Over the past weekend, I attended Wine & Nosh at Spruce Mountain Ranch. Wine & Nosh is an annual bridal show hosted by Sarah Viera Events, and Spruce Mountain Ranch. Sarah founded Wine & Nosh in 2012. Sarah started Wine & Nosh when she saw a need for a more couture bridal show where couples were not bombarded by tons of vendors. For this reason, every vendor at Wine & Nosh is hand-selected. This was the first year I attended the bridal show, so I had no idea what to expect. Let me tell you - the bridal show was nothing short of spectacular.
