The hardest thing about being a photographer is having to keep photoshoots like THIS- a secret! I love showing my clients off and I love sharing their photos & stories, but naturally a wedding dress has to be kept a secret up until the actual wedding! Justin & Cassidy have officially tied the knot and I can finally show off these beauties we took 2 months ago!!
Cassidy, you are one gorgeous bride and your dress is absolutely stunning!
Her wedding dress is a Lace Lover's dream! Look at all those lovely layers and dainty details!
When Cassidy first started talking about her bridal portraits, she told me there were certain items that she wanted to incorporate into her shoot. One of these items was her grandmother's wedding dress that was handmade by her great aunt. It shares similar feature's to her own dress, including a row of buttons and lots of intricate lace. This dress is so pretty and the history behind it is equally as beautiful.
I'm not much of a seamstress- I think the most intricate thing I've ever sewn was a quilt. All I know, is that I CANNOT fathom the amount of time, knowledge and patience it took her to sew this delicate lace fabric, and she did an immaculate job!
Cassidy's bouquet is not only unique, but it was custom-made by her grandmother. While fresh flowers smell amazing, we all know that sadly they only last a few days- a week at most- before they begin to wilt or discolor. Being that Cassidy's floral arrangement is composed of silk flowers, she will be able to display her bouquet in her home decor for years to come!
Last but not least, Cassidy wanted to include a picture of her mother from her wedding day!
I absolutely love all the sentimental stories behind Cassidy's shoot. A wedding day can go by so quickly for a bride. All the planning and thoughtful details that went into the day are sometimes lost or go unmentioned in the whirlwind of events, but I'm so thankful that Cassidy took a moment out of her busy schedule leading up to her wedding to allow me to capture these meaningful photos for her!
Congratulations Cassidy & Justin! I hope your special day was everything you imagined! I hope that it was filled with family, friends and amazing memories that will last a lifetime! Best wishes to you both!
