One At A Time

My AMAZING photographer has sent me about twenty "teaser" photos to hold me over until all of the photos are finished. I have decided to give you all a glimpse of the wedding by taking these photos one by one and describing them to you. I know it's not a typical "recap" way of doing things, and perhaps I'll get more chronological as time goes on, but this is how it's going to be for now. I know you are aching for photos, so here we go. :)

This shot actually was my mom's idea. My mom got married in 1978 as a young bride. She kept her (tiny!) wedding dress in her closet the whole time I was growing up. I remember many days of playing dress up in her wedding dress. Those days have long since gone - my 11 year old sister now fits in the dress! But I have always, always, loved her dress.

So, here it is. My mom's dress, hanging on the right of my dress, in the room where I grew up. Love it. (Oh and there is a special story about that mirror. Stay tuned.)

Did you (or will you) incorporate your mothers dress into your wedding day?


  1. I really wish I could have. My Dad's sister and ex SIL both wore my Mom's dress for their weddings so its location is unknown. I would have loved to include it as well...

    Great picture!
