helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

American Gothic by Grant Wood from 1930

I don’t know what it is about American Gothic that I love so much… perhaps it’s that we studied it in-depth in my American Art History class (which was, by far, my favorite non-creative class I took in college, BTdub.) It really is an iconic work of art- I hope to see it in person some day! Something I really love is when photographers use their brides and grooms to do their own American Gothic adaptations- they make for some really interesting engagement and wedding images!

    I love these photos too and I love when couples today mimic the faces and the expressions of those in the “american Gothic” period… :)

    It’s so classic cool. I would like to take a pic like this but am afraid I wouldn’t be able to hold a serious face. I am awful at serious pictures. :)
