Weddings are full of moments that happen quickly but will last forever in memories.

The moment the bride and her father reach the end of the aisle and her groom gets his first glimpse of her.

The moment the bride’s father gives his daughter away to her future.

The moment the bride and her groom stand before their families and friends.

The moment the vows are exchanged followed by the rings.

The moment the couple lights their unity candle.

The moment they share their first kiss.

On a recent snowy day, I had the opportunity to photograph a winter wedding.

Julie and Andrew got married.

Before the guests arrived, there were plenty of moments behind the scenes which led to a beautiful ceremony at the Three Rivers Bible Church.

Julie was calm, beautiful and radiating happiness.

The ladies looked amazing in their pink gowns.

The guys didn’t complain a bit when I suggested we venture out into the snow even though it was very cold. Andy was looking forward to the day.

Julie had a few quiet moments in her bridal chamber to contemplate the day.

After the ceremony, Juile and Andrew had a few moments together before heading off to their reception at the UAW in Three Rivers. Their family had the place decorated like pros.

Julie and Andrew are one of those couples who radiate love and will without a doubt stand together through time. Congratulations to them both and to their families for a beautiful ceremony and reception.

Accessories Make the Outfit

Accessories are an important part of any outfit. When dressing up, a nice necklace or pair of earrings – simply stated – or extravagantly outrageous – each make a statement. Sometimes wearing no accessories at all can say a lot about one’s mood.

So, imagine my excitement when a friend tipped me off to the fact that I could work in hazardous conditions while still enjoying some classic feminine appeal. Who knew they made respirators in PINK.

Yes, folks. I am now the proud owner of a pink respirator. I would have also provided photos of myself actually working while donning said pink respirator, but the dust in the work zone was so fine and plentiful that I was concerned my camera would become damaged if I pulled it out.

So, I’ll leave you with this shot of myself giving my best model pose while wearing large pink head-gear.
