When I arrived at the getting ready room, Erica was flitting about without a care in the world. Her hair was beautiful, makeup done, sipping a drink and seeming to be the most calm bride in the world. She was blushing with anticipation of the day to come. Even in her seemingly euphoric state, she was still on top of things. Handing me two very carefully packed boxes with all the special things she wished to have photographed and memorialized from the day. As I went thru the pieces, I loved seeing the little piece of history in a special handbag, and the carefully chosen perfume. And that her roses…were LAVENDER. All of these pieces were her, and her history. These pieces embody the reason I love photographing details. Preserving little pieces of person and their history.
As I photographed the details, David made his way thru and I could see on his face the excitement! When I hugged him and began to share in his excitement, you could see him light up.
He had waited long enough to marry the girl of his dreams!
The Ceremony began. The guests were all seated, and the music played. The groomsmen lined up, and the bridesmaids walked in one by one looking beautiful in the perfectly chosen shade of purple. The day was cool, but the sun shone down to make it a beautiful scenic view on ranch. Then she appeared. Thru the glass doors walked Erica. She was stunning.
As she appeared, David wiped a tear from his eyes. His brother reached over to squeeze his shoulder, as if to say “the wait is over, here she comes. you picked a good one brother” and for a moment, the two locked eyes and it seemed like the world disappeared. You could see the nervous fall off of David. He didn’t care who was watching him, he just wanted to be married to the love of his life.
And just like that, a kiss was exchanged and they were husband an wife! Coming back down the aisle, eager to celebrate with their friends and family!
