This picture is from my cousin Eva’s Wedding day back east in Pennsylvania. My California daughters, upon seeing the fountain in the front yard, stripped down naked and began a hearty session of water play.
Naturally I was mortified, but it was family, and highly entertaining, and nobody was bugging but me. So I let go and took that adorable snap. I really think kids make a wedding day more complete. Take this photo for instance.
The professional photographer By Cherry captured this moment with Dillard my baker. Dillard looks very happy! And lookie here at this little lady. There was a chicken coop in the back of the yard at this wedding that was very compelling for the youngsters and kept them very busy – who doesn’t love a little barnyard?
Now I understand your fear – this could happen. But that’s OK! A wedding is about love, community, celebration and family. A whiny baby or sassy toddler adds delightful flavor and diversity to the mix and if you’re not having a black tie affair, let the wee ones come, you’ll be glad you did. Someday soon my sweet bride and groom, you may want to bring your own.
