The Story Behind That Picture:
"Suddenly, my daughter Caroline got married"

By: Thorsten Overgaard. September 22, 2016.

 

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

 

It was just yesterday she was sitting on the back seat of the car on our way to kindergarten.

In the beginning of this month family and friends gathered in our church in Florida to witness that Caroline and Chet got properly married.

I hadn't really thought about how to solve the problem of being the dad of the bride and the wedding photographer.

Thankfully my workshop student Alex Scott was present and did the official parts of the wedding.

I'll let the pictures speak.

Those of you who have been following my website for some years will be just as flabbergasted as I. What happened to my teenage daughter?.
