Couple always travels with wedding dress

(NBC) - A bride and her husband have taken a wedding dress and an idea across six continents and compiled a photo book capturing the entire journey.

The book was named, "One Dress, One Woman, One World."

Turns out, it was love at first sight. And what started as an exchanging of emails eventually led Jeff and Jennifer Salvage to exchange wedding vows on March 19, 2008.

"Everyone said you'll just know, and I had never felt that way until I met Jeff," Jennifer Salvage said.

Jennifer had no idea what she was in for when the couple married on Easter Island off the coast of South America.

"After the wedding, I said, 'You do know you are getting back into the wedding dress tomorrow cause the light wasn't perfect during our wedding,'' Jeff Salvage said.

Jeff, who is a computer science professor at Drexel University and a passionate part-time photographer, wanted the photos of his new bride to be just right.

He wanted shots of Jennifer at sunrise and sunset and various locations around the remote island.

"It's such a shame. You wear the dress once and that's it," Jennifer said.

That's when the couple, who loves to travel, got the idea, why not take the dress with them on their adventures?

The dress has traveled more than 100,000 miles through six continents, and it's faired pretty well. But because Jeff and Jennifer wanted to do some wild and crazy photo shoots, the dress company has given them backup wedding dresses.

But whether they are taking photos close to home or far away, the sky is the limit as they work on a second edition of their photo book and an excuse to never end their honeymoon.
