They laughed, they cried

This is one of my favorite images from Suzanne and Maciej’s recent wedding. There were others that were more beautiful or technically impressive but this one just cracked me up.

During the reception, the bridesmaids put on a slideshow of Maciej and Suzanne’s short lives (they are young, after all.) The bride and broom bawled all the way through it while the Polish grandma laughed and laughed. That’s the bride to the left of grandma, crying and trying to keep it together.

This photo seemed to exemplify the warm mix of generations and cultures in the basement of a restaurant in the heart of Little Italy.
