i love weddings. honestly, i love any excuse to put on a long dress and have my hair and makeup done. a girl doesn’t get too many opportunities to look completely different from her every day wear. i had the fortune of being a bridesmaid at one of my best friends wedding recently. my girlfriend let all the bridesmaids choose their own dresses, with only one restriction – that it be red. i got this dress for a killer steal – $30 bucks. i was skeptical about it being so cheap, but thought, hey, let’s give it a shot. when it came in, it looked elegant and everyone was none the wiser. the weather went from 80 to 40 within a matter of hours, and by the time the bridal party needed to take photos, it was freezing outside! i’m so excited to share this post with you. it is by far my favorite shoot yet and definitely worth braving the cold weather for.
