Amanda is Married!

Amanda and Marc

This past Saturday, my oldest niece got married. I can't believe that she's married! Wasn't it just the other day that she was a baby that I took care of, carrying on my hip and getting her bottles of "mok" as she called milk. And wasn't she just a toddler that would ask for "cheput" (ketchup) on her eggs? Or a young girl who would become obsessed with The Little Mermaid, the color purple, and anime because her favorite aunt liked those things?? Wasn't she just graduating from high school and making her way to college? (Granted, this one was just over a year ago, but still....)

Between the two actual photographers and a very insistent family member who fancied themselves a photographer, I managed to snap this picture of the happy bride and her happy groom. My sis-in-law (Amanda's mother) came up to me and asked if I had taken any good picture of them that we could run to a photo place and get it printed and framed to place at the reception later that day. Lucky for her, I had, and instead, ran it home, did a soft filter to it and placed it in one of our frames. Amanda LOVED it, and so did the family.

So, after taking a quick look at iheartfaces today, I knew I had to enter this lovely picture, since this week it's about Smiles. It's my first time entering, and I don't think I'll win, but that's okay. I'm just glad I was able to capture her sweetness, her loveliness and her happiness. And that's what really matters. ^_^

The love and absolutely joy coming from their smiles is awesome! And I love that they aren't looking at you...
