A wedding, simply put is the ceremony that marks the union of two people in love. Simple? No, wedding these days have evolved not just from a glamorous event but to an expensive display of wealth. Don’t get me wrong, I love weddings and I enjoy taking wedding photographs. 😉 Like Kevin Doyle (not the footballer but the leading guy in 27 Dresses played by James Marsden), I think that there’s too much commercialism in it…well, which occassion doesn’t?
I agree though with Jane Nichol’s (Katherine Heigl in the same movie) view of weddings as sacred…I like garden and beach weddings at best (you probably know now I really enjoyed that movie).
When I was still single, some friends and I would arrange for making souvenirs, designing bouquets and picking out the most appropriate wedding decorations for other friends or friends’ friends who will tie the knot. Sort of wedding planners but not that pro. (lol)
My brother would tie the knot soon…his bride is the youngest and only girl in the family so I have reason to believe that it would be a grand event. I’ve signed myself as a secondary photographer, brother-in-law being the official one. Regardless of my mixed feelings about weddings, I’m really looking forward to seeing the minute details in it and let myself get lost to the beauty and magic that weddings bring for hopeful romantics like me.
