What a perfect wedding. I was a little nervous about the weather, I even went umbrella shopping the day before. Erin and Chris planned an outdoor ceremony at Piedmont Park’s Park Tavern. The weather read that morning “Showers in the morning, then a period of strong thunderstorms in the afternoon. Storms may produce large hail and strong winds. Tornadoes possible.” I don’t know how but the weather held. The overcast light was a photographer’s dream. A few minutes after we went inside the tent for the reception it poured. It is almost like the weather held off just for Erin and Chris to have their ceremony and a few pictures outside. When we were off taking the couple shots at the park a small rainbow appeared in the distance. It was perfect.
Erin is one of the only people I have met in my life who can laugh and cry simultaneously. She did this, lots, all throughout the wedding. You could feel the love and compassion from her and her family throughout the room. She kept saying things like “what did I do to deserve such a perfect day”. I have only known Erin for a little while but in the short time I have gotten to know a great deal about her. She is a wonderful person with a very large heart. She works closely with Teach for America (http://www.teachforamerica.org/) which is an organization that helps to put an end to educational inequality. She always has a smile on her face and a laugh to share. If there is such a thing as karma, I think I have a pretty good idea why Erin had such a perfect day.
