This day was filled to the brim with the unbridled joy and laughter of not just the happy couple (of course), but also their families and even yours truly, the photographers. Indeed, their happiness was just so contagious that I teared up a bit! (But, I quickly remembered that I needed to be able to see through the lens.) [ read more … ]
