So back in July I was looking at elizabeth messina's photos of jessica simpson on her wedding day, and i made a realization. the photos were gorgeous, but i was feeling slightly unsatisfied with them, and i tried to put my finger on why. i discovered that, for me, wedding photos are so wonderful for a really specific reason.

i'm a regular girl. i'm not famous or drop dead gorgeous (and i bought mascara for the first time in at least 7 years a few weeks ago), but i get to surround myself with special, amazing "non-famous" girls all the time. and on their wedding days, they all look like famous, drop dead gorgeous magazine models. and that's something this regular girl feels so good about.

here's to all my brides from this year, looking better than any celebrity could.
