferred a mermaid silhouette, but I had yet to find a dress that combined a romantic organza skirt with an embellished bodice. The Moonlight Couture dress that I selected was the very first one that I tried on at Mon Amie. I knew immediately that there was something special about the dress. I felt so beautiful. As I walked out to show the dress to my family and friends I couldn’t help but smile. The bridal consultant encouraged me to try on several others, and I am so glad that I did because with each dress that I tried on it became more and more apparent to me that the Moonlight Couture dress was exactly what I had been looking for! At the end of the appointment I tried the dress on again and did not want to take it off. I said yes to my Moonlight Couture dress that day, and could not be happier with my decision! I absolutely loved wearing the gown on my wedding day, and I wish that I had a reason to wear it again and again. I have never felt as beautiful as I did wearing Moonlight Couture on my wedding day!
