A Wedding ~ Act Two
Pat had no idea what my dress looked like and thought maybe I had gone for something super simple but he was wrong and pleasantly surprised. Even though a slinky 1930s cowl neck dress was what I initially wanted, there was no denying that it was not at all right for my body type. As far as I’m concerned bias-cut dresses should just be burned. Who the hell’s idea was that anyway? (Madeleine Vionnet that’s who!) As for Pat, his swanky shawl collar tux is from JCrew. My bridesmaids all wore a shade of gray with shoes in the peacock color range.
Anyway, we decided to do the “first look” photos for a number of reasons ranging from nerves to logistics. It’s not for everyone but we’re really happy we did it! We took some photos around the Bowery Hotel and then separately headed to the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village. We didn’t know this when we picked the church but it’s actually the oldest Catholic Church edifice in New York City. Horray for history.
