We all know what a pain it can be to spend an otherwise lovely afternoon in the company of your dweeb cousins. She got the plum assignment of flower girl and was very excited until she realized that she had to work alongside her cousin… it just went downhill from there. This moment was one of several where she had to hang with him and keep her dress clean, waiting for the ceremony to start.
These are the little moments I live for… anything that can tug at your inner child and send you rocketing back to the scratchy dress and the patent leather shoes and all of the other injustices in a young life. Weddings are full of moments… some are grand and some are small but they all count.
I am lucky in my job!
There were bridesmaids scattered all through this sunny little house… all of them in various stages of getting ready. In this room, Jac, the bride, was helping her flower girl check her fancy new hairdo before they got dressed. The transformation from girl next door to stunning bride comes at you pretty fast… it’s the best part of the getting ready pictures. Makeup and hair are already done, the dress is hanging nearby like a promise and the excitement is high. Jac slept in this little house down the road from the ceremony site the night before… she confessed that she had to move her dress where she couldn’t see it… she could not sleep in the same room with it. When her ladies were dressed, they all gathered in one of the bedrooms to help her into that dress… holding her breath, she turned to the mirror and the look on her face said it all… it was perfect!
The only minor glitch was that her flower girl really preferred her Crocs to the glittery pair of sandals… that took some sweet talking. ;0)
Come see me if you’d like to talk about your wedding plans… there are so many wonderful ways to go about it!
