Several weekends ago my friend Richard married the love of his life, Amanda. :)
I was honored, not only to attend and take part in the joy of their beautiful wedding, but I also had the pleasure of capturing the bride's preparation for her groom. :)
What is any bride without her dress? Hers was the Cinderella fairy tale, princess, dream-come-true dress that every little girl pines for with all the sparkles and lace, sequins and pearls.
Complete with the cutest little slippers. :)
Blue hydrangeas. Always a favorite for a wedding day.
And now we come to the nursery...where all the primping took place. :)
Enter the beautiful bride herself. :D
During the tedious process of getting her hair Just Perfect, she did one of her bridesmaid's nails. What a servant. :D
This cracks me up! They were fun. :D
Makeup time. :)
Richard. You have yourself a knock-out.
Aaaand, she finally got to put on that spectacular dress of hers. :)
She was pretty pumped. ;)
Amanda, dear, thank you so much for letting me give my opinion on what color bobby pins she should use on you and whether you should go with matte or shiny eyeshadow...letting me be 4 inches from your face as you put on your mascara as my camera was shuttering away...and most of all, thanks for letting me do my best to capture the fun moments as you became as pretty as could be for your man. I don't know about you but I certainly had a blast. ;)
I can tell that we are gonna be friends. :)
