My Son's Wonderful Wedding--Best Day Ever!

Aside from the day he was born, my son's wedding really was one of the best days of our lives. It was October 20th and there was wind and rain, but it held off for us in time to get some beautiful pictures.  From a photographer's point of view, not having to deal with bright overhead sun and shadows was a real bonus. That overcast sky was actually perfect lighting.

Why am I making a big deal about the pictures? Well, a friend recently told me that the only thing that you really get to take away from a wedding and the reception, etc, is the pictures. Now that I've been through it myself, I'd have to agree. Getting everything together for the wedding is both fun and stressful (so much work, so many details, and I was only the mother of the groom!), but when it's over, it's over. Everything is dismantled and the magic is gone, except for in the pictures.

In case you're wondering, yes, the wedding (and a couple of other things) derailed writing my story pretty badly, but I am slowly getting back to it. And I'm glad. I've missed it. I recently took a writing class from the magnificent Ali Cross about how to plot via the Save the Cat method and I'm super stoked. It gave me a direction and confidence.

In the meantime, I'm going to savor some of these lovely pictures:)

Aww, beautiful people. Katie took her mom's vintage 80's wedding gown and made it her own, thanks to my niece, a very talented seamstress and alterations expert.

Aww, dancing. I love the movement of her veil and dress here.

Acting all grown-up for pics was kind of a challenge. They're really just a couple of goofballs, which I love!

My son has always thought that he's a super hero;) Here he is fending off the wind for his bride.

At the wedding luncheon. I'm glad he still likes his ma so well. Does my heart good to know that I can be a part of their lives. As the mother of all sons, it's very exciting to have a daughter-in-law.
