The music starts. The slow organ entrance music showcased in a thousand movies. The audience knows their cue. As one, they stand, turn, and sigh as the bride makes her entrance. She will remember this, her moment in the spotlight, for the rest of her life. It is a moment worthy of remembrance, a moment worthy of a portrait’s immortalization.
When she thinks back on this moment, she’ll remember the music, the sighs, the lights – possibly how itchy the dress was, or hoping some last minute safety-pin tailoring isn’t showing. She’ll remember the trouble her mother had getting the curls in her hair to stay, and that moment the maid of honor couldn’t find the veil. She will remember everything leading up to that magical entrance more clearly, and perhaps more fondly, than the entrance itself. What happens behind the scenes of any event if often the most touching and the most distinctive part of the day. Remember to capture these moments, because they will tell a story like no other.
