Girlfriends Photo Shoot, Part 1

What do you do when a life-long friend turns 30 just days before she moves to South Korea?  You get her all gussied up with her BFFs for a fabulous photo shoot, that's what.  We enlisted the help of our photographer friend Mari to capture our craziness at a remote location near downtown St. Paul.  We were not in our wedding dresses the entire time - oh ho no - outfit changes happened.  You do not want to miss 'Part 2'.  It was rainy and muddy, but we had so much fun.

The wedding dresses were a little challenging, but I love how they capture our individual styles.  Also, they all FIT!   Elaina is in a Grecian, one-shoulder, white dress with a train.  She got married at 19 and just celebrated her 12th anniversary.  Then me - I wouldn't settle for anything but tea-length.  That was 8 years ago.  I remember wedding dress shopping with Katie and finding this ruched-lace, column dress - there was no doubt it was the one.  She got married 7/7/07 - 7 years ago!  Then Keely, our baby.  She got married last year in this gorgeous ball gown.  I still can't believe it.

Jill- you guys are simply fabulous. I positively love this idea. Everyone should wear (and be photographed in!) their wedding gown more than once.
