I am just beside myself with excitement about these; when we first got them back I couldn't stop giggling I was just so happy!
Lisa Austin from Graham River Productions did a phenomenal job, I am so so happy with how they turned out!
I wanted you guys to be the first besides family to see them!
Since there are so many pictures (over 500!), I will be posting them in a couple different blog posts. This first set is pictures from earlier in the day.
Here they are!
I am absolutely obsessed with this dress.
I know a lot of people were very surprised at my choice of dress. I heard different people say that they were expecting something super crazy and out there. To tell the truth, I was too! But when I tried this dress on, I felt like a princess, and I loved it!!!
I figured that if there's any day to feel like a princess it's your wedding day!
So I went for it, and I'm so glad I did! I loved how poofy it was, and I had it hemmed in the front so it was a little shorter, and it looked just like a picture I found of a dress from the 50's. Below! And since that was the theme, it worked out so perfectly.
First of all, yes, that is my real hair!
I am absolutely obsessed with this hair! I will sometimes go through my pictures and just stop, and stare at this hair!!!
To get this fantastic poof (that stayed perfectly all day by the way!), Bri from Abby Warther Hair Studio, used four different pieces.
We had to keep building it and building it, because I wanted it so big! Three large hair donuts, and one long piece of fake hair wrapped in netting later, this beautiful creation was born!
I also made my own veil, since birdcage veils can cost well over $50.
My hair was done by Bri Scott from Abby Warther Hair Studio.
My dress is from Universe Bridal and Prom.
I made my veil and garter from material I got at JoAnn Fabrics.
My bracelet is from Eden Ministries.
My necklace is from a thrift store that I can't remember the name of.
My shoes are Converse All Stars.
Peace Love and Wedding Beautiful-ness
