A Bride’s Story

I was asked by a family member to photograph their wedding this weekend. It was a beautiful wedding and fun to be a part of. One thing I really wanted to do was tell the story of the bride. Obviously I wasn’t getting ready with my wife on our wedding day so I had no idea what to expect. Holy crap, being a bride is stressful! Here’s what I found out they do.

Apparently they roll out of bed and head to the chapel. I’m guessing there is more to it than that, but I was getting my camera gear ready at that point.

They have their picture taken.

They get interviewed by CNN. Well, not really, but someone who works for CNN.

They kick me out of the dressing room and tell me when I can come back. When I return, things have changed. Time is of the essence and the bridal quarters have become more of a command center and Houston has a problem.

They do their own makeup.

They try a variety of approaches to putting on their veils.

3rd time’s a charm.

They laugh when there is mention of a Zombie Apocalypse during the vows.

They pray.

They are tended to before their photos.

They pose for photos.

They are whisked away in foreign car.

They smile as they arrive to cheers at the reception.

They throw their bouquet.

They dance with their dad.

And they have a good guy that supports them the entire way. Have a great honeymoon!
