JLM Weddings

Real Brides

Corey and Stefanie


Andover, NJ, United States
Corey and I have been friends since kindergarten and knew as soon as we were engaged that we wanted our wedding to reflect our laid back, small town style. We were married at The Barn at Perona Farms, a location so perfect it felt like it was made for us!

I wanted a dress that would fit our fun personalities while still being timeless. While this dress was the last dress I tried on, I began to cry and immediately knew that this was that dress. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day!

Stefanie wore Tara Keely style 2358 purchased from Three Graces Bridal in Lebanon, NJ. Stafanie’s bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions style 5351 in champagne chantilly lace with cashmere chiffon and cashmere lining.

Patrick and Alessandra

Dover, FL, United States
Patrick and I met our freshman year of college in London, England. We were friends for many years, and on my birthday (almost a year ago!) he proposed! Our wedding was supposed to be small, my dress was supposed to be small, my bridal party was supposed to be small…but it was all big. We had a winter theme in sunny Florida, just a few days before Christmas. The day was wintry, rustic and most of all, magical. It was an honor to get to celebrate our love with all of the most important people in our lives.

Alessandra wore Jim Hjelm style 8364 purchased from Solutions Bridal in Orlando, FL.

Michael and Cecelia


Charleston, SC, United States
My husband and I spend our days on the water sharing our love of deep sea fishing. Once engaged, we knew there was no better place for us to exchange our vows than in my home state at the South Carolina Aquarium. We had a candlelit ceremony on the aquarium terrace with a backdrop of the beautiful Charleston Harbor and Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge. The reception was to follow in the main gallery of the SC Aquarium. The evening was filled with candles, champagne, and chandeliers- I never felt more glamorous thanks to my Hayley Paige Monroe gown!

Cecelia wore Hayley Paige style 6408, Monroe, purchased from the JLM Couture Flagship Salon in Los Angeles, CA.

Andrew and Shea

Birmingham, AL, United States
While my husband is from Virginia and I’m from Philadelphia, he is currently stationed for the Army at Fort Rucker, AL and we wanted our wedding to have an elegant southern vibe to welcome our guests to Dixieland. Our ceremony took place on an outdoor terrace surrounded by fall-colored trees with breathtaking views overlooking the golf course at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham, Alabama. We went with a few different styles of dresses by Jim Hjelm Occasions, which undoubtedly stole the show when we were shopping for bridesmaid gowns!

Shea’s bridesmaids all wore Jim Hjelm Occasions styles purchased from Lady In Lace in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Addison, TX, United States
I fell in love with the Guindon gown when I started to Pinterest for wedding planning. I had always remembered that beautiful striped gown that was so unique and beautiful in the back of my mind. I didn’t even know who designed it till I searched for that striped gown online. Luckily there was ONE salon that carried it in my area. And after I put it on, the rest was history. It definitely was the most beautiful dress I have worn in my entire life. LOVE LOVE LOVE Hayley Paige and all her exquisite designs.

Mimi wore Hayley Paige style 6315, Guindon, purchased from Stardust Celebrations in Plano, TX.

Scott and Jessica


Cincinnati, OH, United States
Our theme of woodland elegance with pops of blues and greens came together perfectly. We started with the ceremony in the Orchard outside the Mansion. We had beautiful lanterns in the trees, shepherd hooks with rustic vases and large lanterns filled with flowers where we said ‘I Do’. One of my favorite things were the hand-crafted small tree centerpieces and the hand-cut tree stump that our tree-inspired cake sat atop. I loved our chocolate chip cookie and milk bar, too!

Jessica wore Tara Keely style 2200 purchased from Hyde Park Bridal in Cincinnati, OH.

Shannon and Maureen


Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Our wedding day was a beautiful example of our love for each other, shared with all our favorite people.
My stunning Tara Keely gown stole my heart at the very first glance. I was looking for something interesting and glamorous, and this dress hit all the right notes. The sheer illusion neckline and low back made me feel like a runway model. The lace appliqué was so delicate and pretty, and the slim fit hugged my body in all the right places. I have never felt so beautiful, and my husband agreed!

