Fifty-five years ago, my mother’s mother wore the most gorgeous wedding gown I’ve ever seen. Later on my mother wore it as did several other members of our family. Since I was little I have been looking longingly at the pictures of my family in the dress and anxiously awaiting the day when I too would be able to wear it.
This year was the year and this month was the month.
On June 9th, I married my husband and wore my dream wedding dress. I wanted to share a set of pictures which feature the first and last person to wear the dress. I wanted to replicate my grandmother’s portrait in the dress and with my incredible photographer, Rachael Owen with Catching Violet Photography, we were able to make that dream a success. The dress required no modifications to fit me and it fit perfectly.
