The Longing

The longing for long-gone parents

Photos of both brides’ deceased parents were placed at the altar, so they could be with them when they were finally able to get married – after 23 years together. In a quiet moment before the ceremony they paid their respects – and were overcome with emotion.

The wedding took place at the groom’s childhood summer camp – and many of the groomsmen were his best buddies from that camp, so they were all pretty emotional throughout the ceremony. They took turns laughing, crying, passing tissues, and leaning on each other.

Taken with a Canon 5d Mark ii and Canon 35mm.
