I Spent the Day In a Wedding Dress...

I Spent the Day In a Wedding Dress...

It's our wedding anniversary month(next week to be exact) and since I didn't wear a traditional wedding dress on our wedding day because it wasn't in our budget- (in fact our wedding day was free of all the bells and whistles but most definitely brimming with love), I wanted to experience the feeling. I set out on operation wear a traditional wedding dress for our vow renewal last year. I thrifted a beautiful Alfred Sung wedding dress and everything, only to read that it was not proper etiquette to don a wedding dress at a vow renewal because it's not a wedding! Well, usually I am a rebel and break rules, but I decided to play it safe since our vow renewal would also be published in print in the local paper. 

 Well fast forward to today, a year later, still very determined to wear a wedding dress,  I added a second wedding dress to my closet. Now operation wear a wedding dress became operation wear these two wedding dresses-ALL. DAY.  I shared my crazy idea with my friend and  amazing photographer; Lea Hartman  (photographer for the entire shebang)who did not judge me for wanting to don a wedding dress all day. I also found a lovely and talented makeup artist, Brittany Taylor who had me looking pretty going about my day at home in my wedding dresses. Styling and hair by me...

  1. Man, so bummed you didn't wear what your heart wanted you to at renewal. Screw the rules! Anyway, lovely photoshoot nonetheless. And I'm torn. I love the lace of the off the shoulder but the overall look of the other dress🙈

  2. Beautiful photography. I wore my wedding dress for a fancy dress ball ten years after I wore it for my wedding. I felt so elegant all over again.

  4. Lovely idea.
    Maybe one day I will do it myself because I also don't have a wedding dress.
    I've married (with the man of my life 23 years ago) during my lunch time.
    All the best to you and your beautiful family.
