When Jordyn Jensen recently tied the knot with Dakota Cleverly in Boise, Idaho, she did it wearing the same gown her grandmother had worn at her own wedding back in 1962. And to make it even more special, the bride surprised her grandmother with the news the night of the rehearsal dinner and had special “first look” photos taken to capture the moment.
Penny Jensen had no idea her granddaughter even had her old wedding dress, so when she was called out of the rehearsal dinner, she was completely surprised when she saw Jordyn wearing her gown. The big reveal was an emotional moment and Jordyn had a photo of her grandmother wearing the same dress on her big day, which really brought back happy memories.
“I kind of blacked out for a second because it was such an emotional rollercoaster,” the happy bride says. “I finally went up and hugged her and she whispered in my ear, ‘I married my high school sweetheart in this dress and so will you.’”
