and she said "yes".
and we and carmen (her little black dog in all the pictures) couldn't be happier!
which brings us to this past sunday. my two daughters, two granddaughters, and i met my daughter-in-law-to-be and her mom in new york city to go to kleinfeld...yes, the very one featured in the tv show, "say yes to the dress".
before we went, someone asked me if i thought we'd be on tv. and i said i was pretty sure we wouldn't be, because we wouldn't be dramatic enough and had no plans to try to talk the bride out of the dress of her dreams. besides, we all knew ahead of time that she could walk out in a feedsack and look good. it's really kind of disgusting. :)
so here is the nervous bride-to-be, ready to enter the gates.
the main lobby after checking in for her 10:00 appointment.
the large salon area.
i have to stop here and now to say that i seriously fell in love with this chandelier. i think it would look amazing in the snow house in "doctor zhivago". photos just don't do it justice of course, but that didn't stop me from taking a dozen.
seated and waiting for the bride.
while we were waiting my photographer daughter was trying to think of ways we could surreptitiously wheel one of these dress forms out of the store to bring back with us for her studio. i'm glad to say we resisted our larcenous thoughts and left empty handed.
so, now we have to end this part of the post. the whole reason for being here, i can't show you. she did try on dresses. she did look amazing in all of them. and she did "say yes to a dress"...a stunning, gorgeous, regal dress.
but i can't show it to you, of course. until july.
i will leave you with a final photo. a peek of a style she did not choose. thank goodness.
but she would have looked great in it too.
couldn't end without one final note.
yes, she fits right into the family.
