“As a bride looking for a one stop shopping guide to assist with the daunting task of planning a wedding, a friend picked up a copy of East Bay Bridal,” said Page Ramirez, owner of Cupcaked ( in Livermore, CA and a recent bride-to-be. “It quickly became my wedding bible. Everything from bridal gowns and photographers, to bachelorette parties and wedding venues. I visited almost every venue listed to find the perfect one, what a tough choice!
