One Last Wedding Post

I promise. This is the last wedding post! A few people asked for the story behind this picture posted on last week's Friday Letters series. So, since I aim to please, I'm going to tell you the story. Which really isn't much of a story at all.
 If you read my other posts about my wedding (click here to view them!), you'd know that Steven and I got married at my uncle's lake house in upstate New York. He has a beautiful property right on Lake Ontario that has a swallow, flat rock bottom. When all our wedding "duties" were completed, we decided to get in the lake to try to capture some once in a lifetime photos. In my wedding dress. And his linen suit. Yep, we did that. And I am so happy we did!

My photographer was such a trooper and slipped on some water shoes and followed along right behind us! Really, how amazing is she??!
Why not hop in a smelly lake on your wedding day? After all, you do only get to wear the dress once. Might as well live a little while you're in it.

This is awesome. I always wonder when I see these pictures "is this after the reception when everyone is going home? Because it is always still light out". Might as well have fun. Plus, you can always dry clean it.

Oh I love it!
My older brother and his wife did this as well. They got married at a venue that had a waterfall right outside of it, so after everyone was well on their way to being stupid drunk, they swam out to the waterfall, her in her dress and him in his tux. Best part of the whole wedding for sure!!!

I wondered about that picture! I still wear my dress from time to time - I seriously put it on and sit on the couch to watch TV. I figure since I spent that much money on it, I might as well wear it every now and then! I really want to take "trash the dress pictures with some horses next fall. We wanted to get our wedding pictures taken with my horse but our photographer was too much of a poop :( We'll do it on our 5th anniversary instead!

These pictures are just plain gorgeous. That was so sweet of your photographer to do. Can't let a great shot go!

My favorite is definitely the last shot. SO beautiful!

Did you hear about the "trash the dress" shoot that went wrong????

I think it was in Quebec or something... the current was really bad and the photographer told her to go stand on a rock in the water so it would look like she was "floating" on the water.... and she slipped, and died!

Such a horrifying story. Now everyone is telling me to avoid doing one myself.

I love the pics in the water! What an awesome idea! I've always wanted to do that sort of shoot with my wedding dress.
