I was recently looking through all of Jackie & Jim’s wedding photos and, as usual, I stumbled across some hidden gems that I somehow had overlooked before. I love sharing the times that I experience through my camera, not only because the images are those that I love but also in hopes that they will bring you back to the moments you’ve experienced in your own life, or dream of those moments that are yet to come…
Imagine it’s your wedding day – you’ve spent the morning with your family and closest friends as you got your hair and make-up done, increasingly becoming excited that in just a few hours you will walk down that aisle and officially marry your best friend and soul mate. After a long morning of getting ready, the time comes. You finally get to the church and everyone sees you (minus the groom of course!). All eyes are on you in this moment and the reality finally sets in – you’re getting married! All of your friends and family gush over how beautiful you look, fighting over each other to give you a hug and tell you how gorgeous you are and how lucky your hubby-to-be is. Your mother-in-law to be gasps in the corner, though not out of surprise but because you look even more beautiful than she imagined. Grandma comes up and gives you a hug, and gently whispers in your ear something that only you and her will ever know. You hear ooh’s, ahh’s and camera clicks galore. Yes, you are getting married today.
This is the story that unfolded before my eyes as I watched Jackie enter the church before her wedding..
… and looking through Vasili’s photos, I’m so happy to see that at the same time Jim was getting paid extra attention to as well (as he was looking pretty fab too!).
