My prom was this past Thursday night and it was so much fun. I loved it! Here are some photos from the night:

My date Ray and me. My dress is the “Simply Sweetheart” gown by Nicole Miller from Rent the Runway. It cast rays of light around the room as I danced and made me feel like I was on the red carpet!

We exchanged the corsage and the boutonniere outside. They were beautiful!

Who knew these were so tricky to pin on?

A close-up of the dress, the corsage, and my great-grandmother’s opal ring.

Just a few of the couples lined up in the traditional prom pose. We had an enormous crowd, so it was tough to get everyone to smile and look in the same direction at the same time.

We posed in my friend Sophie‘s backyard. (Go check out her music – she’s incredible!) Believe it or not, this group doesn’t even represent everyone who was there for prom pictures. The final head count topped out at 44.

What a fun night! Today is the last day I’m taking submissions for my virtual prom photo party. Want to participate?

  1. Email your glamorous, red carpet-worthy, funny, painfully outdated prom photos to hannahorenstein (at) yahoo (dot) com.
  2. In a few sentences, tell us about your look!
  3. Make sure to include your name (and the name of the dress wearer, if it’s someone other than yourself), the year, and a link to your blog or website if you have one.
  4. Spread the word! Share the contest with your friends through Facebook, Twitter, and your own blog.

I’ve received some amazing submissions, but I’d love to see a few more! Happy prom season!

xoxo Hannah

    You look fantastic! Not many people can pull off the full-sequined dress, but it looks stunning on you. It’s nice to see a blogger actually feature Rent the Runway. I’ve heard a lot about it, but was never up for trying it…it’s definitely a site I’m going to consider using in the future.

    I can’t wait to see the results of the prom photo party! It’s a fantastic idea, and I’m sure the collection of images will be beautiful.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment.
    I think that you need to write more on this issue, it might not be a taboo
    subject but generally people don’t speak about
    such topics. To the next! All the best!!
