Trash The Dress

I kept a secret from the hive…

When I left Columbus and packed up my wedding dress, I just couldn’t leave her alone on the honeymoon. Before we left our Hilo rental, I made Mr. Funnel Cake lace me up and take a “few” pictures of me out in the backyard because I really wanted some photos of my Sabelle in Hawaii.

Mr. Funnel Cake did his best to shoot in raw so I could edit later, and here are the results. Some of Mr. FC’s shots were pretty over or underexposed, but with some a lot of editing I think we salvaged a few good ones. :)

For the shoot, I put my hair up in a simple bun with a red flower clip I bought in Hawaii. I switched up my makeup from the natural look I had during the wedding with red lips and purple eyeliner. I also wore the alternate pearl earrings that I hadn’t worn so much on the wedding day.

It was really windy in the backyard, so I knew I’d have some of those beloved flyaways again. Whatevs. ;)

…um…and if you can’t tell, I’m totally sporting flip flops under my dress. Very laid back! Everything was thrown together in a jiffy. :)

I should probably photoshop that random drain pipe out of these if I ever decide to print any of these…but I only corrected in Lightroom, so this is all I’ve edited for now. Mr. Funnel Cake is not a professional photographer, so please forgive him for his framing!

I’d kill for a backyard with a view like this!

Love me a warm photo once in awhile…it makes it look warmer than it actually felt with our rainy weather and low temps during the honeymoon. I can almost imagine the suntan I never got. ;)

I love these beach photos, but I’m positive I got my dress dirty on this lava rock. Washing would have to wait until we were home!

I’m really happy I asked Mr. Funnel Cake to take these photos. I absolutely loved wearing my dress again and seeing it in a Hawaiian setting. If only we had a real photographer around to take pictures of us both!

Would you do a surprise TTD on your honeymoon?

    I never would’ve guessed that these weren’t done by a professional photographer. You look great, and Mr. FC did an amazing job!

    These are beautiful, I’m loving the contrast of your white dress on the lava rock…and your purple eyeliner & red flower are just so colorful and Hawaiian!!

    @jaina8851: I packed my dress into its garment bag and then just crammed it into the suitcase. Totally wasn’t worried about wrinkles, and you can’t even really tell it was flying because the dress has so many folds. The only thing I warn is how heavy it is… I had such a hard time with my suitcase weight because I couldn’t really buy or bring anything with me from Columbus or Hawaii without going overweight… and I was really struggling with my carryon weight on the way home too!

    @YoungBride1414: Oh I haven’t heard of her but that sounds really fun! :)

    I’m going to Hawaii too and I love this idea. O_O I’m just scared the airline would mess up and leave it on the runway LOL. Great idea! You look amazing!

    These are beautiful “trash the dress” photos. I want to have a beach wedding and get pictures taken of me in the dress as the waves roll in. I’m pretty sure oversaturating the dress with Seawater will absolutely trash it!

    @SuperDuperBrit: Oh you should if you can! Don’t worry about the airline losing anything! :)

    @priyathescientist: Mrs. Meerkat took pictures in the waves in her dress and she cleaned it and wore it again for a second reception afterward. So you might not trash your dress after all! But you should definitely get those pictures if you’d like them. They are so worth it!
