The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Last week my photographer friend, Laura, invited me to volunteer at the Brides Against Breast Cancer Gown Sale at Lambert Place. During the sale we saw the good, the bad, and the ugly… and yes I’m talking about the dresses not the brides. In all seriousness though we had a great time helping brides find “The Dress” while helping to support an amazing cause. I love seeing a bride when she finds that perfect gown; they never want to take it off! The giddy excitement, the hands to the face, the feeling of being a princess… it’s contagious, it all just brings a smile to your face.

Proceeds from the sale went to the Making Memories Foundation which helps those with terminal breast cancer realize their final wishes. Go to the making memories website (www.makingmemories.org) to see some of the wishes granted. The stories are truly touching!

After volunteering Laura and I couldn’t help ourserlves… we had to try on a dress. I’m already married so I chose a very whimsical ballgown (see photo above). It reminded me of a fantastic 1950’s debutant gown.

Laura, who is engaged, tried on an exquisite Monique Lhuillier gown. I look forward to the day when she finds “The Dress!” (Laura, call me when you need a photographer!)

Below I’ve posted a few photos from the event taken by Laura except of course the frame she’s in.
