This was a super fun styled shoot with Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine and Alara Jewelry in Bozeman, Montana. With world famous rivers for fly fishing we had some amazing Montana made reels from Bozeman Reel to style the rings with. Alara features some bold and unique designers including Todd Reed, Alex Sepkus, one of my favorites- Jennifer Dawes, and Suzy Landa. Owner and designer Babs Noelle creates unique and beautiful custom made jewelry of her own. (See the Yogo Sapphire and Diamond ring below)
While I am not any good at fly fishing these precision made reels are works of art! As I am married to a German (like born and raised in Germany) who has worked with metals and the automotive industry I can say I know precision made craftsmanship when I see it. Whoa. And of course I love the color choices too. We have since bought a beautiful Jennifer Dawes ring which I love for its subtle beauty but we have not yet bought one of these beautiful reels. I guess I need to learn how before I buy the rad gear!
