The Perfect Marriage
When I found this sweet pair at my favorite shop, I just had to take them home. Many years ago, I'm sure they sat atop a sweet wedding cake. Sadly, over the years, the groom lost his head, quite literally, for his bride. He was lovingly repaired and looks nearly perfect. I really enjoyed photographing them. I turned them this way and that way and snapped so many pictures. They seemd to enjoy the attention after all these years of sitting in a dusty china cabinet. They filled my heart with joy as I looked upon their round little faces. I wonder what the original bride and groom are doing today. I like to think that they are holding hands still and have weathered life's storms together. I'm sure that these two little cuties have some stories to share. Don't you wish they could talk! I am in the process of creating some greeting cards using photos of this adorable bride and groom. Be watching my etsy shop!
