This Vernon Photography blog is VERY near and dear to my heart.
These two lovely people are my parents.
Married 50 years and I thought it was time to not only celebrate with some beautiful portraits (see my other post from their Vernon Photography session up at Silver Star Mountain Resort) but to also get my mom back into her Wedding dress from 50 years ago!
Before I went back to photography school more than a decade ago, there was an afternoon where my mom and I were in for a laugh so I asked her to try on her dress and we took some photos in their beautiful heritage home. We had a blast and a lot of laughs but I always knew, I wanted to do something a little more serious one day.
It doesn’t surprise me that my mom still has her dress. My parents home is like a museum inside. But it AMAZES all her friends that she can still fit into it. In fact, it was too big on her!
My mother, being a rather quiet person, unlike me; her rather extroverted daughter, wasn’t quite sure she wanted to document her in her beautiful gown. Having their portraits taken up at Silver Star was enough. She thought she looked rather silly, and under NO circumstances were we able to leave the yard in her dress! She didn’t want anyone to see her. Our neighbours have a gorgeous driveway, so I was able to coax her to walk down there, under the promise no one would see her….except dad, myself and my four year old who came along for moral support.
I think they both look so fantastic and of course there were some laughs along the way.
Thanks mom and dad for once again humouring me. I think you look MARVELLOUS! xoxo
