Wedding photographer Monica Donovan, was awarded 1st place in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2009 BRIDES Magazine.
- It’s the picture of a traditional country wedding: the black-robed officiant, the neat green lawn, the pretty flower garden, the white picket fence—and that dress! Without showing the couple’s faces, Donovan’s simple, symmetrical composition contrasts this bride’s whimsical personal style with the solemnity of the marriage vows. Love this picture! It evokes a sense of nostalgia. The clothes and picket fence are reminiscent of a less complicated era.
