The Wedding – Emily & Nick Begin

Wedding tent

The Wedding Tent is ready.

Family and friends

Family and friends are assembling.

Emily and Nick

Emily and Nick join hands. The wedding ceremony is beautiful.

The bride and guests

The bride is hugging everyone. Everyone is hugging the bride. The cameras are rolling.

Photographers everywhere

Everyone had a camera and everyone was snapping away. Here is Christina photographing me photographing her. We are all wanting to capture this moment forever. I was reminded of a song from the delightful, satirical musical Little Mary Sunshine.  I was mis-remembering some of the lyrics of Every Little Nothing,  sung by the wise old woman character. My ‘ revised’ lyrics fit my mood.  Every little moment means a precious little moment/if we make it gay.   Every little moment means a precious little moment/but it cannot stay.   For every little moment has its moment/then it flies away.   Every little moment means a precious little moment/take it while you may.

Admiring family

Many branches of the family have gathered to admire the beautiful couple.

Cousins

Do you imagine they might be thinking of future weddings?

Wedding cake moment

An important wedding ritual. The wedding cake. The bride and groom fed each other daintily. Thank heaven.

Time to dance

Then let the dancing begin. Conga!

The Bride and Groom

The golden afternoon was drawing to a close, but the bride and groom walked across the meadow, perhaps thinking of all the precious little moments that await them, even as these fly away.

  • Wonderful photos! Makes me think of my own wedding 13 years ago (wow, can’t believe it’s so many years ;)

  • Pat

    Annette – I think every wedding reminds us of our own, however different or long ago it may have been.

  • Beautiful, Pat. All good wishes to the happy couple.

  • Between Bernstein/Sondheim’s “What a day, what a day for an Auto-da-Fé!” *and Lerner and Loewe’s “I’m getting Married in the Morning!” you’d think someone would come up with the music and lyrics for moments such as the one you’ve documented: a perfect day, a perfect wedding, a perfect couple. Thank you, Pat!
    *I realize an Auto da Fé is grim and ghastly, but the spirited chorus about the perfect nature of the day seems about right. And now I’ve got Frank Sinatra’s “Love and Marriage” going though my head ad nauseam…

    What a beautiful setting. Such fun…
