“The bride is here, so that must mean this is really happening!” Jeff says as he walks toward me in the church aisle. “This is it!” I reply back, chuckling at his comment. His excitement to be married to his bride was so obvious and touching. On most wedding days, Barry has more time than me to get to know and photograph the groom and groomsmen. On this particular day, I also had time to get to know the guys, and found their energy to be contagious!
As for Lauren and her ladies- what sweethearts! Upon entering their getting ready room, all of the bridesmaids took the time to introduce themselves to me, and Lauren immediately offered us something to drink. Lauren is such a classic and beautiful bride, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such crystal clear stunning blue eyes. Your jaw will drop when you see these pictures of her! And yes, that is the true and unaltered color of them!
It is hard for me to pick a favorite moment from Lauren and Jeff’s wedding day. Certainly, Jeff’s comment to me in the church aisle makes the list. Another is his face as he watches Lauren walk down the aisle, and having Lauren’s father give her away. Lastly, the special moment when Lauren hugs her grandfather as he rises from his wheelchair to dance with her. Ah- I just get happy tears in my eyes reliving that moment.
