We did it! We found the perfect wedding dress for my Beautiful Baby Girl!
Katie O.K.'d me posting this photo because it doesn't actually show the dress ~ which is, by the way, absolutely stunning! It is very simple, elegant, graceful, unexpected and fun! Katie tried on SO many gorgeous dresses and looked beautiful in them all. Every time she'd step out of the fitting room, Pam and I would just OOOOO and Ahhhhh. But the dress she chose was somehow different. Not that we weren't OOOOOOing and Ahhhhhhing...we were. But Katie was different in this dress. She smiled. She moved. She looked happy! In the other (many fancier) dresses, Katie posed. She looked stunning. And posed. In the dress she chose, Katie played! She twisted and turned and walked and spun and said: I want a dress that I can have FUN in at my reception (which will be in New Orleans ~ with plans to hit Bourbon Street!). She wanted a dress that will let her move and this one does it. It just flows. It is both simple and elegant, yet it has an air of innocence and playfulness about it. A perfect "Beautiful Baby Girl" dress...
Life is good!
(many thanks to my "Princess", *Pam* for taking such lovely photos of her baby sister as the three of us shared this happy day. Katie even managed to include her big, brother, Ben, in the day by joining him for a Margarita when the dress shopping was done.
