A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to help Neysa photograph this incredible Macedonian wedding. When I photograph with Neysa, we have things down to an almost science. I photograph the guys getting ready, while she photographs the girls. Typically the guys are very calm and quiet, sitting around, and just relaxing. Not here. The "guys gathering spot" included a full party for all of the grooms relatives. It was like a reception before the reception and full of tradition.
Thanks to everyone for making me feel welcome. My best wishes go out to this amazing, beautiful couple.

a tradition... family members took turns "shaving" the groom (I think the belief is that the groom is too nervous to shave himself, so others do it for him)

I love the walking down the aisle shot. The reflection is great. I also love the one with the flower and everything else there in the background but blurred out nicely.
