As I walked over to the Starbucks located on Monument Circle on Saturday,
I saw a group of well-dressed, attractive men (Woo hoo!)
waiting at the Monument's base. Since they were wearing boutonnieres,
I suspected (wiggle of eyebrows) that they formed the groom's
half of a wedding party.
When I looked across the street, I saw a line of identically
dressed women approaching, behind whom was the bride,
their make-up artists, and photographer.
Everyone smiled and chatted happily as they posed
for their pictures, attracting a few neighborly paparazzi
who, like me, made pictures of their own
to record the pretty occasion.
One of the more unusual features of this bride was the henna tattoos
that had been drawn on her arms and feet. I overheard her brother
explaining to some passers-by that, not only had the lines taken many hours
to draw, but that the bride had to wait another long while
for the artwork to dry, requiring help from her mother to eat, etc.
Among the photos taken, were some of the drawings made
on the bride's feet. Kudos to the photographer who was willing
to get down on the cold ground to record the beautiful art.
