Oh my gracious!
Let me start with the opening of the gazebo allowing it's light to fall upon this beauty and accenting the delicate dress so beautifully! Love the darker vignette allowing the light to focus on her...letting her be the total attention. The colors are brilliant and I am sure she is VERY proud of this portrait. Love the flowers in her hand, the green stems compliments the green in the background...the shadows coming from the gazebo add such drama to this, creating such a brilliant bride photo!!
Wonderful brown wood work framing the portrait. Brilliant work accomplished!! WOW.... #482141

Everything has been mentioned but the train, and it is one more perfect placement! You and the bride should be extremely proud! #3016215
