Photographic Memory

September 7, 2008

It’s official: the wedding pictures are up for viewing on their own web site.

Here are my bride and me, in the church…


… and on our way …


… into the sunset.


The entire album is worth viewing — our intrepid team of photographers, led by the redoubtable John Fitzpatrick, are excellent at what they do!

And yes, the sky really did look like that.

    Hi John & Ana:

    Thanks so much for sharing these gorgeous pictures with us. We would have loved to have been there to share such a special moment with you.

    It is so wonderful to see two people so wanting to get married and share their lives and hearts together.

    See you in a couple of months.

    Blessings, Art & Terry

    Thanks, all! “Great pictures” from Gilles is high praise (the man is a masterful photographer himself).

    And for those who don’t know, Azim is coauthor of a wonderful book (just out) entitled The Power of Giving — highly recommended reading! (And giving.)

    John, These are absolutely stunning pictures. And I think the best wedding photos I’ve ever seen. I expect to see the photo spread in Vanity Fair in a few months.

    Congratulations to both of you. And I appreciate your sharing them with me.
    Warm regards, Harvey
