{Trash The Dress} Wintry Bride

Who could use some cozy images of winter right about now?  I know I could!  Granted we don't get snow in Phoenix, our mountains sure do, though!  I love heading "north" to play in the beautiful white stuff every year.  I want to make snow angels, drink hot cocoa, cuddle up by the fire, and feel the chilly air all around.  It's been topping out between 111-113 the past few weeks, and any scene of winter is very welcome! 

Well, today's Trash The Dress session, submitted via Two Bright Lights by Joe Hendricks Photography, couldn't make us happier to have such a lovely winter setting, with a beautiful bride playing in the snow covered countryside.  Rhonda at  Joe Hendricks Photography had this to say about the shoot:
Southall Eden is a rustic, countryside wedding venue just outside Nashville, TN. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to photograph a bride there in the snow! Jennifer was originally married in Alabama in her gorgeous Watters gown; she obliged to be our model in the chilly weather. Why not enjoy your amazing dress again, if you get the chance?! This wasn’t a heavily styled shoot; it was spontaneous when Nashville got a snowstorm and we set out that morning. Jennifer did her own hair & makeup. Her dress was Watters from The Bride Room in Nashville, and her cozy wrap/jacket was provided spontaneously from Southall Eden’s owner. 

So, crank up the a/c, grab a blanket, a cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy this little taste of winter, in the dead of summer!


Such a pretty shoot.  I want to live here, where the snow falls so pretty on the farm! Not sure if my husband would feel the same, but I'd love to experience this.  The venue is gorgeous, as well.  I'm a fan of weddings that take place in refurbished barns.  If I could have a go at designing someone's wedding, which would be an amazing opportunity, I would love for it to be in a barn setting, so many cute ways to make it rustic and elegant!

I love Jennifer's dress, it is the perfect winter gown!  And the wrap makes an exquisite accessory.  I do have to wonder, however, what type of shoes she wore for this session.  I've lived in the snow, and attended a few events where I wore open toed heels, and wow when that snow got under the toes, it was not a pretty site!  Just curious, they are hidden here, might they be boots? No judging if so, it would be awesome in fact! 

Many thanks to Joe Hendricks Photography for submitting this amazing wintry trash the dress session, and for giving us a beautiful winter scene to get us through the doldrums of summer!
