Judges Comments

  • The bride and her bridesmaids catch a glimpse of the family arriving at Jasmine Plantation in Providence Forge, VA through a window in the Bridal Suite while getting ready.
  • Loved all of the different faces and their looks of anticipation. Nice job of layering and keeping an eye on everything in the frame, especially the woman in the background. The expressions really tell the story!
