A Wedding

I photographed a wedding yesterday. A friend's brother got married, and they needed an extra photographer to work with one they were already using (the bride-to-be's niece). The ceremony was at a beautiful cathedral in uptown Dallas.

I first met the "wedding men" at the groom-to-be's house at noon, and photographed them getting ready. They were having such a good time.

The GTB wasn't even nervous; he couldn't wait to get to the church and get married! He's shown here with a photograph of his mother and father at their wedding. Although his father passed away several years ago, you could tell that he was still very much with him during this important day of his life.

The first glimpse I had of the bride was through a beveled diamond-shaped piece of glass in the door of the cathedral's "getting ready" room. She looked like a fairy tale princess.

Her attendants were glowing, as well, and the entire room seemed filled with light.

The ceremony went on without a hitch, and in no time at all, they were man and wife.

There was a reception afterwards at the Museum of Biblical Art, which was a very cool venue.

Friends and family celebrated the event; the groom's sister sang "At Last," and the groom sang "The Way You Look Tonight" to his bride. I'm a sucker for that last's my favorite.

Cheers to the bride and groom!


  1. I'd like to see the 'other' photographer top those shots!!!

  2. Oh, Sister! You are too funny! I'm sure the other photographer, who is the bride's niece, got some really good shots. She did the more formal ones and the bridal party getting ready. I'm looking forward to seeing them.
