Journey of a Lifetime

Wendy Mutch's avatar Wendy Mutch

This wedding dress, made of recycled maps, symbolizes the paths that lead two people to make the trip down the aisle to that moment when they begin their life together. It also represents the adventures and challenges that they will face together in their joint future. I selected maps that have personal meaning to me, so Michigan is prominently featured throughout the dress. Every bride's wedding ensemble requires special accessories and the wooden shoes are a nod to my Dutch heritage.
