I love when our brides choose to take bridal portraits! Not only does it give us lots of stress free time together for portraits before the big day, I also love getting a sneak peek at the dress!! It’s no secret that I love wedding dresses! It’s really funny because when Brian and I were planning our wedding, I didn’t want to look at dresses! I put off trying on dresses for as long as I could! And even then, I didn’t walk away from the bridal shop knowing that I had found “the one!” They say that you know when you’ve found it! I actually ordered my first wedding dress off eBay! That ended up being a huge mistake as the fabric was all wrong! It wasn’t until I scrolled through David’s Bridal’s online catalog that I spotted the White by Vera Wang dress that I’d end up wearing! I had never tried it on. I had actually looked at it before and thought it wasn’t cute! Crazy, right!? I had no idea if I’d actually like it in person or not! But I ordered it and when it came, I fell in love! After lots of pins and alterations, it fit perfectly and I’m so glad that I chose it! That’s pretty much how I found my wedding dress!
Jymmi’s wedding dress was actually her second dress! After ordering her first dress, she spotted a new dress online and knew that it would be perfect for her! With only a few months to go until her special day, she switched dresses! I never saw her first dress, but her second dress was perfect! I can totally understand why she chose it! And as always, she looked amazing! I enjoyed spending time with Jymmi, her sister and Mother at her bridal session at the Leslie Alford Mims House in Holly Springs!
Check out a few highlights from our time with Jymmi at the Mim’s House! I’d love to hear how you knew your wedding dress was “the one?” Leave it in the comments below!
