trash the dress greece destination wedding photographer nicole caldwell 01

“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:

We sure did have fun with you, in fact, I asked Cole what his favorite part of the trip was, and he said it was the photo shoot because he had so much fun on the rocks!

I think that is a subliminal ” that’s a wrap!” from this guy!
