Simone & Lyonel

“She put on her lace garters on her right leg, peacefully and blissfully sitting there like an angel. She knows the best thing in her life is about to come and she’s gonna live her life just as her wedding day.”
Wearing a bridal garter is a old tradition that many brides still keep today. It’s hidden underneath her wedding dress, waiting for the groom to retrieve it and toss it to all single men. Wearing a set of garters on either leg above her knee symbolizes luck that can be shared with all family and friends. It also represents the newlyweds consummating their marriage.
Today brides often wear a garter set that comes with two garters, one more embellished and fancy and the other more simple. They match in color and design, and the bride can choose to keep whichever one she wants and which to toss.
It’s always our style to capture every unique detail in each wedding. We know what we look for. Once we find it, we will definitely press the shutter and memorize it.
