I'm a big Norman Rockwell fan. He painted fun slices of Americana, poignant moments off the beaten path. I feel our wedding photographer, the incomparable Amanda Smith, captured a Rockwellesque moment on 9-10-11, Teri and my wedding day. Amanda took a picture of my bride and I sitting on a bench outside an old farm house. We are straddling the bench, facing each other, about to kiss. Behind me, standing on the bench, is our flower girl, 3-year-old Cadence, covering her eyes, as if horrified by such a public display of affection. Teri used the picture to design our wedding thank you cards.
To me, it is the signature moment of our wedding. Norman Rockwell would have approved, then painted the scene.
