The deeper meaning behind ants in the dress


I've recently started asking folks to choose and describe their favorite wedding photo. The photo Elizabeth chose was one of my favorites, too. But it was the story behind Elizabeth's favorite photo that really blew me away. Bride inspecting dress

Here's what she had to say:

"What you don't necessarily see in this photo is that we were looking for bugs - we had just come in from outside, and there were tiny little ants stuck in the organza of my dress."

"It's a great shot, and it's always the first of our wedding photos that people look at and say'Oooo, that's so gorgeous!'  It's come to symbolize for me what our relationship is like - a product of good luck, timing, detailed work, funny stories, and an overall experience that's breathtaking."

Ah, the power of a story.
