My photographer posted his preview photos today and I've been looking at them over and over. I cannot wait to see more. He is amazing.
So I'm going to try and recap different aspects of the big day with you as I get photos, video, etc.
But because I can't save one of the best things until last... I'm doing it first... my dress.
Amsale Blue Label Dahlia.
The very first dress I tried on... purchased from White on Daniel Island... customized with cap sleeves by owner Jodi.
Hand made skirt.
When I bought this dress at White..when I decided this was 'the one', Jodi shared with me that this dress truly was meant to be my dress. Because just three or so days prior to my appointment (which I had made months in advance), Amsale called Jodi and begged her to do a random Amsale trunk show. They only had four dresses for her to show, but Jodi agreed - she only does 2 to 3 Amsale trunk shows a year..if that.
That Saturday I walk in and have a few pages of dresses I love... and one was the Amsale Dahlia. Jodi saw it and knew - "You're in luck lady, this is one of only four dresses we have from Amsale AND we're doing a trunk show for them today."
So, not only did I get this amazing dress completely by chance, but also for an incredible price - otherwise, I probably could not have gotten this dress because it would have been way, way, way too expensive.
I'll have more pictures of it for you later - but here are the pro's preview photos...
So, without further ado..... My.Dress.

|My photographer knew I was a dancer and wanted shots with my pointe shoes. Don't worry,|
I didn't wear these all night. I'll have another post later with my 'Something Blue' shoes. :)
|I wore my mother's wedding veil.|
|I also wore (for pics outside) my grandmother's mink stole - it still has her initials |
monogrammed inside it. The bridesmaids are behind me - their dresses were GORGEOUS
and I'll have another post on that later.
|Also wore pearls given to me by my grandmother when I was young and wore her |
emerald ring on my right ring finger. The earrings and bracelet were my wedding
gifts from Bradley. They matched my emerald rings perfectly.
|I love this photo. My.Dress. Love.|
