Photos: Jess & Jim Wedding

On October 2, 2004, my friend Jessica married her groom Jim. :)

The wedding took over a YMCA camp in RI. The ceremony took place in a natural amphitheater. Here, Jessica's dad escorts her through the woods to the ceremony.

Here's a shot of the ceremony: the altar - framed by two arched saplings - the wedding guests, the string quartet on the right, and the bride and groom.

Jess and Jim decided to include a traditional Scottish wedding ceremony: their hands were bound to each other. The expression "tie the knot" comes from this ceremony.

I've never seen more emotion, simultaneous smiles and tears, from a bride and groom before.

Many of the wedding guests were LARPers. The reception hall overflowed with revelry and cheer.
