For the first time, this weekend my wife and I shot a wedding for someone other than family. A learning experience, for sure....but overall, we, and more importantly, the client, were pleased. There were more than a few surprises, including moving the arch backwards in a small chapel to the point that at times I looked like one of the groomsmen. Another surprise was a special song the father of the bride slipped to the guy running the sound system, prompting tears from the bride

The justice of the peace performing the ceremony forgot an important point, "You may now kiss the bride." After an awkward silence, one of the bridesmaids shouted, "Kiss the girl!"....a laugh....and normality was restored

The wedding was held in a rustic chapel in the woods...truly a beautiful setting. However,a brutal North wind nearly proved to be the undoing of the bride as her dress turned into a sail, nearly knocking her off her feet. A new sister-in-law, though, came to the rescue

At the rehearsal the evening before, there was a truly beautiful sunset. Fortunately, both my wife and I shot it. The day of the wedding didn't produce a repeat, but, with a little processing.....

And, finally, a selective color edit

They're all wonderful, but I especially like #3, with the bride being surprised by the wind. And I'd love to be able to insert a background as skillfully as you did with the sunset!
