“Your dress already gets so dirty from the ground and the train dragging behind you, and the dirty dance floor, taking a little dip is not going to damage the dress anymore than it already is.  I suggest squeezing every ounce of joy out of your expensive dress that you can, and underwater pictures are totally worth it!!”- Lindsaytrash the dress greece destination wedding photographer nicole caldwell 04trash the dress greece destination wedding photographer nicole caldwell 05trash the dress greece destination wedding photographer nicole caldwell 06trash the dress greece destination wedding photographer nicole caldwell 07

Kyle and I had loved the idea of jumping in the water after the wedding.  There was a little hesitation on how the Mothers would feel about the so called “trash the dress”, but after a little persuasion, we were back on board!  Not only did our pictures come out completely amazing and breathtaking, but it was an experience we really enjoyed with each other as a freshly married couple.  You spend so much time being poise and wearing your smile throughout the night, that after some dancing and partying with everyone, it was a great way to really let loose and have some FUN with just each other!

If anyone doubts the thoughts of having such an experience and ruining their dress… you have to think of two things;
 
1.  After spending all that money on a dress, are you really ever going to be able to wear it again?  Will it just sit in a box at the top of your closet for many years to come, or will you get some amazing pictures to add to your already incredible wedding album?
 
2.  Even if you plan to wear it again, or keeping the dress in the slim hopes that your future daughters or granddaughters would not find it out dated and want to wear it, you can simply take the dress straight to the cleaners and they can clean the dress for you almost to brand new!
 
Here’s the proof:

Beautiful rainy morning in Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.  Italian tradition is the groom meets the bride at the City hall with a bridal bouquet of flowers for her, the couple then weds in La Sala Rossa nel Quartiere del Governatore (The Red Room in the Governor’s Quarters.) 

After the ceremony, we were able to take photographs in Il Salone dei Cinquecento (The Hall of the Five Hundred) and rooms in the Palazzo Vecchio.

After the wedding the couple enjoyed a private intimate celebration at the Ristorante Oliviero. 

Images of the Castle Monsanto celebration to come.
