I love holding my honeys hand and find that it is almost always in mine when we walk together. I constantly find myself drawn to hands, without even being aware that I’m photographing them until I pull the images off my memory card and onto my computer. So many of the images are surprises to me and I find they are the ones I’m most drawn to in the end.
Matt + Mike had a special space in their wedding ceremony to honor hands. I loved that.
These are the words that were spoken by the Pastor:
These are the hands of your best friend,full of love for you, that are holdingyours on your wedding day.
These are the hands that willwork alongside yours,as together you build your future.
These are the hands that will passionately love and cherish you,through all the years.
These are the hands that willcook for you when you are hungry,and clean the giant mess after.
These are the hands that willsupport you with unspoken tenderness.
These are the hands that willhold you for comfort and tickle you for joy.
These are the hands that willgive you strength when you need it.
These are the hands that willwipe the tears from your eyes;tears of sorrow and tears of joy.
These are the hands that,even when wrinkled and aged,will still be reaching for yours.
