What exactly was it about this day…

Was it that one of my favorite tracks from Sigur Ros was being played as she walked down the steps to marry him? Was it something about the way he looked at her and held her? Was it the sweet vows and promises they made to each other? Was it the way they loved each other and everyone around them so wholeheartedly? How about the way their friends all talked about them as being their heroes and role models? But perhaps it was how she held her father’s photograph close to her heart throughout the day. I think it was all of that and more that made it impossible for me to hold back my tears as I captured memories for these two incredible people. I love them so much and I will never forget the gift they gave me of being able to tell their story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kambiz & Sara.
