The Joyful Beer

Right after the ceremony, the couple entered the van that would take them to the reception and demanded that the driver had to stop for them to get a cold beer. Obviously the driver was more than thrilled, we waited only a minute and he arrived bearing gifts, one for me including. I decided to focus the shot on the bottle and have both the bride and groom out of focus and was lucky enough to have capture a few melted ice particles flying in the air while the bride laughed for she was so happy to finally be able to fully relax with a cold beer in hand and her new husband by her side.

The bride was being walked down the aisle by her brother, which only added to the flood of emotions that her mother was feeling. As the mother of the bride breaks down, her mother embraces her and they share a moment.

I really love capturing moments like these. They are not scripted and they happen in an instant. Gotta be ready at all times.