Maureen wore Tara Keely style 2350 purchased from With Love Bridal Boutique in Kanata, Ontario.

Des Moines, IA, United States
My husband and I met 9 years ago in Mexico while enjoying our “Senior Spring Breaks” in High School. After years of long distance we moved to the same state where we got engaged and married! Our fairy tale wedding took place downtown Des Moines, Iowa on State Capitol grounds in front of a BEAUTIFUL monument! The location is really not meant for weddings but I was determined! The skyline views were breathtaking. Our reception was held in a historic venue and our guests danced the night away with station style food, cocktails and a live band. It was perfect.

Emily wore Tara Keely style 2258 purchased at Schaffer’s in West Des Moines, IA.

Taylor and Heather

Although we both reside in Arizona we wanted a beach wedding and chose to have our wedding in Surf City USA-Huntington Beach, CA. We chose to have our ceremony on the beach in the late afternoon and our reception at the beautiful boutique hotel, Shorebreak Hotel right on Pacific Coast Highway. We danced the night away with our family and friends, ate to our hearts content, and enjoyed all the beauty and fun California had to offer!

Our day and my dress couldn’t have been better even in my dreams!

Lennard and Manuela

Wedding Lennard&Manuela-412

Maastricht, Netherlands
Our wedding was branded as the Bear & Fox wedding because we call each other so. We got married at Château de la Motte. I fell in love with my Hayley Paige dress online. I decided to order it at the JLM Couture Flagship Salon and went to pick it up one month before the wedding from West Hollywood and traveled with it back to Amsterdam. My Carrie dress was a dream come true! I had 11 bridesmaids, all of which wore long gowns of their choice, in nuances of pale pink. I love mismatched bridesmaids dresses. This way every girl can keep to the designs that they are most comfortable in.

Andrew and Evan


Boston, MA, United States

Our wedding day was the highlight of our lives. Andrew and I were married at St. Mary’s in Charlestown, and we held our reception at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

I wanted a classic wedding gown that was elegant and timeless for a church ceremony, harbor-chic for our reception, and also light and flexible so that I could move on the dance floor. Tara Keely style 2308 was the first dress I tried on at Madeleine’s Daughter. It was absolutely perfect, and it really was everything I was looking for in a wedding gown. I bought it that day!

Planning our big day of course started with the perfect dress. A destination wedding was our way to celebrate with everyone longer than one day. Love and laughter is how we live our life and in turn was what we wanted our wedding to represent with friends and family. The beach, loved ones and one heck of a party was an amazing way to start our life together.

Chelsey wore Lazaro style 3213 purchased from Destiny’s Bride in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Charlie and Tiffany

Cleveland, OH, United States
A few years ago before I even met my now husband, I saw a picture of a bride in the 9102 dress and knew that was going to be my wedding dress one day. Designer Jessica Williams was going to be in Chicago for a trunk show and I knew I had to meet her and try on my dream dress. It was the first dress I tried on, and I knew right away that it was the one. It was perfect! The dress is timeless, romantic & matched our venue perfectly.

Tiffany wore Alvina Valenta style 9102 purchased at Dimitra’s Bridal Couture in Chicago, IL!

Mike and Brydon

Southport, ME, United States
Mike proposed aboard my families boat, using code flags that spelled “Marry Me”. It only took me a few seconds to figure out what it said, at which point I started crying and was overwhelmed with joy. We decided to get married on the coast of Maine where I grew up, and where Mike spent summers. Our wedding day was perfect. The weather was beautiful and the setting was pristine. We were married on the waters edge, where a tented reception followed. Dancing started well before sunset, and continued through the night to the wee hours of the morning!

Brydon wore Tara Keely style 2308 purchased from Flair in Boston, MA.
