Wedding party with bouquets and cigars at Albers Mill

Why do bridesmaids all get something to hold (bouquets) but the groomsmen don't? I think the cigars that each of these guys is holding help make the photo. We let everyone hold their "props" in non-symmetrical positions to make the photo a little more natural-looking. We shot this portrait in the shade of the Albers Mill Apartments, which is a repurposed flour mill next door to the Museum of Glass that has some great metal, glass and brick textures to work with. On a hot, sunny day like this one, shade makes for a wise portrait location both for the even light and for everyone's personal comfort!
