We have a bajillion beautiful, fun, and creative images of the two of us but this one is our favorite. Initially, I loved it because it reflects both exactly how we were feeling as well as who we are as a couple in general. The stressful parts of the wedding planning, logistics, etc were finally over and we were about to have possibly the best evening of our (non-parent) life. I had the good kind of butterflies and you can see them. Also, I was trying to give him a kiss while walking and I'm not the most graceful person (especially in a heavy dress) and he was supporting my weight with his arm so I didn't fall. He holds me constantly. When I was pregnant, it was almost creepy. I'm just that clumsy.
I ASSUME HE MADE A JOKE BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE DO - HE'S SILLY AND I LAUGH AT HIM. I LOVE HOW OUR EYES ARE CLOSED. I LOVE THE MOVEMENT. I LOVE HOW IT WAS COMPLETELY SPONTANEOUS.
Looking back, its meaning has grown even more over time. My daughters ask me about why I'm smiling and I love to tell them.
