There are so many people in the world with a lot of talent. There are writers, there are designers, there are photographers and there are wedding dress designers.
My September 1st release is titled The Little Black Wedding Dress.
I scoured Pinterest for wedding dresses that would fit the title. And I found the perfect one. Of course it was white, but the design was perfect.
I mean a little black wedding dress had to be short–just like a little black dress.
So, I have a friend who designs and makes wedding dresses. She made this dress in black. She found a model that resembled my heroine. She found a photographer. She found a church. (She’s a great friend, right?) I also have a friend who designs amazing flower arrangements. She made me 4 for this photo shoot.
So, off we went.
90+ degrees on an Atlanta evening. These gals were amazing! Here are a few photos I took. (These are in no way professional! These are from my phone.)
Here we have photographer, Kayla, Model Karli and dress designer Bekah.
Here is Karli—don’t you love the flowers, too?
Kayla is editing the images and I will send the “One” I want to my cover designer and she will work her creativeness into a beautiful cover. This was so much fun! And of course everyone will get a credit in the book. I love giving a shout out to the talent in my area.
Oh, did you know legend has it if you were married in a black wedding dress that meant you were pining away for a lost love. Can romance get any better than that?

That’s a lot of work to get a cover shot. You have AWESOME friends.
And I love that dress!

I’ve never heard of a black wedding dress & it’s interesting what it means….not a good thing when you are marrying your spouse that day….lol! Hopefully nobody is pining away for their lost love on their wedding day :-)
And I do love the design of that dress, it is very pretty! Professional or not, you took some great shots!
Lindi Peterson says
Thanks, Trixie–I just received the photos from Kayla–They are amazing. I’ll have a hard time picking just one.

I am anything, but traditional and I love the idea of a little black wedding dress. And it isn’t about the dress, right? I dismiss tradition, because tradition comes from man and God only cares what’s on the inside. Lindi (love your name, btw,) I wish you great success with your new book when it comes out.

Trixie—The only way it will work is if you are marrying your lost love. :) I can’t wait to see the photographer’s shots.
Terrill–Thanks for the shout-out about my name. :) And I loved the design as well. Bekah did a great job!
