Congratulations to Brooke Hynds Mackin, who celebrated her wedding on August 15, 2009. She was the third bride to wear this gorgeous wedding gown, the other two being…
- Brooke’s mother Cindy Timanus Hynds on May 12, 1979
- Brooke’s grandmother Evelyn Galucci Timanus on August 24, 1947
The wedding gown was originally made by Evelyn’s sister-in-law, Mary Gallucci, who, according to the family, was like a mother to Evelyn. When Evelyn was 13 years old, she found a photograph of this dress in a magazine, clipped it out, and asked Mary to make it for her future wedding day. Mary made the dress without a pattern.
Here is Brooke in her gown, which looks virtually as new as it did 62 years ago:
