It’s 3:13 am and I just deleted the finished blog. Recently, so many things happened and not all of them positive. That’s why the whole text was deleted because I realized during my reading that it was too personal and too depressing. So I’ll take at least the cheerful part, our last wedding, and start over again.
I admit that I do not know how long Hanka and Michal know each other, but I know that I know Michal longer than I know Paja, and I still remember the days when I copied the protocols from him, letting Michal to explain me in few minutes before the test what I was should had honestly studied for a few hours, and to this day I do not understand how it is possible that we were at the end of our studies together with a red diploma in front of the auditorium full of people. If anyone ever told me that I will shoot his wedding in 8 years, I would laugh and knock on my forehead. However, eight years is gone and during the whole wedding a lot of memories were running thought my head, what things happened during those years, how brutally fast it ran away and how we got to where we are now. Pája says I take these issues really personal, and it’s true, but this time it got me completely, all of a sudden it’s all over my head, and in combination with the events of the last few days, I realized how much we have lost over the years. In the morning, during the preparations at Hanka, I was told that to be prepared for a lot of tears, but no one would have imagine that the tear would drop to me as well… and it happened.
So, this was really personal wedding for me. But I don`t want you to make a wrong picture in your mind – I definitely did not stand in the corner and did not think about what we have ever done wrong and what promises we have given that we will never be able to fulfill. Even though it was still my head, the reality was the wedding – looking for light, capturing moments, watching everything around, enjoying the great atmosphere, discovering ways how to make small children laugh, and ways how to explain to adults that I will not bark on them as I did on the children 🙂 and also be careful not to slip my feet in the water and don`t drown the camera. Not to mention that I wanted to enjoy the whole wedding, because it really was worth it. Hanka was beautiful and although there was a slight nervousness in the morning, it was nothing to spoil the mood. Although weather was not perfect, we were lucky it did not rain like on a lot of other places. Basically, everything went out well and we even managed to make one beautiful surprise for the bride in the evening, which we did not know until the last moment if it would work. So what to should I say more? We left shortly before the 2am in the morning, happy that it had all worked. In recent years, we are not very lucky to go to the wedding of our friends and this was nice exception, and we are really glad we were there. I assume that you two will also read this, so once again from us (and especially from me), enjoy it, be happy and be still here for each other.
For rest of you – have a great time, enjoy the day, go out, take your partner, your children, visit families and your loved ones, go to see your friends and enjoy life every day.
And now, not surprisingly, a little sneak peak – that’s how it looked like during 18 hours we had been with them.
