Location: Madison, WI
Tina and Roberto were a young couple from my neighborhood who got married on our front lawn. (The apartment underneath mine is a church part of the time.) Everything seemed to be against this wedding- on the night before the original date, a car lost control and smashed through our building (a rude awakening!) and the wedding had to be delayed a week. When I found our that there was no photographer, I volunteered to take pictures. (I later regretted my decision; it was the hottest day of the summer, nearly 100* F). When I saw that Tina didn’t have any flowers, I ran upstairs to grab the silk pansies in my bedroom. The reception was a Mexican 3 milk cake (very yummy) and lemonade. I have attended some weddings that were huge bashes, more like a Hollywood production. Nothing compares to the sweetness of this little wedding; it was very moving. I am happy to report that they continue to be married and have 2 children.
PS- Tina cried when she saw got the photos.
