Last week King and Andrea were married in a wonderful ceremony at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton. The weather could not have been better and the fall colors were at their zenith. But this wonderful environment could not outshine such a radiant couple as Andrea and King. One of my favorite aspects of their wedding was a traditional African-American broom jumping ceremony. Like most traditions, the history of its origin is a little fuzzy. Its significance comes from its use during the time of American slavery as a covert way for slaves to marry when it was illegal and forbidden for them to do so. Being able to photograph this celebration and remembrance was an honor for Kristin and myself.
This first shot is one of our favorites of the day, but since there were so many wonderful shots it is not the only one were smitten with.
