An Heirloom Wedding Dress

Heirloom Wedding in the Winter

Heirloom Wedding Dress

I think at some point every bride dreams of wearing her mother’s wedding dress. Even if they don’t actually wear it, there is a nostalgia in looking through your parents wedding album and dreaming of your own wedding day. Some of us were even lucky enough to play dress up once or twice in one as kids. When Brooke told me that she had decided to wear her mom’s heirloom wedding dress, I could hear the excitement in her voice. What made the dress all that more special was that her mom would be redesigning it to fit Brooke’s aesthetic.

Honoring Generations

When planning her wedding it was important for Brooke to honor not only her family but the generations that had gone before her. In addition to wearing her mother’s wedding dress she also brought one of her wedding pictures and made sure to capture photos of both her, her mom, and her grandmother together with their wedding rings.

Celebrating the Future

Brooke and Trent opted to not have a first look. As she came down the aisle on her dad’s arm, Trent welled up with emotion. Married by their local pastor amid cheers from family and friends, they shared communion before being declared husband and wife. It was an honor to capture their wedding day as I first photographed Trent and Brooke a few years earlier when they model for an editorial wedding shoot. Congratulations, Trent and Brooke.
