Before I give you some description about this image itself, let me tell you a story about Kris, the groom. Kris was the chillest groom I have ever met. When I first arrived at the private residence for this wedding where I was supposed to cover the groom's prep, I was having a hard time looking for him. It took me a while to find out he was in a tent in the back of the forest. As I opened the tent zip to greet him, the first thing I saw was some beers. Then I thought to myself, "ok yep it's a typical groom's day. Then I saw some cigars, and a flat green TV with an Xbox right next to it. I kept looking up and saw a bong. Then finally I saw Kris standing right in front of me, "Hey man you wanna smoke?" That was the groom of the year, without even any introduction. We started talking and I soon realized he's a big guy also with a big heart. He may seem like the type of groom who does not care what is happening on the wedding day and just wants to get it over done with, but when I asked him, "so you think you going to cry when you see her later today?" He said, "oh yeah, I'm gonna cry like a mother fucker." He said his whole family treats any guests like their family. They are down to earth, but also very emotional at times. And I can certainly validate that. Not only did Kris tear at the first look, he also cry like a mother fucker at the ceremony. And this photo proves just how heart warming the whole family is. Kris' dad as the officiant of the ceremony made initial introduction telling us to pardon them because their family tend to get emotional. And that's exactly what happened. What you don't see outside of this frame was everybody was tearing for the love of two joint families together.
