Hot mamma in the mud! So after Kristen's Bridal shoot we had to trash the dress. Things started off tame and by the end of the night we had her rollin in the mud and putting on her dirt "war" paint. Actually the dress only has a few spots on it. Kristen, you up for a few more shots???

For those of you that don't know about Trash the Dress ... where have you been?!!!? It's been all in the media recently. Here is a good explination of what it is and here is my take.....

Trash the Dress is meant first and formost to be a fun event, its about not worrying about a dress that you will no longer need, and it is seen as a commitment to your husband. It's about setting out to create amazing art without regard for the dress. There are just some places you wouldn't want to take your dress before the wedding day. So after the flowers are gone and the cake is eaten, you break out that dress again. Lets face it ladies, 30 years from now your daughter probably won't want to wear your dress. What good does it do to keep it vaccum sealed in a plastic box?

(Yeah i see it too, but i love this one)

Chris and my wonderful wife Allison.

notice the dirt war paint.

Few quick shout outs....

Thanks to Kristen for being a real trooper. Thanks to Chris for your dilligent efforts and not complaining too much about me always being in your shot. Thanks to Center Stage Formals of Clinton. As always a big thanks to my wonderful wife Allison, who is always right there next to me.
