Jessica + Eric | Lazaro Wedding from Paul Festejo Photography


Jessica and Eric were married under huge oak trees on a sweeping ranch property. Their wedding and reception were full of all the touches that make rustic weddings so comfortably casual and stylish: hand drawn chalkboards, mason jars and long table seating filled with friends, family and a delicious BBQ feast.

The Ceremony
We had an outdoor ceremony at Wrightwood Guest Ranch that took place underneath a giant oak tree. I walked from the cabin across a beautiful oak bridge, across the lawn and beside the pond to finally walk down the aisle that led to underneath the sprawling treaa surrounded by all of our friends and family.

The Reception
Our reception was at the same location as our ceremony. On the other side of the oak tree was a big green law with a deck underneath the other side of the tree. We had giant farm tables set into long rows with pink and white flowers everywhere placed into wooden crates, glass bowls, and mason jars. We had dark wooden chairs with cream seats, and we ate delicious food prepared from Lucille’s BBQ.

Jessica’s Dress Search
I tried on approximately 10 dresses from JLM Couture, as well as three or four dresses from Alfred Angelo. I really loved the feel of the dresses from JLM Couture. The dress I first picked was the Hayley Paige Londyn dress, however after I put on the Lazaro LZ3213 I knew it was the perfect dress. I fell in love right away with the lace top bodice, and the silk layers on the bottom made me feel like a beautiful bird. I picked this dress because it was so different and unlike any other dress I had tried on. I felt unique. I felt as if this dress, this big lace and silk layered dress, made me stand out. I am a little framed 5’3 105 pound woman with a big personality that matched this big dress.

How Jessica Felt in Her Wedding Dress
I felt beautiful and magical and like something out of a fairy tale.

Why Jessica Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I absolutely loved my wedding dress, and could not be any happier and if someone could feel even half as happy as I felt in that dress that that will be worth the world. I have no other use for this dress and it would be a tragedy if it just sat for the rest of its life without letting someone else feel its magic.

Dacia + Jason | Inbal Dror Wedding from Renee Brock Photography


Black, white and fuchsia made a bold wedding palette at Dacia and Jason’s vineyard wedding. This wedding was all about fun: the dancing started as the bridal party moved down the aisle and didn’t stop until the wee hours. Dacia was a modern bride wearing a sensual Inbal Dror wedding dress. The lace gown had just enough vintage charm to match the classic winery venue and allowed Dacia to get down with her groom.

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was overlooking the north Georgia mountains. It was a fun ceremony where we danced down the aisle to “Happy” by Pharrell!

The Reception
The reception room, which sits above Wolf Mountain’s winery, has the look and feel of a luxurious cabin with a breathtaking view of the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. We used this as a basis for our theme which was rustic with a modern twist. We had an incredible buffet style dinner decorated with wrought iron candelabras embellished with wood textures, feathers, candle votives, and mirror centerpieces. Our menu was sophisticated Southern Style cuisine with some of our favorites being the sweet potato and pecan souffle, fried pimento mac and cheese, and baked salmon with brie cheese mornay. At some point during the day when everyone was getting ready the groom’s uncle said that he wanted to do something fun and dedicate it to us. He and the groom’s dad plotted that he should paint his toenails pink to match the ladies, but he took it a step further and added a calligraphy J on one toe and a D on the other. He revealed his surprise during the toast for all to see. Classic!

Because we started the wedding off with a choreographed dance down the aisle to “Happy” by Pharrell all of our guests were ready to have a great time. We lined danced to the “Cupid Shuffle,” jumped around to Baltimore house music, and ended the night with everyone singling along to Fun’s “We Are Young.” This was just the end of Jacia wedding Part 1. We ended the evening dancing and singing at the post reception party at in the cocktail lounge of Dahlonega Square Hotel, a newly renovated historic hotel on the square. It was perfect!

Dacia’s Dress Search
I tried on about 10 dresses from two stores in Atlanta before I tried on my gown. I stumbled upon Inbal Dror when searching for dresses worn by celebs at awards shows because I knew I didn’t want a traditional dress. There is only one store in Atlanta that sells this designer. I tried on two dresses by Inbal Dror, and I thought the first one was going to be the dress until I tried on my dress. I knew immediately that it was THE dress and the search was over!

How Dacia Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Sexy, Feminine, Fabulous

Why Dacia Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
The dress is so amazing, and I truly fell in love with it, but repeatedly asked myself, “Why keep it locked up in my closet?” It would not do such incredible artistry any justice to have it sit in my closet year after year. But, if I could wear it again, I would!
