you may kiss the bride...







the wedding photos are finished...
it was so much fun...
stressful and fast,
but cool to be on the outside
just watching for those moments
that i would want documented
if it was my wedding...

this wedding had so much emotion...
sadly, the bride's mother passed away recently
after a lengthy illness...
but she was still with them in mind and heart.
often members of the family were tearful,
as shown in the bottom picture above
as the bride read her speech...

and this, this photo tears at my heart...
the bride's father, helping the bride's little daughter
get ready to be flowergirl...
his wife's name tattooed on his hand...
breaks. my. heart.
with. sweetness.

and in the end, i have decided,
i like weddings...i like being
on the outside looking in,
i like being the quiet observer.

more pics available on my website

If I ever lose my mind and decide to get married, you can come up and shoot it, these are lovely. (That dress is stunning.)
