  • I enjoyed seeing this thoughtful image with those golden highlights of champagne ready to lift in a toast to the bride and groom. I also liked the linear, panoramic view the windows brought to the table. The photographer’s use of the water outside was a good choice by giving us an uncluttered view of the event but enough cityscape to add interest and perspective. But, in the end, it’s that lovely champagne that brought “three cheers” to the photo.
