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.
Jessica + Eric | June 7, 2014 | Wrightwood, California | Dress Listing: Lazaro, 3213
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.
