Because it's that kind of year...

I give it up to you, 2009-2010 brides! Planning a beautiful wedding during a recession? Having to cut back and not get what you've always dreamed of? Pshhaaa! Being a wedding photographer, I attend lots of weddings .... lots... and I am here to tell you that it is so possible to throw a beautiful affair on a less than bountiful budget. Thought I would share one thing I have been obsessing over for a couple years now... J.Crew Weddings. Their wedding gowns are elegant, classy, made from super beautiful fabrics and are the fraction of the cost of a Vera Wang. Check out some of these totally reasonably prices options! (Can you spot which wedding dress is only $325???)
