grooms.

grooms.

by socially-defined nature, grooms have been considered the second most important part of the wedding day.. it takes two to marry, right? so why do grooms always get second place on the wedding day? i blame it on my rebellious nature, but i love grooms on their wedding day. watching the wedding day through groom’s eyes is a template for a romance novel. believe me, the definition of a romantic man comes in a variety of colors. and in my job, i am honored to say that i am able to witness love and romance coming from any type of man…goofy, serious, tall, short, thin, thick, loud, quiet, etc.

that being said, i totally got distracted had a little fun and blogged some of my favorite “groom” moments. enjoy, sir!
