4-28-13 Weekly Photo Challenge #2 (Bridal Edition): Culture

As many of you know the weekly photo challenge this week is culture.  I took a shot at it two days ago which you can see here.

As many of you also know, yesterday was our anniversary. We are not big celebrators of the day – we figure we handled all the partying necessary at the wedding – but we do like small adventures to commemorate the years.

we decided to take a drive out to Long Island to the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay. It sustained some severe wind damage from Sandy but is still a truly beautiful place. What we didn’t know is that it seems to be one of the premiere locations on Long Island for  wedding photography.The arboretum was crawling with brides (and grooms). It seemed a fitting salute to our celebration. At the end of the day we drove to a little restaurant on the Cove and a wedding was happening next to the water. We watched for a few minutes and then went to the car. As we drove past the ceremony had just ended. We pulled over and congratulated them. Katherine told them it was our anniversary so we knew they were going to have a fine life and then we drove home.

What does that have to do with culture?  Take a look at the gallery and you tell me.

As always, a few other views to check out.
