Beautiful Wife

 
They are from a culture in which there are many arranged marriages.

I hope the proud husband thanked his parents profusely.

With a bit of luck, it was love at first sight...

Beautiful woman with a lovely red dress. I've taught several students whose parents were in arranged marriages. Stable families and academically sound kids. Perhaps an answer to divorce rates? Cannot imagine Westerners being content with that kind of arrangement.

And did you offer to photograph them together?

She's lovely indeed. I hope she is as happy as she is lovely.

Dawn said...

Sweet.
(And I'm with brattcat;))

joo said...

She is beautiful indeed, and the place is so wonderful!
Hope they'll be happy!

She is a beautiful woman. Let's hope their match is a happy one!

Re your comments: I think the striking must come from the French influence on Canada. And there are Starbucks here. I do go there sometimes, but it's not always convenient.

Lynette said...

You've captured a very special moment, Jack. Thanks for sharing.

Sharon said...

Such a gorgeous photo! I bet they would like this one as much as the one he is taking!

Jacob said...

I wonder if she feels that same way or is she thinking, "I wish this moron would get it over with!"?

One wonders. I'm not sure why I was called a blockhead. It could be 'cause I am one, but you have to understand that she is feeling no pain these days and tends to get a little verbose with a plethora of nonsensical comments.

Actually, I think she thinks I'm Charlie Brown and she's Lucy! :-)

But she's a sweetie, anyway!

What a great shot and what a beautiful woman she is! Like some of the others, I hope she is as happy as she is lovely! Have a great day, Jack!

Pretty photo and girl. I hope they both feel lucky.

Maybe they moved here to escape the culture of arranged marriages so they could make their own decisions.

On second thought, maybe for young people in the late teens and early 20's, perhaps parents have better judgment. I better stop my stream of consciousness right now. I am about to get myself into trouble.

Jacob said...

So, to get to a subject of ultimate importance: How's your golf game?

Malyss said...

I hope she can think and feel the same...

Lois said...

I wonder who got the best end of that deal. She is beautiful!

RedPat said...

Hopefully he looks as nice as she does!

Leif Hagen said...

A wonderful photo of a photographer photographing his lovely bride!

JM said...

Yes, she looks beautiful and I hope that they will do (or have done) just what they really
want(ed) to.

EG Wow said...

They both look happy, Jack. :)

Oh, by the way, I hear arranged marriages are more popular in North America than they are in Asia. India in particular is much more modern...except in the countryside.

Cildemer said...

Simply wonderful! The woman and your pic too!
Thanks for sharing, Jack;o)

He knows how to pick a perfect spot for a photo of her.

Randy said...

Nice shot. She is lovely.

Farmchick said...

A true beauty in life...a rare thing.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Yup he looks like one very lucky man Jack, let's hope he's a nice guy and they are very happy together.

VP said...

Difficult to disagree...

Gunn said...

I hope they will have a long life filled with LOVE, and remember to work as a team.

If I said my initial observation when looking at the picture, I'd bring the level down a little;-) So I'll say yes, pretty woman. Maybe he's taking her shot for her match.com ad.
