Splashin’ The Dress!

After all of the stir about the “Trash the Dress” phenomenon here on WeddingBee, I was a bit scared to post the outcome of the OC Trash Bash that I attended a few weeks back. But then again, the results were so awesome that I had to share with WeddingBee if just for the sake of enjoying a photographic experiment. You see, getting pictures back from multiple photographers from the same day has to be one of the neatest things ever… even before you throw in the perfect Laguna Beach day, surf and wedding dresses!

(these are after I was completely soaked and my contacts were full of salt and sand and my eye makeup was running… so we did a fashion-style shoot)








Now, these are just the teasers from the photographer’s respective blogs, so who knows what the full CD holds in store! I’m just still grateful to have had such a fun day with other brides and wonderful pictures to share from the experience. It’s fun being a test subject sometimes!

    Wow. You look like a model :P Fantastic stuff. I think TTD is really cool but I think I love my dress too much to do it. Plus I can’t really run or move freely in my dress (it’s mermaid-ish).. So it would be kind of boring lol.

    WOw wOw WOW Kim – you did great! Thank you so much for being such a good sport about the whole thing. Your vintage dress is gorgeous. I actually like how you named it “Splashing the Dress” – which is more accurate since we didn’t really do any “trashing”.

    Ooo, lovely! I’m on the fence for TTD but for ‘splashing’ like yours, I like. Just nothing that would ruin the dress forever….

    So model like! I love the sexy splashing in the water.

    I still think that the general actions of those posts (from both sides) on the original Trash the Dress were ridiculous. That post made me not only embarassed to be a bride-to-be but a woman as well (so many stereotypes in there). Do what you want but don’t be offended if someone has opinion, that’s how I was brought up. With that said, the first picture is the best of the bunch.

    Mrs Lemon you’re gorgeous! I was there as well and was so lucky to have hooked up with April from Ohana photography (I’ve posted the link to the blog with our pictures). These are, without a doubt, some of the best pictures of me I’ve ever seen!

    Hey Lisa,

    Have you found a photographer in Seattle to do a TTD session for you? If not, give me a call. I’d love to do it!

    Check out Megan & Travis’ TTD session on my blog.


    I was out at Discovery Park on Sunday for Alexa & Camilo’s TTD session as well. Those images will be up this week so check for them as well.

    All the best,
