The bride who loved her wedding dress so much she took it on a world-wide photo shoot

If you're anything like us, you still love your wedding dress so much, you wish you could wear it a hundred times, wherever you go in the world. One woman actually did that -- and we're obsessed with the results.

Jeff and Jennifer Salvage got married years ago on Easter Island -- a location choice, the groom told Mashable, was intended to guarantee spectacular photos. The next day, they traveled all around the island, taking photos of Jennifer in the dress in various places, at various times of day.

And then the idea really got rolling. They next went to China, photographing Jennifer in her Maggie Sottero gown to so much public fawning they were encouraged to keep going, according to Mashable. Inspired, the couple has since traveled around the world, taking photos of the one-time bride in her dress all over the globe -- and documenting the work on the blog One Dress, One Woman, One World. Yes, the gown is worse for the wear -- in the best possible way.

Now they've even got a book out, by the same name of the blog, which shows the gown in 85 locations across six continents, and includes the bride's first-hand accounts. (Hello, amazing shower or anniversary gift!)

The whole mind-blowingly perfect concept is a great match for the couple, with Jennifer an avid traveler and outdoors woman (she was the first woman to thru hike the International Appalachian Trail alone!) and Jeff is a self-trained photographer.
