We met on the internet, and on our first date we bonded over our shared love of all things nerdy, Marvel, Disney, and theme parks. We always wanted to make the wedding uniquely ours. Nerdy but classy!
I basically told the gals at RMINE that I wanted a dress that “looked like a unicorn sneezed on it.” And they whipped out their paint brushes, and worked into the night, until the store smelled of fresh paint and their floors looked like a unicorn had been slaughtered on them. And they gave me this beauty!

My husband, Anindeep, and I came to our tenth wedding anniversary very much different people than we were so long ago, now personally and emotionally more enriched. We decided a vow renewal was necessary to celebrate ourselves in this new chapter in realizing our individual selves and expressing our togetherness more meaningfully to each other.
Photography (duh) and fashion are priorities for me, so with NO attire budget and exponentially growing dressmaking skills, I suddenly found the confidence to alter my own wedding gown.
My rainbow dress was DIY: I bought a cheap Mori Lee dress & a strip of rainbow organza off eBay, then I cut bits I didn’t like off — and sewed then the rainbow under the lace.
After my divorce, I had this dress in my wardrobe that fitted me perfectly but that I couldn’t wear, and that I couldn’t bring myself to give away. In some ways, I felt like this dress was stopping me from moving on with my life. So I decided to reclaim my wedding dress.
I’ve been having regrets about getting a white (well, ivory) dress. Even if it’s beautiful and vintage-y and I love it. It was just feeling too traditional-ish. So I’ve changed out the gazillion white buttons in the back for custom hot-pink ones that I found on Etsy!
