Come dress yourself in love, let the journey begin.
~Francesca da Rimini
Sarah introduced me to Betty, who asked about wedding dresses. I'm not a decorator and I'm certainly no fashionista. Give me a pair of black pants and a sweater and I'm good to go. I remember being excited to go wedding dress shopping, but feeling a little disappointed with the whole process. Yes, I'd found a dress I liked, but when I saw the photos I was completely disappointed. What I wanted (strapless) was not going to work for me.
Many magazines later, I found the dress I knew was for me. And many phone calls (and a favor from a friend of my Nan's) later, it was being ordered for me to try on.
It wasn't what I pictured, but I loved it. At the end of our wedding day I remember not wanting to take it off, I'd never felt 'attached' to clothing before. But this dress was different.
