Little J in Her Mommy's Wedding Dress

What little girl doesn’t love playing dress up?  And the most coveted dress to play with of all time is of course your mother’s wedding gown.  Little J’s parents are Virginia Tech alumni, they returned to Blacksburg to compete in the Hokie Half Marathon and realized it was also the perfect opportunity to have photos taken!  They were married at War Memorial Chapel so I photographed Little J inside and on top of the Chapel at the Pylons.  It was freezing cold and she couldn’t even walk because her tiny frame could not maneuver in all of the beautiful layers of the gown, but the sparkle never left her eyes and the smile never left her face.  After all, it isn’t every day you get to wear your mama’s wedding dress at the very place where your parents tied the knot.  So sweet!
