'If He Be Married, My Grave is Like To Be My Wedding Bed'


The BF and I have a thing for old graveyards.  We'll pull over if we see a particularly creepy one and just walk through the tombs for a visit and read the dates on headstones.  Our weird way of getting a bit of history but also it's so sad sometimes to see a whole family buried side by side and to read the inscription of 'beloved daughter, 1821-1822'  There were so many headstones that read that way.

So we took out the camera and decided to pay homage to the dead.

By the way, first gave you guys a glimpse of this dress here.  Don't really wear it that much though because it's sooooo delicate!
























What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Free People
Hat: JCrew
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Bracelets: Tiffany's, JCrew
Necklace:  All Saints
Pin It

  41. I kind of like to walk through graveyards, too! Mr. A and I want to do a shoot like this when it starts to get really cold outside. I feel like it has an interesting atmosphere for a shoot, and it's a nice way to recognize those who have passed.

  46. That dress is very delicate indeed and georgous. OK, some of those poses towards the end with the whole graveyard background are looking very ghostly and making my hair stand.
    Love the color play on some of those photos too.
    Very high quality and unique.

  53. I totally understand the allure of graveyards. It's something in the morbid and sinister that attracts me, and I guess humans in general. What a stunning series of pictures and that is dress is just too gorgeous :D!

    graveyards are sad place sometimes so true. When you wrote about 'beloved daughter 1821-1822' I've remebered a grave I do always see when visit a graveyard - a little boy's grave where do always lay a stuffed toy (usually pandas)
