The Mother-of-the-bride

The Mother-of-the-bride, photographed by Shannon Finney, Alexandria, VA, January 2013

The pathway from newly engaged to walking down the aisle can be fraught -
packed with binders over-stuffed with details, and hours of planning. And
while good friends are there to assist, there is one member of the
wedding party who often takes on the Herculean task of project manager and
that's the mother-of-the-bride. She is catering manager, transportation
coordinator, and dresser. I snapped this photograph during a wedding
shoot and I love it because within it is the essence of the bond between mother
and daughter - the constancy of care no matter when and no matter what.
