ABC News: LDS Bridesmaid Goes All Out in Hilarious Bridal Photo


"This is how I am currently feeling about wedding and engagement season coming up," Janessa James wrote as a caption on the February 3 post. "Yes, this is an actual photo of me (extremely single) helping my best friend with her bridals. The photographer asked me to throw her train up and then dive out of the shot, and so I did. Very theatrically."

Janessa James is the bridesmaid of the year. Or, she should be—if there were such an award.

The Brigham Young University senior, who has been in 12 weddings, earned that title thanks to her hometown friend and bride, Amy Lewis.

Before Lewis' Washington, D.C., wedding to her now husband, Riley, the bridal party trekked to Sundance, Utah, to take a few pre-wedding photos.

Amy Lewis really wanted "wind swept photos that looked super romantic," James recalled to ABC News.
