The minute the bride appeared on the boardwalk, half of the guests burst into tears. You can count the groom among the tearful. A groom with damp eyes is nothing new, grooms tear up all the time. But it is a special treat to see one so overcome with emotion. This is when I have to struggle the most to maintain my composure. Maybe it is being the mother of three boys, but I have to fight the urge to reach out and hug highly emotional grooms. It is so beautiful it makes my heart swell.
The weather held and we did not feel so much as a single rain drop. There was water up there somewhere, because towards the end of the wedding a gorgeous rainbow appeared over the ocean. Behind my back, but I got to see it when I turned around after the ceremony. I am sure Shannon was able to capture it. What a lovely symbol to appear at a wedding.
I will definitely be sharing those photos on my Facebook page when Shannon has the preview up on her Facebook page.
to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to
each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
