A newlywed bride in Seattle is planning a “real” wedding, with a photographer and photographer’s assistant.
The bride, who asked not to be identified, said she wanted to be able to wear her wedding dress and veil without her mother’s approval.
“She has always told me that I have to dress how she wants me to dress and that she has to let me know when I’m ready,” the bride said.
“I really don’t want to wear a veil or a wedding dress or anything, I just want to dress as her, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”
The bride is a wedding photographer for a photography paper and was thrilled when her father agreed to help her get married.
“He’s like my second dad and he helped me get married,” the newlywed said.
She said she plans to do a few things that have never been done before, including wearing a veil.
“When I go to the store I’ll see my mother in a veil and she’ll look at me and she will look at my mother and I will look back at her and she would be like, ‘Oh my God, you’re beautiful,'” the bride recalled.
The wedding was a “really big step” for the newlyweds, who have been married for about three years.
The new bride said she doesn’t know if her father would approve of her wedding, but she hopes the event will inspire others to think about the traditional ways of getting married.© 2018 Cox Media Group.
