Is bigger better?

I don't think so.....

This wedding took place in Asheville, NC
over 10 years ago.

It was a small, mostly family affair.
The Inn that hosted the wedding,
also took care of all the 
guests on this long sunny weekend.

The reception was a larger,
more formal function at the nearby
Grove Park Inn.

Everyone had traveled some distance to be there.
Some from as far away as Europe.
While small, it was very intimate,
filled with emotion, 
and sentimental.

This moment was just before
the guests were 
hustled into the room in which the wedding was to take 

The bride wanted the groom to see her 
just before,
so that he would not be overwhelmed.....
and neither would she.....

It worked.
The wedding was beautiful.
the reception was grand...
and everyone kept their composure intact.

This is the moment that defined this day....
at least for me.
