Melissa Hoogenraad's search for her wedding dress

Mystery dress story shows a community cares: the search for a Brockville bride’s missing wedding dress

Photo, left, "supplied photo"

FROM ANNE EDGAR PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG, MARCH 2015 | Last week I got an unusual request, from a Brockville photographer I knew about a decade ago.  

The call went kinda like this; "Hi Anne – it’s Mark Oliver calling, do you remember me?  I have a strange request – I know of a bride who is searching for her wedding dress.  Her wedding was in 2003, and she recently opened the previously sealed dry cleaners box containing what she thought was her dress – only to discover the the dress inside was NOT HER wedding dress.  This bride is searching for the owner of the dress in the box – in hopes that that true owner of this dress might have hers.  Can you take a look at a photo of the mystery dress & let me know if you might remember this dress from 2003?”

So kind of a ‘switched at birth’ scenario, only this one is a ‘switched at the dry cleaners‘ version.  Truthfully my first reaction was ‘are you kidding?’  There is NO WAY I will remember a dress from 2003.  But for some reason I don’t truly understand myself – I am a bit obsessive about keeping ALL the work I have photographed these past 25 years, and so it was an easy task to go and pull the entire collection of images photographed in 2003.  Really not having any expectation that I would find the ‘mystery dress’ in my archive, I dove in to many hours of opening image files.  And eventually – there it was.  Or at least there was a dress that could be, might be. Full story...
