Trash the Dress

For anyone that doesn't know what "trash the dress" is, it's when you put on your wedding dress and just totally destroy it.  A lot of people won't do it because they have spent a lot of money on their wedding dress, and it has a lot of sentimental value.  I totally understand that.  This dress was actually my first wedding dress (I bought two of EVERYTHING when I got married.  I'm very indecisive.)  Anyway...I tried several times to sell this brand new with tags still attached dress and never got any interest.  So, I put it out there on Facebook and asked if anyone would be interested in trashing it and letting me photograph them while the trashing took place.  My friend Teresa jumped at the opportunity, and she is SUCH a fun-loving, easygoing person that I knew it would be a blast.  We met at her house and headed to her cousins house to take advantage of their beautiful property.  It was NOVEMBER, and as you can see from the sunny skies, a beautiful day.  I think the temps were about 60 degrees or so.  It was crazy.  

Rock. And. Roll.

Hands down, my favorite shot of the day.
If anyone else is interested in trashing a dress, let me know.  I have one in the works, but would love to do another.  Even a trash the (prom) dress.  Fun, fun!
