Wedded Bliss




Tucked away on a rejuvenated downtown main street lies a hidden gem. Dubbed the 'Honeymoon Capital' Niagara Falls Ontario is a most appropriate spot for a Wedding Museum.


Having been treated to our own personal tour by its knowledgeable curator David Tetrault, I was intrigued to discover a collection of gowns and dresses chronologically displayed (from the mid 1800's to present day) for our viewing pleasure.


Each creation and accessory is artistically placed, enhancing the costumes that once draped the velvet-skinned shoulders, revealed the delicate waist and covered the trembling heartbeat of a young bride...

Such beautiful dresses and tiny too! Also, I didn't know that Niagara Falls is known as the 'Honeymoon Capital' ...
I love the two atmospheric photos of sheep in your last post - very evocative.

How beautiful! I was married in 1984 in a dress from about 1940, I think. I have been planning on blogging about how I found it, but haven't yet. You can see a pic of it in one of my July posts.
