Courtney Smith Bridals / by Ally Willix

Courtney's dress is really special. It is the same dress that her mom and three of her aunts have worn before her. Her great-grandmother made the dress and on Saturday Courtney was the 5th woman in her family to be married in it. Isn't that an incredible legacy? It seems to be a rare occurrence these days for a bride to wear her mother's dress and it is amazing to me that so many women in Courtney's family have worn the same dress! What a beautiful family heirloom! I am so glad we spent an evening at the NC State Arboretum capturing how stunning Courtney looked as a bride in this special dress.  

Congratulations Courtney! You make such a beautiful bride!!
