Since the weather has been colder and we’re moving into Winter, I thought this is the perfect time for this blog. Towards the end of last year and the beginning of this year, Thao Vu of Thao Vu Photography approached me about coordinating a shoot for Winter Bride trash the dress. Basically a group of married girlfriends will get together and wear their wedding gown 1 more time. I thought that was such a great and cute idea so I jumped at the opportunity. So within a month or so, we started the ball rolling by collecting ideas, discussing our vision and all came to fruition.
The photoshoot was so much fun as the husband were also there…mainly to keep the ladies warm or hold their shoes. 🙂 They were a great big help in carrying the props too.
The location that Thao found was fantastic, it was such a beautiful place and so fitting for this particular shoot.

Each beautiful ladies had their personalized hanger.
Such a beautiful group of girlfriends!

The girls were so brave facing the cold and posing at the same time.
Nga’s Louboutin shoes were gifted by her husband on their wedding day…*swoon*
I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the bouquets! They were each so unique, which were definitely fitting for the shoot.

Anne is so cute! She loves to jump too 🙂
Now the details…
I remember going up on a ladder and hanging the yellow pom poms at 4 months pregnant
Before the shoot, the husband and I walked around in parks and picked up pine cones 🙂
