Wedding snapshots

By no stretch of any imagination do I consider myself a “romantic.” In fact, I’d sooner admit that I possess no understanding of the idea of romance at all. I don’t say this, as a male, to suggest I’m uber masculine — in fact I might at times call myself a metro-sexual, using a mild sense of the word.

Yet during my sister-in-law’s recent wedding my mind mulled over the myriad aspects of the celebration, of married life. After it was all said and done three words came to mind: Wedding, simplicity, and relationship.

A few of the better snaphots I took as “Official Unoffical [candid] Photographer” at the wedding of Sarah Wahlgren (my sister-in-law) and Jon Anderson this past weekend:
