Laughing at the altar at Northside UMC


Here's the second in our series of couples' favorite photos. Taylor and John Pafford chose this photograph taken by Sharon McMahon. Sharon was hiding in a side door behind the altar at Northside United Methodist Church when she saw and snapped this fun moment. Minister makes bride and groom laugh

Here's Taylor's explanation of why she and John chose this photo as their favorite.

This is our favorite wedding photo because it captures a genuinely funny moment towards the end of the ceremony. Following our vows, exchanging of the rings, and communion, Dr. Gil (our officiant) spoke to us privately, so that the congregation could not hear. He said how much he loved us and cared for us. He told us that he would pray for us as we began this journey together. Then, he looked at Taylor and said, "You look absolutely stunning." Then, he turned to John and said, "John, you look....well... I know you tried."

We thought that was such a funny moment and were thankful for a moment of humor to begin our lives as husband and wife!
