The Beautiful Wedding, but First Some Existentialism

Mozart, muffins, weddings, existentialism. That’s what we do here at Wrong Side of the Camera. What can I say? We are a mixed bag.

Let’s get started. So I was in Chile for a wedding of two lovely people I know. They got married at the most insanely beautiful place of all time. Don’t believe me? Check out the photos:

Do you believe me now? Yeah. No exaggeration, but I actually felt that my life changed after I saw that view.

While I was on the top of that hill, so many thoughts were going through my mind. Somehow I did a lot of deep thinking on this trip. I started to think what had brought me up to that hill, the path I had followed, how I had gotten there. I thought about the fact that almost exactly six years ago, I was sitting in a cold conference room in New York being called “junk status” by the nefarious person I worked for at the time. I remember how I had walked out crying and swore I would never have another job again. And not to mention that I was worthless and incompetent. It was a long time ago, but I do sincerely hope that that person reads this blog because of the photo above and the ones below.

Why I got so suddenly philosophical, I don’t know but somehow it affirmed this belief in me that everything, no matter what happens will be OK. It will all be OK in the end and one day you will climb to the top of San Cristobal hill and go to the loveliest wedding.

Ah yes, the wedding. The wedding was at the top of San Cristobal hill, a BEAUTIFUL hill in Santiago that features a statue of a virgin and is surrounded by the city and beautiful vegetation.

And then the Beatles started playing and bride and groom entered. Before it all started, I snapped some photos of the attendees. They all looked interesting and I wanted to capture these new faces that looked so interesting and unique. And of course I had to capture the lovely couple:

And after there was insane wedding reception that featured the bride singing, tacos, quiz the gringos time, a video called “House of Vegans” (a parody of House of Cards), cat ears, stiff hipped gringo dancing and general mayhem.

Generally AWESOME:
