The day before Heather + Carson’s gorgeous Ringling Museum Courtyard wedding, we had a few minutes with them in the hours before their rehearsal dinner.

It was a special night filled with special things, but the most beautiful part about the evening and the reason that we went out for some portraits, is because of the dress Heather is wearing in these images below.

Its her mothers.

It is her mothers wedding dress, re-purposed and made into a stunning white cocktail dress for Heather and Carson’s rehearsal dinner.

Heather’s mom had no idea. Here she is realizing for the first time that her beautiful daughter is wearing her wedding gown, all these years later.

Heather + Carson are a dream to photograph. No pressure you guys but have kids someday, ok. Because they’re going to be gorgeous and I’m going to be there.

    Cindy Toombs - Thank you so much for capturing these moments for us. These pictures of Heather in my dress still make me cry and yet laugh at the same time! What a surprise, I can’t believe she was able to keep it a secret! I can’t wait to see the next group. Cindy.
