Forever Is Not Long Enough (+ PFC #16)
I can remember the details like it was yesterday…It was the most beautiful September day in Georgia as I walked down the aisle with butterflies fluttering in my stomach while the tune Canon in D by the O’Neill Brothers was playing in the background. I was a nervous wreck, but for the first time that day, I saw my better half, with tears of joy and a smile of an angel. Everything was just perfect from that moment on…

With so many friends tying the knot this year, I started missing my own wedding. Periodically when the wedding fever kicks in, I would put on my dress and run around the house in it. This time I thought it would be fun to do an “after the fact” bridal session. However, since my wedding dress would sometimes occupied an entire room (not to mentioned she will swallow everyone and everything that comes under her path lol), I opted for a lightweight, easy breezy little white dress.
Wanting a similar vintage look, I wore the same birdcage veil and headband that I made for that big day. I thought about selling these after the wedding but changed my mind because they are so special to me…I’m really glad I made that choice!
Petite Fashion Challenge #16
After finishing this photo shoot I realized how perfect this outfit was for this month’s Petite Fashion Challenge #16 hosted by the lovely Lauren of Petite on a Penny. Since Lauren didn’t specify if we should be dressed as a guest, I took the chance and dressed as a summer bride! Of course I’d never wear white (or off-white) to another bride’s wedding!! :)
The challenge: “Summer Wedding – Create an outfit for a summer wedding (the dress code is up to you). For bonus points, try to make your whole outfit, head to toe, come in under $100 (or, exclude shoes and accessories to meet the $100 mark).”
[…] PFC #16: Summer Wedding […]
Everything looks so intricate, crisp and clean. Your photos are just gorgeous, make me want to wear a wedding gown all over again.
Sometimes time flew by so fast. If felt like everything just happened yesterday. At times I get emotional too when I see pictures of the past especially.
Cheers to you and your other half….forever and ever! =)
Absolutely adorable KTRStyle!
OMG – you are absolutely beautiful… the dress and the photos are absolutely perfect… love your posting!!

Lol, I had to read through to make sure you did not think this (amazingly cute and fun) outfit was appropriate, lol. When you get a chance check me out at A Preponderance of Fashion and you will see why. -I added in a white dress too, I think we were the only ones. ;)
Beautiful outfit! The detailing on the dress is so pretty and I think the overall look is very classy.
OMG Kym you looks so beautiful. These photos are so editorial! I love the rustic feel to the photos and the dead trees makes it look so cool. Where were you? I want to take some cool pictures like this in a setting similar!
P.S. I love that veil when I get marry, I’m going to have to bother you for help! :)

KT!! You’re the only one who didn’t take the challenge literally. Absolutely ADORE this short dress and birdcage veil on you. Perhaps a re-wear if you and husband ever renew your vows? ;)
That’s an awesome idea! :) I really love what you wore too!
I love that you styled as the summer bride! You look amazing and I love your DIY :) I’m sure you were stunning on your wedding day!
I LOVE that you did a bridal look instead of just dressing as a guest. You absolutely win this challenge, based on creativity alone. :)
So happy to have discovered your blog through this challenge; following you now!

Oh very creative. I love how you decided to dress as the bride. You are one beautiful bride.

This would be a great honeymoon dinner dress as well.
Beautiful! I love how it gives off an old school/vintage vibe.
You look incredible, Krystal! I would have never thought to create an outfit for this challenge this way. Congrats to you and your hubby! P.S: Can’t believe you made that birdcage veil!

So gorgeous, KT! And wow, you made your veil/headband? My cousin had a short veil (very similar to your’s) that I instantly fell in love with! I saw your wedding pictures and I have to say that while I love this dress, your actual wedding dress is so beyond beautiful with its tiered ruffles and layers!

Tamara you are so cute and hilarious! Thank you for the sweet comment! Right back at you girlie! P.S. Hurry and sign up for instagram so I can picture stalk you there! lol :) xo
When I first saw this I thought OMG you posted your wedding photos and I was duped! Haha! I love this post though. What you wrote right under the first photo about your husband is so sweet! The dress is so cute and I love that birdcage veil you made! How creative. You need to be a stylist or a fashion shoot director if you’re not one already. Again, I love your blog!
These photos are so pretty! I just found you on Lookbook and am blown away by your creativity and vision. Your photos are always so creative and I love how to styled each an every outfit with so much attention to detail. It’s hard to believe this dress is from F21 as it looks so vintage, sort of a reminscient of the 1920’s. The pearls, the black lace gloves and those polka dot pumps with bow are all so pretty! I love your blog and am now following you on Facebook. I look forward to more lovely pictures from you!
You’re so pretty when you smile! (Not that you aren’t when you don’t, of course, but your whole face lights up when you smile :) )
The veil & headband are gorgeous as well, glad you didn’t sell them!
Aww thanks Jess! :D
Wow this is so beautiful! You made this simple little white dress into something really special and WOW that birdcage veil is GORG!!! I am so glad you didn’t sell it! It is definitely something I would never ever sell and would pass it down to my daughters.
