Have you ever wondered why bridesmaids and groomsmen dress the same? The tradition began when Roman law required that the couple have 10 witnesses to make the wedding legal. Many of these witnesses dressed up the same to confuse the evil forces that might show up uninvited to the wedding. People during this time were very superstitious. Soon Europeans followed this same tradition. In many cases bridesmaids and groomsmen did have to defend the bride and groom from warriors and real-life criminals.
I think this wedding party looks like it could defend our recent June 11, 2011, wedding couple. We had the honor of capturing the memories of Angela and Skip's wedding day at The Virginia Cliffe Inn in Glen Allen, VA.
