...There is joy in the presence of angels ..St. Luke 15: 10

Tasha and Doug got married on August 17th 2013 and I shot this candid shortly after they said their vows and were pronounced husband and wife...Their glowing faces testifies to their joy and happiness.

My husband used to work for Tasha's parents when they owned a grocery store, before he retired as their meat cutter...We felt honored to be invited to this beautiful wedding where the big church was packed with many guests...

Please read about Tasha's remarkable life and of her accident which left her paralyzed at the following link: She is truly an inspiration.

Thank you very much JanElle (Heather) for the spotlight on 3-28-2014...So appreciated!!!

Thank you also David de London for your nomination on 3-29-2014...Very appreciated!!!
