I want to continue with the Story of Us (I haven't forgotten) but I'm going to take a small jump ahead. Kelly at Kelly's Korner started a Show Us Your Life series and this past week showcased wedding dresses. In honor of the theme, I thought I'd share some pics from our special day.
Now, I did things a little differently. No white dress, no veil....instead, I wore two dresses. Go with me here, friends. I had my reasons.
I did not want an overly traditional wedding. I did not want the big white ornate dress and veil. It just didn't feel right for me. It was just too much bride for me. And I just didn't want to be that much of the center of attention. I already broke out in hives just thinking of everyone's eyes on me for. an. entire. day.
I based my whole vision off of a necklace and earring set that my Grammy wore at her wedding in 1947. From there, I decided to stick with a vintage theme. The first dress I chose was simple, easy to walk in, and showed off the jewelry perfectly.
The second dress was a sleek, elegant, 1940's-era design. It captured my grand vintage party theme just perfectly.
More to come! And I promise to fill in the gaps between our first meeting and wedding. All in good time, dear readers!
