Hot Trend: Peacock Accents

We're working on the real weddings for our next issue, and we're seeing some gorgeous things! We're so excited about some of them that we cannot contain our excitment.

One trend I'm seeing a bit more of: Peacock Accents. Colorful, elegant, yet somewhat whimsical. Love it. And it certainly makes a statement!

Diamond Bridal Gallery fulfills a Christmas Wish

This past December, one of our local radio stations had a “17 Days of Christmas" campaign, to help out people facing the difficult economy.

It was wonderful news for engaged couple Shawn Owen and Nicole Janson, from Colfax, California, set to marry on September 19, 2009. After calling in and describing their need for help in preparing for their upcoming wedding, Diamond Bridal Gallery stepped up to make their wish come true.

Diamond Bridal Gallery donated an all-inclusive bridal package to the bride -- this included an exquisite gown, full fitting service (Nicole had the gown fitted in January) and custom alteration package.

How incredibly cool is that?

Check out Diamond Bridal for yourself!

Lakeside Luxury Benefit Event

A Special Blog Post from our Friends at Memory Journalists and Dynamite Weddings.

As we start to wrap up this fleeting summer season, let's take advantage of a picturesque summer evening on a serene mountain lake to enjoy splendid weather, fine food, great wine, some music you can groove to and give back to a notable cause here in our community.

Come to Lakeside Luxury, a charity event at Ice Lakes Lodge in Soda Springs, CA for Saturday, Sept. 19th, 4-9 p.m. Proceeds from the event will go to Shriners Hospital for Children, Sacramento. We are anxious to share the amazing lakeside views at Ice Lakes Lodge, complemented by an evening filled with elegant wines, delicious food, an eclectic silent auction, great music and dancing. This event is hosted by The Memory Journalists and Exquisite Events & Entertainment with sponsorship by Style Media Group.

This event will benefit children in need of services that only an amazing hospital like Shriners can offer: "Children up to the age of 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate are eligible for admission and receive all care in a family-centered environment at no financial obligation to patients or families." While many acknowledge such outstanding places exist, most don't understand the importance of such a first rate hospital unless they are in a situation that forces them to utilize such services. Let's make sure that this generosity continues to support children and families in need.

Ice Lakes Lodge has been generous enough to offer a discount on rooms for this event, available at $139 + tax. There are only 34 rooms available so be sure to contact Linda today for your room at 530.426.3871, mentioning Lakeside Luxury. We also have Lakeside Luxury special transportation rates available from Luxury Limousines of Sacramento. They are offering their party bus with a pick up near Highway 80 with a rate of $67/person. There's enough room for 25 people. Get your friends together and contact me via email or phone (916.212.0665) to reserve your seat on the bus today!

For ticket information, visit LakesideLuxury.blogspot.com.

Check out the amazing attached invitation, created by the creative Stephanie Cooley of Stephanie J Designs!

If you can't make the event, but would like to make a donation to the event, please send your donation to: The Memory Journalists, ATTN: Lakeside Luxury Event, P.O. Box 6960, Folsom, CA 95763 or contact me via phone or email to coordinate.

Thanks for your support!
