As our guests moved from the cocktail hour on Pippin Hill’s patio back into the granary for dinner, my bridesmaids and I went up to the bridal loft for my dress change.
I wrote about having a second dress just after our wedding. At my first fitting with the Jorge Manuel gown I won, my seamstress made it sound like she was going to dismantle the gown to alter it and preserve the fabric flowers on the bodice. Worried about the outcome, I bought a sample dress at a deep discount to have as a backup. When I saw Jorge a few weeks before the wedding, he said that he liked it when brides change dresses and I decided to use both gowns.

Along with the dress change, I decided to change shoes. My ceremony shoes were simple, and I thought it’d be fun to wear some more sparkly shoes for the reception.
