I Heart... Brides [Updated with a Key]

I am truly a romantic at heart, and I love a good wedding! And every once in a while I run into a wedding party when I am traveling. Once in Japan I was invited to crash a wedding by the bride's rather inebriated father! It was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. So, today as wedding season quickly approaches, I pay homage to a few of the brides I've snapped...

In Piazza della Signoria (Florence)...
 
In the American Baptist Church in Rome...
  
On the Campidoglio in Rome...
In front of Ghiberti's doors in Florence...

  
In front of the Pantheon in Rome...
In Faribault, Minnesota... yes, that's me!
  
Near Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome...
In Big Horn, Wyoming... 
  
 And once again on the Campidoglio in Rome... 
Now, a quick quiz:  one of the photos in this group is from MY wedding.  Can you guess which one?  Leave a comment below!  
Updated:  Thanks to all of you who played along! Ciao!
PS:  All next week we'll be cruising.  Make sure you stop by on Monday for the launch of Italy Cruise Week... 
Thanks to all of you who are visiting 
Ciao!

Awww! Very romantic! I couldn't help but smile! I guess your wedding photo is the second to last.

I love weddings! How beautiful, I think the last shot is from your wedding!

Love seeing all of the beautiful brides and unique settings....hope you will eventually share where they were all taken. My favorite is the bride-on-bike shot!

Wanderluster said...

I think you might be on the bike :-)

I love that you've taken all of these photos. I have one of a couple in Vietnam on a motorbike - it's queued up in my Photo Friday drafts for the future but I think it's the only one I've ever taken.

Nice documenting on your part!

Jennifer said...

#6 or #8 would be my guess! Love the pictures!

Dominique said...

Bride-on-a-bike is my favorite shot, too!

Photo Friday - Behind the Scenes

Loving these photos! I'm always dreaming of renewing my vows in the various places we visit - an italian wedding dress? thai flowers? french pastry? I can't decide...

I'm guessing that the second to last is you.

Hi Angela!! Love the pictures. While scrolling through the photos, I see the bride with the kids and I thought, "Gee, that looks like Angela" so of course, my vote goes to that shot.

Monna said...

Angela,
This is a fantastic collection of wedding shots. I think I spied one or two Italian weddings... and I think your wedding is photo number 6. Thanks for sharing!

What a great post idea! I also like to snap bride pictures and today I took a bunch of quinceanera photos in a park near Phoenix.

I'm going to guess 7. I think it looks like you maybe?

Angela K. Nickerson said...

Wow! Jennifer, CarolynT and Monna all guessed correctly! My photo is #6. We were married 10 years ago in Faribault, Minnesota on the grounds of the boarding school where I was teaching at the time.

Thanks to all for stopping by! Ciao!

What a fun theme for photo Friday! A delight to scroll through the photos - I chuckled at the flower girls in Rome.
