Alvina Valenta Dress STYLE ME PRETTY

JLM Couture in New York loves our images from Jess Watson’s dress (Alvina Valenta bridal gown) so much they used them on their new JLM Wedding website.  Look at the gorgeous gowns JLM Real Weddings has to offer.  Lovely indeed!

Matt and Jess destination wedding on September 5th, 2010 in Sisters, Oregon was surrounded by Ponderosa Pines (their favorite tree), vibrant wild flowers, a small creek, beautiful cabins, and a crafty mix of urban style and DIY elements. Their focus was nature based, spiritual, and family centered. The design touches were a blend of creative Portland style, natural pines high in Eastern Oregon, shades of aqua and green and used locally grown white flowers with accents of greenery and feathers. The day was filled with beautiful blue skies and scattered stark white clouds and a gentle cool breeze. Matt’s hand-crafted touches included hand silk screened patterns and graphics of on ties, invitations, wine labels, children’s activity books and a framed drawing of a tree guests stamped with their thumbprints to create leaves. Matt had a surprise picnic for Jess with fruit, cheese, champagne, chocolate, flowers, a wrapped present and a refinished tandem bike with custom embellishments.
