The Time My Sister Had to Settle for Me...
Everyone has stories from their wedding. I got married in early January so we had ordered 250 white poinsettias from our florist. We mostly used candles so the poinsettias were the only floral influence. 3 days before the wedding we received a call from the florist that in a complete misunderstanding in their warehouse, all of our poinsettias had been discarded. They though they were an "over order" during the holidays. That's code for, "We threw them away. Oops!"
In my sister's case, she was scheduled to take her bridal portraits but rain ruined the weekend. She was re-scheduled for the following weekend but sadly, my Papa passed away. With the wedding a mere month away and us traveling to Dallas for the service we knew time was running out. She decided to forfeit portraits. Mom and I knew that she wanted photos but with her living in Dallas, her photographer in Austin, and time running out we needed to think outside the box.
Specifically, we thought outside the photographer box. We were already in Dallas for Papa's services so we called my dad, asked him to pack up Kristen's dress, "Do you have the dress? The Veil? Her belt? Shoes? Ok, her jewelry is in the little box...."
In a miracle of all miracles, Big Daddy came through big time and made it to Dallas with every single piece of the bridal puzzle! We took Kristen to Turtle Creek, I pretended to know what I was doing, and we took approximately 1 million photos in an effort to get just one that could possibly be used. They are certainly not professional, but when you have a subject as pretty as Kristen it's easy to get a few that work! Here's the beautiful bride...
