Moments {of Embrace}

A lot of hugging occurs on a wedding day. There are embraces between old friends and embraces between new acquaintances. There are embraces between family and embraces between the two people who on that day say their vows.

So far, in the Moments series, we have looked at Moments {of Laughter} and {Stolen} Moments, and today I wanted to focus on the sweet and joyous Moments {of Embrace}.



E & C- Alison Portis Photography

I couldn't resist including this last photo from our wedding since I love the memory of that moment. We chose to see each other before the ceremony (considering we were already legally married, I figured it couldn't be too bad of luck,) and I loved getting this brief quiet moment with E in an otherwise hectic and non-stop day.

These pictures are beautiful and make me want to retake my wedding pictures. I wonder if I could still fit in my dress, it's only been 12 years and 3 babies....

Beautiful pictures, they are crushingly heartwarming. Any woman in love could still fit in your dress.

The huz and I did the courthouse elopement too, then had the big wedding a year later---at the time I thought I was the only person in the world who did it that way, but since then I've learned that so many people have done it like that!

We don't have any hugging photos---I think because we were afraid my dress would fall off if we did anything too strenuous--but we have lots of good smooching shots.

Love these pics!
