Fort Lauderdale, FL Bridal Session | Heather’s Trash the Dress Session

There is one word that comes to mind when I think of Heather….FABULOUS! I mean seriously, this girl works on a mobile fashion boutique (think food truck but filled with clothes!), The Trendy Truck! She lives and breathes fashion so it came as a surprise to me that she wanted to trash her wedding dress!

A few of Heather’s friends and family contacted me because they wanted to surprise her with a Trash the Dress session for her birthday! They had taken some hints from her regarding the theme that she wanted to do and made an adorable basket of accessories to use during the shoot, as well as a shiny gift certificate from yours truly.

Now, I’ve known Heather just over a year, and we’ve become great friends! It was a natural connection from the start. We clicked instantly and knew that we would be friends! Dave and Heather were even guests at our own wedding! It’s been so fun to photograph her love story; starting from their engagement session, to capturing their wedding, and now this fun and unique session! What will be next Heather?? ;)

When Heather set up her birthday shoot, she had a very special theme in mind: construction! Don’t be fooled! This fashion loving, lipstick wearing girl knows how to hold her own in the DIY space. One step into her gorgeous house and you will see what I mean! Every inch is decorated perfectly with old treasures that she has found and restored! From old windows to vintage pink ovens, Heather finds a way to make whatever she touches adorable! Of course…her husband,Dave, helps too ;)

When thinking of a location for her rustic and crafty trash the dress session, it was a no brainer…a salvage yard! Buildings full of old goodies and a beautiful warehouse bursting at the seams with old doors fit her vision perfectly!

We made it just in time too, sadly the salvage yard closed shortly after…bummer!

Sit back, relax and enjoy this fun and beautiful session!
