And the Readers Chose... (OOTD)

Hello, Everyone!

I hope you're all doing well!

I wanted to thank everyone for their input with regard to my wardrobe choice for the wedding! The leading choice at the time I was getting dressed was...*drumroll*...the Veronica Lake Dress by Matrushka Construction!

(of course, I see now that the Vappu Dress ended up pulling ahead ever-so-slightly, but I based my decision on what was leading the pack, at the time!)

I didn't regret the choice! This dress is super flattering and ridiculously comfortable. It's also machine washable and doesn't wrinkle, so it's perfect for traveling! I'm wearing a size Small, but Laura Howe (owner and designer of Matrushka) can custom make her dresses to your exact measurements. Her slogan is, "Size is relative." She makes all her dresses by hand in her shop, so I could also rest assured that no one else would be wearing the same dress. (no need to bring extras in the car! Yay!)


I opted to go with a pair of gold Bernardo sandals in order to stay comfortable and to keep the overall look "light." Also, they were the "quietest" shoes I had...which I thought would be important as I ran around snapping photos. I needed the ability to tiptoe without making noise. ^_-

So thank you, dear readers, for picking a comfy dress for me to wear for a long day of celebrating and shooting.

I'll leave off with a couple of photos from today's wedding. These photos are straight from the camera and completely unretouched, so they're not "finished" yet. (gotta do color corrections and fix out-of-place hairs, etc.) But I thought it'd be fun to show a couple shots. I heart weddings. ^_^

Congratulations to the beautiful Bride and Groom!
