“Guys, you are amazing. The color of your skirt, Laura, matches perfectly with this light. Seeing you there, standing in front of me, is like looking at a painting. I would love you to act as you were alone, without me, looking at each other’s eyes. Try to feel the wind in your hair, the nature that surround you. Try to feel you two as a part of the landscape, and look at you loved one remembering how lucky you are to have found each other. “
