Love Story Of The Day: Bride Wears Gorgeous Dress That Originally Belonged To Her Mother

As soon as Courtney and Chris' film by Theory Y Design began we were immediately taken by the beautiful neckline and lace detailing on Courtney's dress, which was only made better by learning that it was actually her mother's from 1987! You can't help but tear up watching her mother help het into the dress. What a beautiful memory for both of them to share.

From The Bride:

The pair met at the University of Kentucky in Lexington and not only fell in love with each other but the city of Lexington too! Chris is from northern Kentucky and Courtney is from southern Illinois, so being that most people would have to travel regardless of location, they decided to plan a destination wedding in our favorite place in the world, Destin, Florida! The wedding weekend was full of surprises, including Hurricane Hermine, but the day went off without a hitch! Courtney wore her mother’s wedding dress, which was so incredibly special to both of them!

Cinematographer: Theory Y Design

Dress: Bride’s mother’s Dress – worn in 1987

Photographer: Sarah and Paul Photography

Planner: Christen Cowgill

Reception Venue: Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
