It was a beautiful sunny morning yesterday and the bride and bridesmaids arrived for their final fittings and I took some pictures of them.
This is the neatest looking wedding I have seen in a long time. Though the bridesmaids’ dresses are of the same style, they are different colours and have different embroidery. Each of the girls are wearing western boots with their dresses.
The bride’s dress has been recycled from her mother’s and grandmother’s dresses. It is so refreshing to see this girl wear something traditional yet non traditional.
She is so excited with the dress and I am so happy that I got to do the dress for her.
The fishtail in the back has a bit of a train, perfect for this bride.
It fits her perfectly. And then we had some fun. Why not, you only get married once.
Yes, she is wearing cowboy boots too. Her mom was unsure of it (though I loved the idea), when she saw the outfit together, she became excited about the total look.
Love the pose she struck in the above picture and the one below.
I must say I have enjoyed working with this young lady. We headed out to their farm with one of the dresses I had to tweak and saw what they did to the hay shed. It is gorgeous. The smaller hay shed is the “church” and guests sit on bales of hay. The large hayshed is where the reception is going to be held. They have tables set up, lights strung, a small dance floor and the head table up on a stage. The small room to one side is the bar. Lovely but too dark to photograph. We had a spaghetti dinner with the early arrivals, visited with old and new friends and then came home. We are not going to the wedding today as there is too much to do. We have to can more fruit.
