A new type of wedding photography called “trash the dress” is quickly becoming a popular trend. It entails brides basically running around in their wedding dresses doing whatever the heck they feel like. I'd never do anything too crazy in my actual wedding dress, so I bought a stand-in (that looks nothing like the real one) at a thrift shop. Here's some photos that my fiance's father took of me and my 2-sizes-too-big wannabe wedding dress.

There's not actually much trashing going on…mostly me standing there in really heavy makeup. Maybe I'll get a little braver next time around! All these photos were done by Nate's dad, Craig, who owns the photography and videography company CS Cyrus Media. Check them out over at www.cscyrusmedia.com.
