Something lighter for a change

July 23, 2008

I’ve been whining so much that I have to post something more positive for a change. Last weekend my little sister got married and here are some pictures from the wedding. I must say she was the most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen and how could she not have been, as she’s my sister 😉

Before the wedding I was ready to lock my parents away for all the fussing and panicing and nervousness they were spreading. Seriously, how can organizing a small (=60 guests) wedding turn normal people into such state? I said to them I was glad we got married by just the two of us and only had a small party for the family later on, because I wouldn’t have wanted to experience that fussing twice.

On the eve of the wedding my sister was still sewing her dress at 11PM and I dipped some 300 strawberries into chocolate. But I guess it was worth all the effort, because the party was awesome, relaxed, fun, beautiful. The weather was great despite the forecasts and food was excellent. Everything went smoothly and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. We even danced to Doors’ “Light my Fire” with my parents! The Groom’s 80-years old grandmother was among the last ones to leave at 2.30 AM after enjoying several glasses of whiskey 🙂

Me and my husband took all the photos; I concentrated on the official portraits (like the one above) and he took the most “action” photos. When I graduated from high school I wanted nothing so much than to become a photographer, as photographing was my biggest passion at the time. I didn’t get into the art schools and then later my vision of a dream job has changed many times; at the moment I dream of opening a flower shop. Nowadays I’m the photographer only at all family parties and on holidays, and I’ve also pulled my husband into this task. I think we did a pretty good job this time 🙂
