Wanna know a secret? I bought my wedding dress before we were engaged! One day in March 2010, while Chris and I were window shopping on Newbury Street in Boston, we wandered into Betsey Johnson (ok, I dragged him). That year Betsey was doing a lot of wedding-esque party dresses and I pointed out this dress to Chris and said: "If we ever got married, this is what I would wear". Well, one month later while window shopping with a friend on Newbury again, we strolled by The Closet Consignment, and you know what was in the window? This dress. In my size. for $80 dollars. How could I not buy it? And hide it in my closet? And hope I got engaged someday? Well, as luck would have it Chris proposed a few months later and the first thing that was taken care of was my dress. After some late night ironing with a flat iron (yes, for hair), and fluffed up by a couple of vintage petticoats, it had the perfect 1950's vibe I was going for. I have never loved a dress more.
There will be plenty more wedding pics this week, but if you're feeling antsy you can head on over to the Spring Smith Studios Blog and check out the rest!
Also while you're there, I would love it if you could leave her a comment. Spring is running a little contest with me, if I can get 75 comments on the post, I win something special. Thank you for taking the time! xoxo
