The Amish get married on Tuesday or Thursday in November.   November is a slow month for farming so they have time for weddings.  There are often 300-400 guests at a wedding, most of them arriving in their buggy.

I love what you've done here, Steve!  A must click to get the full effect of the uncompressed view.

The perspective, composition and mood, with the fog and black and white conversion, all contribute to a beautiful and sensitive glimpse of an Amish wedding day.  This has that timeless quality so befitting their way of life.

+1. Carol perfectly summed up my thoughts.  Really a beautiful rendition of an Amish wedding. Very well done.

It's just lovely how you composed this with the second buggy between the trees and the misty environment. An evocative and charming photo that, for me, creates a nostalgic feeling for a simpler life, and the beauty of it.

Really an enchanting image, I love the black and white, the fog with the atmosphere it gives,
the perspective of the trees and in the background and in perspective the carriages with horses.
A wonderful evocative image. I love it!
