Wedding Dress and Photography

I'm so excited to share this post! My brother and new sister-in-law got married last week and they let me take some of their wedding pictures. I also made Shih-Ping's wedding dress.

We took some of the photos outside the Boise Temple a couple weeks before they were married. The rest were taken by the Boise River. The weather was perfect and all the trees are grass were finally started to turn green. I took hundreds of pictures so it's hard to narrow it down but here are a few of my favorites.

My most ambitious project of the wedding was making Shih-Ping's wedding dress! We looked around for wedding dresses but Shih-Ping couldn't find anything in the style and budget she was looking for. I had been begging to make the wedding dress and my mom and Shih-Ping agreed to give me a try. Shih-Ping sent me a couple pins like thisthis and mainly this for inspiration.

Making this wedding dress made me so glad that I know how to sew because I got it pretty close to what Shih-Ping wanted and it was WAY less expensive than all the dresses we saw in stores. And most importantly, Shih-Ping looked beautiful in it.
