Shrugs and Feathers by Meg Keene I stumbled upon pictures of this amazing wedding on photographer Thayer Allyson Gowdy’s site, and I had to share them. First off, I’m in love with the bride’s jacket. One of the very first things I ever posted on this site was about bridal shrugs, and now that I know what my dress is going to look like, I’m going back to my roots to try to figure out how I’m going to stay warm. I’m getting married in the Bay Area in August, which means it will either be hot-hot-hot, or freezing and wrapped in fog. So, needless to say, I need a backup plan. Second of all, can we *talk* about her flowers?? Swoon! I know that everyone says that when you are DIY/DIT-ing your flowers you should keep it simple, but I’m absolutely not in that camp. Be brave! Be brave! Flowers are not scary! (Perfectionism is scary) Which is a fancy way of saying: I love feathers! I want feathers in my bouquet! I need to remember to buy some feathers. Mmmmm…. feathers.
