RED BLUFF, Calif. -- The Camp Fire destroyed the wedding dress of a soon-to-be bride, but that all changed, thanks to the help of TLC's show, "Say Yes to the Dress."

"I was just super excited, I was speechless when I first got it. Then I was like, oh my God, like I'm actually doing this," said Eryka Bumatay, the soon-to-be-bride. 

The dress is what every bride to be dreams about, but that all changed for Bumatay November 8th.

"My wedding dress was gone, my veil was gone," Bumatay said. 

Bumatay lost her wedding dress and her house in the Camp Fire.

"At first I was like we don't want to push it back, we've been waiting for so long, you know, we've been engaged for three years now," Bumatay said.

That's when she got the call from Randy Fenoli, TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress" host. The show flew Bumatay and her family to New York for a brand new wedding dress.

"I just put that dress on and when I put it on, I was like this dress makes me feel beautiful," Bumatay said.

Bumatay will get married at her parents' place in Red Bluff. Her father planted more than one million wildflower seeds, adding a colorful backdrop to the special day.

"He worked really hard to make sure the place where I'm having my wedding, the reception, it's all going to be beautiful," Bumatay said.

She said the Camp Fire was a huge setback, but she plans to push through, like so many other survivors.

"I feel like a wedding is supposed to be a happy occasion, it's supposed to be the start of something new," Bumatay said.

Erica's father said he plans on getting ordained so he can marry his daughter and his future son-in-law right here in a few days. 

TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress" episode featuring Bumatay aired on August 31.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
