Italian wedding gown by EvergreenWings Italian wedding gown by EvergreenWings
The funny thing about this shot- I saw the dress in Firenze, and I had to take the shot.

However, no matter what time of day I tried, the lightening just wouldn't work. So I ran to my host family's apartment, borrowed an umbrela and the largest flashlight I could find, and tromped back down the street to the shop window in the middle of the night. I got plenty of confused looks from passers by, but it was well worth it. Here was this odd tourist, ghetto-rigging a studio at 2am in the middle of Italy.

A little effot goes...

I love the texture and the angle you shot there.
What inspired you to design and make this fabulous creation of art?

Muhaha. My boyfriend is Italian and we jokingly argue about where we would get married. He, of course, wants to get hitched in Vegas. I want to get married in Italy. Wearing that dress.

(of course, my married-in-italy needs spawn from a deep obsession with Assassin's Creed, but it is not relevant)
