Photographer's Comment

It can be a long day for Bridesmaids. I stumbled across these two on my way to the bride who was changing into her traditional dress for the reception about to begin. The symmetry of the scene was immediately apparent to me, just perfect. They were both truly asleep and I took this photo quickly fearing they would awake at any minute, which they did not.
