I couldn’t resist posting some images this morning from stylist, Emily Henderson’s, lovely backyard wedding. Gayle Brooker is the photographer behind the beautiful images below and I think she did a marvelous job capturing their celebration. And how amazing is Emily’s dress? She found it on ebay…

red is such a hard color to get it right, but this bride did a wonderful job with the bmaids dresses.

I’m so excited about this post because I’m wearing the same dress at my wedding in June! I’ve altered mine a bit but it’s great to see it looking so beautiful on another bride.
