Category Archives: Trash the Dress
As military wives, many of us have had a JP wedding instead of a “real” one, and because we move so much, no one wants to haul the dress around forever (Your daughter is NOT going to wear it, you delusional women out there). So how excited was I when Tanya told me that she wanted to do the bridal shoot they had never had AND trash the dress? VERY excited.
We found the perfect location (Raven Rock Park, NC), and Tanya made my life better by agreeing to walk a whole mile to the shoot site (and back again) in dressy shoes. She is such a trooper, and I think the pictures speak for themselves in AWESOMENESS.
It’s our anniversary (yesterday, actually), and we’re celebrating four fun, crazy years together. It’s been a wild ride, but we’ve enjoyed it immensely (and here’s to 40 more!).
One of the most awesome things we did two years ago was pull out my wedding dress and do a Trash the Dress photo shoot. Our wedding photos had been very traditional, and we wanted something fun, creative, and different to put on our walls. Jim and Sarah Werner at Werner Photography did our shoot, and they were amazing! We trekked all over Oklahoma City and had the photo shoot of our dreams. In honor of the anniversary, we wanted to pull these out and show everyone.
Trash the Dress is such an awesome concept, and it’s a load of fun whether you are a newlywed or a longer-wed. If you don’t have your original wedding dress (or don’t want to spoil it), you can usually find one (or a decent formal that will suit) at a thrift store. And if you need artistic inspiration, just Google it!
