The Bridesmaid Project: part three

Kristin Rae Oole

In today’s society, the fact that the wedding industry has become so very populated with big, elaborate and expensive wedding days is hard to ignore. The flowers, the hall, the caterer, the favors, the dress, the tuxes, the photographer, the cake, the entertainment… the list goes on and on. The amount of time, energy, and money put into these parties seems almost to take away from the true meaning of the day in the first place, LOVE.

Yet somehow, through all the planning (and the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into said planning), when the day finally comes, the wedding itself somehow manages to remind you what all of it was for. Watching the bride and groom say their vows, the way they look into each other’s eyes, how they hold each other during their first dance, reminds everyone that no matter how much or how little you put into the event, it all culminates into your desire to express your love for your partner.

Once again, special thanks to Shelly's Designs of Grand Rapids for the beautiful flowers.
