After the Wedding Bridal Shoot

During the wedding planning process, I opted not to have a bridal shoot. About a month ago (or maybe more) I thought I should finally have a bridal shoot before I parted ways with my wedding dress. It was such fun to put it on again and romp around our downtown area! My good friend Cassidy was so good to take the photos for me. She is super talented and did a phanomenal job. It's great to have talented friends! Of course I love her for many other reasons too!

Please ignore the horrid nail polish on my fingernails. This was very last minute. I literally called Cassidy right after work one afternoon, ran home, threw on some make-up and curled my hair with a straight iron. It only took her about 30 minutes to snap these. Everything about it was spontaneous and last minute!
















Thanks for these photos Cassidy! I know I will treasure the memory of this fun afternoon and the dress I wore on the day I married the most wonderful man in the world!
