Thanks, Linda... another Cafe friend! I just joined. It seems like a great place so far... I like that the contests do not allow names on the photos. I saw some familiar names there when I was there. Glad you're one of them! #3355214

Just as in a fairytale, the dull blue sky was exchanged for a surreal sunset sky, hence the fairytale tint to the rest of the photo was added to warm it up a bit. Warm yellow color was added to the lights on either side of the door and to the windows to simulate evening. It is, afterall, a fairytale wedding! Final image was sharpened in PS.
