The first thing Faith did after Bob proposed to her was to find out if I was available to shoot their wedding – then she said “yes.” Of course I jest, but it was high on their priority list. Faith, you see, was the Mother of the Groom in one of my prior weddings. Her son married the very lovely Mary, who was originally from Peru. A Peruvian custom is to have the single ladies pull ribbons from the wedding cake, one of which has a ring attached. The lady who pulls the ringed ribbon is the next to get married – just like our bouquet toss. Guess who pulled the ribbon with the ring… And now, that very son will perform his mother’s wedding ceremony. It’s going to be an awesome reunion, and I can hardly wait!
We decided on a June engagement shoot downtown and finally out at Lake Murray. The steady breeze, and a great couple made the June heat vanish. A few photos from the day.
