Here’s the pic in case anyone wants to look closer 😉 credits on the site above.

i think it makes for a cute pic, for sure, but definitely fits more in the TTD and less as a ‘traditional’ photo.

Oh my, I’d be so afraid they’d poop on my dress! I personally think that’s going a little far for unique shots, but hey, to each their own! You want chickens? You should have chickens.

I would never do that! Simply because I hate birds, I am slightly scared of them.  When I was young, my grandmother had chickens, and I was spurred.  Since then, I stay away lol

I would be afraid of bird poop as well.  Plus I have this slightly irrational fear that birds are going to peck me to death.

I wouldn’t hold chickens like that even if I was in sweatpants.

I did lots of crazy TTD like things on my wedding day (hiking, laying down on sappy tree branches, rolling around in the grass, jumping across rocks in a river)… but I’m a total tomboy and relished having my dress hang in tatters by the end of the night.  As it stands, it looks just like new… Sophia Tolli builds a sturdy dress!

I totally understand that the vast majority of women would not do what I did… nor would I encourage them to.

for some reason I was thinking they’d be baby chickens, which I totally would have done. Hubby and I are animal people and I would have LOVED including animals, even if it got my dress dirty.


On a totally unrelated note, that picture slightly under it, where the couple is on the yellow bike is SO CUTE! I love the cans on the back lol

Its an interesting picture. But I love my dress too much to do anything that could possibly harm it.

That picture just cracks me up for some reason. I think the chickens are a bit much…next the bride will be milking a cow…LOL

Chickens scare the crap out of me, (yes, I’m strange), but I actually think it’s a gorgeous photo. I’d love to have the guts to wrangle chickens in a wedding gown. lol

I saw that photo earlier today and had to laugh–as a country girl, all I’m thinking is “Does that girl realize that chickens poop, peck, scratch, and flap around?” Bleck! Might as well hug a cow while you’re at it.
