Bride's Head Revisited

Today is my best pal's 10 year wedding anniversary. I've known her since I was 5. She had a lovely wedding in a beautiful old hotel in Cape May, NJ where she had spent summers as a kid and near where her husband grew up. It was a meaningful wedding.

This has been the week that's officially kicked off my wedding season and has been filled with bridal stuff and brides and I stumbled upon this lovely Seattle based wedding planning site Junebug (with a great blog) filled with inspiration to also make yours a meaningful (and well photographed) wedding.

It's as glossy as a candy apple and just as delicious. The shoots and locations are amazing and suddenly it made my own wedding, wayyyy back in 2000 look a little...homespun.

This wedding, below, reminds me a lot of my own wedding day on a late farm afternoon in August.If I could do it again (and hey, maybe I will) I might wear a shorter dress like this pretty one and a cool little flyaway veil, (like the ones I've been making for other brides) and maybe I'd suggest to Jim he wear a lighter color suit (although he looked damn good in his dark colored suit) for our late afternoon farmhouse wedding. Suddenly I want a do-over.
