Jud, Kat and I were asked to join Petar and the wedding party at the photoshoot. We felt very honored. Petar is a professional photographer and asked his friend, also a professional photographer, to shoot the wedding party in an abandoned paper mill.
Very interesting, I think, and very artistic. Jud followed the photographer around and took digital pictures at each scene. I know, I was a little mortified at first but no one seemed to mind. Things like this are a little easier in Croatia. It had been pouring rain but the show went on...
Here are Petar and Jelena in front of some graffiti, which translated roughly to, "You make me so happy."
Here are the beautiful couple in the same setting. Jelena had the most elegant dress!
Kat got carried away with some great graffiti and ran off with the camera...
Here they are again. Notice Jelena's great red shoes peaking out.
This is the wedding party, which included the best man, Zoki, Petar's friend since kindergarten (and the kind person who transported us from Venice to Rijeka) and Tanya. She was a beautiful woman and lived in Dubar. Isn't that a "WOW" of a dress?
Even when it was raining, the light shone on our beautiful friends.
Jelena was getting pretty drippy by now but she was still smiling. If I could pick a work to describe her, I would say, "spirited."
This lovely couple, spunky, beautiful Jelena, and our kind, handsome Croatian son, Petar.
So much in love!
