The Sound of Music, 1964 Technicolor musical starring a fresh-faced Julie Andrews has such a dramatic movie wedding! In a dark and shadowy abbey, wearing a dress that falls somewhere between nun’s habit and Princess Grace, Fraulein Maria ties the knot. A widowed dad marrying the nanny is a tired plot device nowadays. In this case, it’s the true story. And such a crazy one, what with singing families, runaway nuns and nazis, it would be hard to make this up.
We urge everyone to revisit this charming tale you may not have seen since childhood. But in case you don’t have that kind of time, don’t skip the wedding scene clip below, because we are living for that veil!!!
PS – if you’re itching to channel the Fraulein, or Liesel, check out this Pinterest board for options.
