Joyce, Douglas, Larry, Virginia, Melissa, Robin, Laura, Teresa, Dawn and Janine: I am overwhelmed by all of your very generous comments!! What a treat to read them! THANK YOU so much! This wasn't an actual wedding. I had dressed up my daughter and was doing some portrait practice. She loves "helping" mommy with her photography :o)

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS, Susana! This one was a real eye-catcher!
(I thought that I commented on this as a finalist but didn't see it! Guess I didn't...but I did notice it and meant to comment ~ Maybe I can plead "it's the thought that mattered.")
