Was this the dress you initially thought you’d wear for your wedding?
Not at all! Every detail was opposite of everything I had planned in my head all along! I imagined embellishments and chiffon or lace- something ethereal-and definitely not strapless, and I ended up with strapless and ultra modern!

Tell Me About Your Dress! Why did you choose this look?
As I was looking through dresses on the rack, the saleswoman was doing the same and pulled one out to ask if I wanted to try it on. I remember turning around to look at what she was holding up and immediately fell in love with it. The color-an ivory almost champagne color -caught my attention first, followed by the material and modern structure. This was all before I noticed it was a high low dress, so I died a little more after that!

How do you feel when you put on your dress?
When I put my dress on I feel like what I’m wearing on the outside, matches who I feel like I am on the inside. That’s the best way I can describe it. It feels like I’m wearing a perfect description of my personality. Although, I’m sure many people will be shocked by what seems like a daring choice for me, (I tend to dress very basic) I guess if I were to have my true personality come through in my clothing it would be this dress- The combination of the understated, minimal, classic vibes, mixed with the fun and non-traditional skirt. And what better day to feel the most like myself!

Why did you choose this particular bridal session location?
This location is special because it is also our reception venue. These photos were taken in the same place we’ll be having our first dance, visiting with all of our family and friends, and making memories on our wedding day. The space also goes well with the modern, structured vibe of the dress!

Any advice for future brides embarking on this wedding journey?
No matter what you had in mind for your dress- Try. on. every. kind. anyway! and expect the unexpected 🙂
