This striking series of images from Jessica Abby Photography features her personal collection of vintage weddng dresses that she gathered over 6 months from friends and family. She worked alongside couture jeweler Olivia Marcheline to create these vintage styled images!
Once they represented excitement, happiness and love, and there's no doubt they have been kept as a memento of a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Years, and in some cases decades later, they are haunting. While still in good condition, the thought of the ladies who once cherished these gowns makes me shudder. I kept thinking what happened to those ladies? Could the dresses be brought back to life and adapted to modern culture? Will the dress still represent the first owner? – Jessica
