Jumping for Joy

This was it---The happy couple and the even happier bride's brother, father-in-law, and best man behind them!

Before the wedding, we all went over to a park to have the photographer take some photos. This shot was his idea; I remained in the background, and copped a few of his set-up shots!


I must say that the wedding itself was FANTASTIC, from the ceremony itself, to the food, and the band. The latter was 'interrupted' at 10:30 p.m. by the arrival of the traditional Gypsy brass band (ooompa-ooompa) that played for a half an hour, then moseyed off.

Now, for 'Bibi,' that's "one down, one to go"! Bride's brother, if you're reading this...!

And the bride and groom (who can't see the exuberant folks behind them) think THEY'RE the stars of this photo!
This is such a wonderful shot, Bibi—everyone looks so happy (and SO beautiful, btw). I'm really happy for all of you (thanks for sharing!).

[And I love it that you kept with tradition & even had the Rom brass band!] What a grand time for all the wedding must have been. Much happiness to you and the newly wed couple. May your family always shine in the joy of this day.[Thank you for sharing this private moment with us.]

They all look so happy. Your daughter looks so beautiful. I'm glad you all had a fantastic day :)

If you're not the photographer at a wedding, the rule is to follow the photographer and shoot a variation of the scenes he/she sets up.

You followed that rule and did very well!

Funny!

Beautiful couple! And so glad that all went well...once more, we extend our best wishes to them for a long and happy life together.

So fun to see this happy day. It sounds like you all had a memorable and very enjoyable day together. And such a beautiful couple! Hey, they are actually my neighbors. Maybe I'll get to surprise you with a shot of them someday. :-) We would love to see a photo of the mother of the bride, BTW, or just a smidgen of the fabric you wore for the occasion.

Hah. Copping the hired help's set-up. -:)))

Congratulations, Bibi! All that planning is but a happy memory and overshadowed by the real thing! I actually considered flying over for this wedding ... but didn't act on that impulse. Would have been great fun to have been there to share, though.

I'm with Kim, by the way. How about a little photo of the MOB? Huh?

I look forward to your next visit to Seattle, though realize it will probably not be until next summer when you have time off. Perhaps I can look in on your daughter ... have intended to do so ...

Again, congratulations to you all!!
