For their day-after photo shoot Leia & Brad wanted to get someone else involved – Betsy Beetle! “I love this vintage VW beetle that drives by my house everyday with a cute little luggage rack,” wedding photographer Katherine O’Brien explained, “so I asked Terry, her owner, if we could borrow her for the afternoon.”
“It’s still a little chilly in Austin where we live so Leia wore her own vintage faux leopard wrap and turquoise pumps, ” she continued. “Leia had wanted a vintage 50s style wedding dress, but couldn’t find the right one that wasn’t stained yellow from age at the thrift stores. So her awesome Mom offered to make her one! After finally picking a lace and fabric, her Mom used one of her old sundresses as a pattern. She spent months sewing, ripping, and resewing. What an incredible gift to have your Mother make your wedding dress!”
Thank you to Leila, Brad, Katherine and of course Betsy for sharing this shoot with us today!
