Happy New Year!!

2014-12-31-TrashTheDressElizabethHoardPhotography223of319Five days before what was supposed to be Shelby Swink’s wedding, her fiancé informed her that he did not love her and that he did not want to get married. On the day when the nuptials were to take place, Shelby met up with her bridesmaids and parents and they covered her bridal gown with paint and glitter (and feathers?). Then she allowed the dress to be used to raise money to benefit needy people in Kenya and Uganda. I really love the fact that instead of dwelling on her own personal loss, which was huge and absolutely understandable, she transformed it to help others.
