Ah, the all-important bridal gown. Much of a couple’s wedding day, from the décor to the dress code, can revolve around whatever gown the bride decides to wear. For that reason, we love a photo, like this one by Becca Borge, that can turn a bride’s dress from a mere frock into a piece of fashion art to be treasured over time.
