THE VILLA DEL LAGO WEDDING

A million men can tell a woman she is beautiful, but the only time she’ll listen is when it’s said by the man she loves…

This glorious Easter Sunday is when I met this groom-to-be for the first time…and he was in nothing but his underwear.
Reminder to self: Give warning before entering a room, even if the door is wide open.
As he lent out his hand to introduce himself to me, he had this huge grin on his face making an awkward situation even more awkward. But I guess that with all the emotions one feels on a wedding day, ‘shame’ shouldn’t be one of them.

So the groom says to me…”I want you to take a picture of this one little detail, but it would require me to pull down my pants.  Would you be okay with that?”
He says this in front of all his groomsmen.
Yes, he opened up a big can of worms.
So I say back to him, “Well, being that I did meet you while you were still in your underwear (looking down at his pants) let’s see this little detail!”
The room filled with laughter by all of the groomsmen who were already cracking jokes of their own.
Oh!  And here’s the little detail (suspenders).  Ha!

This couple definately made it worth my while to spend my Easter Sunday with them.  Their wedding was held at a private waterfront estate called Villa Del Lago that overlooks Lake Travis and the place is seriously stunning!  And so was the bride!
