here’s a few notes on the dresses highlighted in this post:
the brown dress (as in picture #1) is actually not a dress at all. but more like a large sheet which was wrapped around me, twisted on the ends & safety pinned into place. kind of like a sarong.
and as for Jarod… he wasn’t supposed to be in these pictures. i made him put on his street clothes (what he actually wore to the photo shoot) & insisted that he join me. and i’m so glad i did! these are our favorite photos too!
our photo package included a 20 x 20 print of forest 3.
pictures #3 & 4 are showing off my custom made silk dress. knowing that we wanted to have fun photos made & thinking they would be more like real wedding photos (ha!) we hand picked the fabric & designed it ourselves. of course, we handed the actual work over to a local tailor & voila – there it is! btw: the gold accent is detailed with dragons and Jarod bought me the pearls as a special gift.
picture #2 supposedly highlights marriage costumes from history… though we’re not really sure which part of history! :0
you could have probably guessed it (or maybe not) – Jarod picked out the english country side outfits!
the dresses is photos #5 & 7 were a wee bit too small, but most hilarious (besides my inability to sit in the little numbers) was Jarod’s assigned pale blue & burnt orange suits! i think next time i’ll let Jarod pick the suits & then i’ll find dresses that match! even though they were obnoxious he did a great job having fun!
waiting is the hardest: we got word late last week that our wait for our little girl may be stretched out for 18 months… that would make her homecoming around Christmas ’08. for more updated info visit the “lil’ red butterfly” link…
