It was their wedding day.
The tiny Broadview apartment hummed with activity.
Breakfast dishes dried, air mattresses stowed, coffee drinkers back from new favorite place (Broadview Coffee), the last few place cards were folded, after a final late-night inspiration someone's (not saying who) vows were printing, camera lenses cleaned, water balloons were filled......

Fast forward ten years to the day, two of us arrived in person, although the rest were truly there in spirit. Calvin had found the perfect match and the day of "I do" was upon him. I often prefer to participate and not shoot so much when people who are important to me tie the knot. But we were helping each other out on this, and it was my honor to be documenting this day for them. Stuff like this is when the work is that food for the soul kind of thing. Documenting an important thing for important friends.
Little did I know.
First, to start the celebration among friends and family from across town and across the continent off right. Calvin and Anh-Thi style.
With water balloons and Hawaiian leis, of course.

I'd explain further but especially in this case, I think the photographs speak for themselves, don't you?
