Weddings are celebrations; accompanied by happiness and laughter. We celebrate them in vastly different ways, bound by culture and tradition. Groups of friends assemble for the first time in years. Tears stream down the faces of individuals who don't cry...ever. Just for a short time, our minds drift away from the constant worries of everyday life.
Vows will be said and rings exchanged. Rehearsed speeches are suddenly subject to last minute changes. Food is enjoyed. Introverts find their way to the dance floor. Old friends accompany each other on the hunt for a fresh cocktail. Laughter goes long into the night. Long dormant memories are brought back to life through stories and photos. Photos lock us in time, preserving beauty, age and fashion. Photographs prove our existence.
