It’s actually a bit strange but I generally feel happy when I see a groom cry. I think perhaps part of it is the fact that I can immediately emotionally connect with that person, but I suspect it’s mostly because we live in a world that tells men they shouldn’t cry and I don’t agree with these notion of how they men “should” be. I absolutely respect ones who are, most simply, who they are, laid bare for all to see with no pretence of what they are expected to be.
Weddings should always be honest, they should be celebrations of love, commitment and honour to each other and Sean offers all of these things to Jenny and more. I saw a single tear of joy roll down his right cheek the moment Jenny walked down the aisle and it was just one of those things that needed to be captured. In all honesty, it was such a beautiful moment that I would have preferred to just watch his smile and Jenny’s tears as she approached him waiting at the front of the room in front of their loved ones. Jenny and Sean will forever remember that instant they set eyes on each other on their wedding day and I’m happy that I not only got to share in it, but I captured it for them to relive each and every day for the rest of their lives.
