As part of our photography package, we got an engagement photo session. We weren’t really interested in engagement photos. Our photographer was kind enough to switch it out for a wedding dress session. Scheduling this was the motivation I needed to complete the dress! Enjoy!
I even was organised enough to schedule my practice hair day before going to the shoot. I was so proud of myself!
She wouldn’t let me wear my sunglasses!
I was really glad I wasn’t wearing a larger or heavier dress. It was hot and humid. Because July in Florida is like that.
Then I decided to run away, or something.
In case you want to try this dress on your own, here is where I found everything.
- Lace and Peau de soie are from Carol Fabrics in Miami (no website, just an address)
- Silk Habotai for lining from Dharma Trading Co.
- Boning from Corset Making Supplies
I’ll be showing off more of Candi’s photos with my other wedding posts. If you are in need of a photographer in the Winter Haven area, I highly recommend Candi. She is easy-going and professional. She was great fun to work with. Check out her website, Holden Memories, for more details and to see her other work. She also has a facebook page.
