IF : Your Paradise, Color Study

Paradise_colorstudy
I've been thinking about this week's IF theme, "Your Paradise" and pardon me for falling into cheezy territory but I got stuck on a photo from my wedding day last year. Tomorrow is our 10 month anniversary so it's been on my mind I guess. It was definitely the happiest day of my life to date. And to top it all off, the weather was just perfect, clear blue skies, a light breeze, warm but not hot for August.

I never work from photos like this but I couldn't pass it up. I edited a tree out and added the flower details. It's challenging for me to work on adults in my style, but I need to dive into it. I wasn't as concerned with making us 'look' like us, more just a loose and stylized version of us. I had said the weeks and months leading up to the wedding when people asked about my dress (which my mother made) that I wanted to feel light and fluffy. Marshmellowy even. This is one of the photos that reminds me that I did feel like that. And I like that I'm not even looking at Kristian. Because I know he's right there standing next to me. :)
