Wedding party on Aviles Street

A bride and her bridesmaids standing in the shadows along Aviles Street, St. Augustine, FloridaJust as we were exiting a dress shop on Aviles Street, we turned to see a bride and her bridesmaids standing in the shadows.  As we attempted to snap picture, the bride turned around and smiled that charming smile — not really a giddy smile, just a hopeful one — and I thanked her for being there because the scene made our day. We just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary, we told her, so we wish you a long life together.  The whole party smiled.

And then we looked right past the young women to see the groomsmen posing for the photographer as they cast long shadows on this oldest street in America.  Made our day again!
