The Wedding of Emily and Taylor

My oldest friend got married to the man of her dreams last weekend, and I couldn't help but share some images I took at their wedding, which was a very traditional Episcopalian ceremony. It's rare that I'm truly moved during wedding ceremonies, but I found myself choked up during the reading of Corinthians 13, which feels trite in NSRV translations but profound in the KJV, and during their incredible minister's sermon, which was just beautiful. Now Roger and I are thinking of joining the church. The traditions and translations felt perfectly matched to their personalities, and the simple reception with friends and family that followed was relaxed and such a blast.






Emily and her beautiful mother, Mia, the first woman I knew who wrote poetry.

Emily made their incredibly delicious cake the day before the wedding, and wrote about the experience here: http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/story/life/2014/08/19/wedding-cakes-baking-diy/14303051/. She's completely right - sometimes homemade is absolutely perfect.

Cake!

Hula-hooping!

Best wishes for a long and healthy life together, Emily and Taylor! I see many years of joy and love in your futures!
