Show Us Your Life - Wedding Dresses

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is now showcasing wedding dresses instead of the home. I absolutely LOVED the WHOLE wedding planning process & really wish I could open my wedding dress up and put it on...not that it would fit, but I'd like to try. Too bad it would cost another $150 to seal it back up, so I won't be opening it! Since our 5 year anniversary is about 2 weeks away, I thought I'd participate this week. The thing that stinks is I have zero digital pictures of our wedding. Five years ago, digital cameras just weren't what they are today & I was still stuck in the film age. Since, we don't have a scanner, I just took pictures of pictures to post.

This is the bridal portrait that's hanging in our bedroom. It's an oil print on canvas so the texture may look a little weird on here. I LOVED my dress, as I'm sure everyone does and could easily pick the same one still 5 years later! I like VERY simple styles, but this one had some beading around the top and around the waist that came to a point in the back. At the point, the train actually opened up & was beaded all the way down. This picture was taken at Belle Meade Plantation. It was such a fun day!
This is another one from the bridal shoot. I love detail photos and I was also pretty crazy about my shoes, even though they were very simple. I wish I had them in black now! I guess I could still have them dyed, huh?!
On our actual wedding day, August 7, 2004. We were afraid it would be 100 degrees, choosing a date in August, but we had the perfect day. It was sunny with a high of 76 the day we wed, which until this past week is unheard of during the summer in TN!!

Another wedding day picture!

Ahhhh, this brings back great memories! I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. How fun would it be to plan another wedding (but keep the same groom!)?!!

Happy Early Anniversary Pook!!
