The Promise. That was the name of the song they danced to during their first dance as a married couple. The Warwick Melrose Hotel’s ballroom set a gilded, turn-of-the-20th century scene that something to behold. A decade of wedding photography often means few things surprise me. That’s part of why we are exceptional at what we do. We a re prepared and know what is coming and nothing is going to shake us. We are ready. Yet, in a good way, every now and then, I am surprised by an emotion during a wedding, and that is the case with Mowry wedding during their first dance. At first I thought it was Johnny Cash singing but no. Once the dance was over and the couple were taking a break I was so moved by the moment I had to ask who the singer was of the song. Sturgill Simpson. Go give it a listen and you’ll be as surprised as I was. It was a special moment to remember.
