Smiling brides touch foreheads at end of weddingWe had an inside connection to this same-sex wedding at the Japanese Pagoda in Point Defiance Park: the two brides are our across-the-alley neighbors! Plus, our oldest kids are in the same kindergarten class. We've been friends for a while, and had fun photographing their family-friendly wedding. This photo came from near the end of their wedding ceremony at the edge of the Japanese Garden, as they smiled and pressed their foreheads together. Their young daughter, whose hand you can see, had already inserted herself into the ceremony a while earlier.
