The minimal lighting of this photo elevates it like glasses raised for a toast. The newlyweds hoist their glasses from their stage while the three chandeliers mimic the arc of their arms and make a toast with flame-shaped bulbs instead of crystal. Everything plays a role here as though the photo itself was yet another lifted glass. In fact, indeed it was.
Sometimes taking a risk and backing up can really pay off- this picture is a nice sense of place photo as well as a nice moment.
Those flower petals mingled with rice - or is it the spray of champagne? - got my attention! But the true crowd pleaser are the smiles.
The color, the lighting and the moment all came together to create a really nice toast picture. Love the energy of this shot.
Iʼve always heard that a champagne bottle could be opened like this. And here it is with dramatic swoosh of the sword and small splash of bubbly springing forth. The cork, presumably, never had a chance to perform itʼs traditional pop and but leaves the scene with a new fanfare.
Wedding toasts often have more than their share of jovial moments but this fella is bringing down the house, The groomʼs expression, as compared to the brideʼs laughter and applause, indicates it must have been something particularly embarrassing or downright juicy about the erstwhile groom who can do little more than play the role of the lackey. Everything about this image is perfect.
