If you photograph weddings long enough you're bound to photograph some of your friends getting married. These become unforgettable and truly mean a lot.
My good friend Eric had let me know that he was going to be getting married in California to his now wife Maria and I was thrilled. I had met her and she was just wonderful. She was patient and warm and they truly had a wonderful relationship. So of course when he asked me I agreed. Living in Massachusetts I found it so exciting to be doing a wedding in California.
I've known Eric and his family now for almost 26 years from back when I was living in Maryland. We played soccer together and shared other interests as well. Around high school we went different paths, but we still stayed in touch.
The wedding was fantastic at a great venue and an amazing reception which her family had setup for the big day. I haven't been to a similar wedding since. But, maybe that's more of a Cali thing. In any case I'll always remember this beautiful wedding and how happy my friend Eric was to have found his soulmate in Maria.
Congrats again bro!!!
