Ya Mon! Let's Trash That Dress*! (Pt. 1)

Okay, maybe not THAT dress, but a white dress nonetheless! I couldn't bear the thought of trashing my actual wedding dress, so I ended up finding this VS maxi dress on ebay for $30! My mom and I dressed it up a bit by adding a loooong white ribbon to tie in the back, but that's about it. It didn't really need much for us to just trash it!

See what I mean?!

So, the morning after our incredible wedding and reception, we rose with the sun (err...tried to, at least) in order to fit in a TTD before Ashley & Philip took off for home. It's repetitive, I know, but they were AWESOME with this!

Ashley & Philip then scoped out the best area - she hopped in a little boat and went out on the wavy sea to take pictures & he was our test jumper! Talk about dedication :) Thanks Philip! We only had one shot to get this right, so Ashley had all of the camera adjustments ready to go before we jumped.

Then it was time for us! Mama Quiche & Sister Quiche Nen were able to capture pictures of us running on the dock, while Ashley took pictures from the front.

1,2,3 JUMP!

A close up of the jump. It looks like Mr. Q tripped and fell in!

I hate putting my feet on the bottom of any ocean/sea/lake, so I immediately started treading water and the swam into Mr. Q's arm. Good thing I did because 45 seconds later, what should happen to swim by?!

A STINGRAY! I was freaking out. Mr. Quiche was a little freaked, but he kept his cool. I told him if he put me down then we'd have some serious issues. Smartie pants that he is, he hung on ;) Then we took a few saucy shots...I'll share this one :)

Once the 14 foot stingray (I swear the diameter of that thing grows larger each time we tell the story!) swam away, we swam over to the ladder. My sister snapped this cool picture of me gliding through the water.

Then Ashley snapped MORE saucy shots as we made our way out of the water.

Then we headed over to the beach for (what felt like) a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photoshoot....only with clothes on. Coming up next (even though there's a little preview at the top of this post!)!
