Trash The Dress

This is in no means an attempt to disrespect my wedding photographer because I think both he and his work are fabulous, but I am way more excited about these Trash The Dress photos than the actual wedding pictures. I think it has something to do with the amount of anxiety I felt about that day and how rushed we were to take our posed portraits. I was stressed...and cold...and I have a feeling that those things are going to come out in the pictures. Yeah, I was over the moon happy, but I didn't feel like myself. I didn't even feel like I was there. The pictures and video are going to be the only evidence to show that we got married. I didn't feel that way about the Trash The Dress shoot.

When Isabelle agreed to take our picture again, I was ecstatic! I had spent the week between our wedding day and the night we appointed TTD night, daydreaming about getting to wear my wedding dress again (and actually appreciating it), seeing my husband all decked out in his tuxedo (and actually appreciating it) and drawing attention from hundreds of people (and actually appreciating it). I feel like our wedding day was for our family and friends; this, was explicitly for us. It was magical. And we couldn't stop smiling.   


You guys, I didn't want that night to end. Isabelle sent me over 200 shots and each one is stunning, mostly because my husband is the sexiest man alive. I have no idea which ones I'm going to have printed, but it's going to be a lot, I can tell you that! Thank you again, Isabelle, for capturing this event for us on film. We will treasure these pictures forever. 

Oh, and another thing...after careful consideration, I've decided that I'm selling my wedding dress and using the profits to start a college fund for our yet-to-be-conceived child. If you are getting married and you love my dress and you're FUN-SIZED, drop me a line. If I don't hear from one of you readers by the end of the year, I'm putting the dress up for sale on eBay. Strike now while the iron's hot, ladies!

I LOVE this idea! - Your pictures turned out amazing and you both look absolutely stunning. My favorite is the one where you're laughing and wearing the chicken beanie! :)

Awesome pics. I like them all but I think both you and Wil look so classic in the shots with your Starbucks cups. Pretty oxymoronic (if thats a word) became SB is so modern yet your "looks" for the shoot are so classic. Hope that made sense.
