It’s sunset and a beach wedding has just begun. The groom is waiting by the water with anticipation. People around him are whispering soft words but he doesn’t really hear anything except the soft splash of the waves. The bride is about to begin her walk. Her heart aflutter with happiness. I’ve seem this many times, for years now, and the one of the things I love the most is when they first see each other. I will be talking to the groom when I first see the bride. I usually wait until she gets about halfway to us and then I have him turn to see her. I love to watch his face light up because most of the time he hasn’t seen her in her dress. For most men there is a look of awe and excitement, as they know the ceremony is about to begin. He’s been waiting for this moment for a long time and even though the groom seemed very relaxed on the inside he’s jumping up and down. When the bride first sees the groom she will blush, not from modesty but from excitement. She too has been waiting a long time for this moment and has made herself the most beautiful l she will ever look. Hours of preparation has gone into this one moment. Her makeup is perfect, her dress beautiful and her attitude is one of hope and happiness. When two people began a life together it is a joy to see. To watch their expressions is something I’ve been blessed with and I never get tired of it. I love it. I’m hoping I find you one day on the beach and I’m doing you’re wedding for you.
