Bride of Frankenstein.

On the terrace of the Orlando Science Center, overlooking the views of tree tops and downtown Orlando, friends and family sat in neat little rows of white chairs awaiting the entrance of the bride. Her groom and his mother, who would be officiating the ceremony, nervously waited while everyone flip-flopped in their seats, wondering what the next few minutes would bring. The music was cued, and the beautiful bride made her way down the small aisle to her husband-to-be. She was breathtaking. And the whole audience felt her glow.


Almost immediately she reached for his hand, like it was pure instinct. The ceremony started with a brief description of what these two are all about. Zombies. A short description of what their love’s trials and tribulations, strengths and weaknesses were all intertwined in this fantastic tale. After which, the traditional vows were exchanged.


And the moment everyone had been waiting for! The first kiss as husband and wife! With the sun making its way across the western sky, it was truly magic that we witnessed atop the terrace on the roof. As they made their way back down the aisle, friends and family wiped tears from their eyes and gathered their belongings to make their way to the reception.


The cupcakes that the bride herself had made would be the party favors for her guest at the end of the evening. In lieu of tradition, the newly married couple had requested no gifts but for means to assist them in a honeymoon or the purchase of a home. On the gift table was a tiny coffin, where the cards were placed, made by none other than the bride. Such a creative one she is!


The cake was covered in fruits and chocolate, tempting all the children who were led to the table to “take a look.” Each of their eyes lit up and their fingers reached for the frosting, stopping short just as their parents hands restricted them at the last second. The colors were red and black and the table had the couple’s champagne flutes covered in roses.


Time to cut the cake! As man and wife, the cutting of the cake symbolizes the first task that they perform as a unit. I would expect nothing less of these two but to thoroughly enjoy this moment. They turned the cake cutting experience into a fun and playful part of the evening, both giggling and flirting with the cake pieces in their hands.


I had such a great time at the wedding, I could hardly pick just a few of my favorites. I would like to thank Mike and Marie for inviting me to be a part of this most important day in their lives. We made many memories with you all on this night and can’t wait to hear the stories in the days ahead. Congratulations!

Oh my darling Jacqueline, let me count the ways….

…of how you make my life so much better! Of course I do not have enough fingers for such a task, but here are a few none-the-less. You are my inspiration, on a day to day basis and I find myself constantly striving to be better… for you. You make every task seem so easy, and every goal attainable. Without you in my life, I would not be whole. Thank you for always being there for me, for being patient and kind, and always creative. You are my sister and best friend.

You deserve the very best birthday wishes to come true!
Happy Birthday!

A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell where her influence stops. Henry Adams

My most amazing soon-to-be mother-in-law has been a second grade teacher for roughly thirty years. Over that time she’s gently molded the inquisitive minds of bitty eight year olds, taught them immortal life lessons and assisted these tiny people in finding their true potential. The significance of a wonderful teacher in our lifetime is fundamental by instilling in us a love of learning and nurturing the bright minds of similarly important vocations of tomorrow. Cyndi has invested so much in so many generations of children and I was greatly privileged when she asked for my assistance in one of her current end-of-the-year projects.


She’s presently in charge of planning the ideal retirement party for her charming eighty-plus year old assistant named Evie. In my time observing the ever-youthful Miss Evie I can assure you that her age is but a number as this kind-hearted lady was full of more vigor and enthusiasm than all of those second graders combined. She has spent most of the years at this school hustling between classes and grades always intently pushing book-loaded carts, contributing one-on-one time educating, loving and encouraging all of the students [and teachers] she’s come into contact with.



Upon meeting the “star” of my photography assignment, she had emphatically gathered both of my hands into hers, stared up at me with brilliant blue eyes and marveled over my profession and my induction into Cyndi’s family. I promptly learned that darling Evie passionately admires the art of photography as her father had once been a freelancing photographer when she was a girl, decades ago. She even admitted to possessing his albums of vintage snapshots, all delicately cared for and proudly displayed. In the few hours I spent in her company I genuinely knew that this precious “assistant” was more than that, she’s a beloved gem and I was honored to have become acquainted with her.


My assignment had been simple; I was to stealthily photograph Evie in her usual surroundings as well as capture her interactions within the classroom. What she ironically failed to relay in our conversation was that she was indeed extremely camera shy [who would have guessed that she had been the daughter of a distinguished photographer?], but Cyndi had fortunately cued me in. Comically, without having the slightest idea of my intentions Evie had vanished numerous times, only to return sunglasses in place and pep in her step.

For those of you who have been following along with us you’ve come to know that my heart belongs to my eight year old little brother, accordingly this age group had a way of enchanting me. They were eager to please and shared in my “super secret” of which Evie had not known [where to her understanding I had been around to photograph the kids]. I was given a break-dance performance and witnessed their clever antics, yet was even more amazed by Cyndi and Miss Evie’s patience and dedication.


I was dismissed having soaked in a life lesson of my own that day which the children chimed aloud. With assertively placed hands to their hearts they repeated that the most important gifts we can give are those “that come from the heart”. Those said “gifts from the heart” include the kinds which make our Mommy’s and Daddy’s cry even though we don’t understand why. ;-)


Yet unlike my eight year old peers I understood the impact of such souvenirs, images like these would be just that. They were special pieces of personalized fine art, depicting the invaluable contributions this soul has given to the school system. Evie will be truly and greatly missed, but her involvement and cultivation of these young minds will exist long after her retirement. That, I can promise without a doubt.

Thank you Miss Evie, you’re a true inspiration.
