Groom kisses bride by gate to Thornewood Castle garden

We closed the heavy wood gates to the sunken garden of Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, Washington for this portrait of the bride and groom who got married there just a short time earlier. The old, weathered wood adds character that provides an interesting counterpoint to the clean, white detail of the bride's wedding dress, and the pose with her Army soldier groom is sweet and romantic.
