chance meeting

chance meeting

In my never-ending quest for interesting flowers, I went to the Leu Gardens in Orlando recently. As I walked down to this lovely dock, I happened upon this beautiful woman in what appeared to be her wedding dress with her family. Turns out that she and her husband got married there – 11 years ago! They are Dutch citizens (coincidentally I actually speak some Dutch so that was fun) and had brought their young children on a family vacation to see where they had been married. Despite being totally unprepared to take portrait shots at near high noon, I took a few quick shots for them (with their camera and mine).

I love weird chance meetings like these. It was great to hear from her after she returned from the trip and I wish them many more years of happiness!
