When I photographed Michelle and Sean’s engagement session last Winter I had one burning question for these astute scholars of language and grammer, “How do you properly use the semicolon?” I am a friend of the “long dash”; I sprinkle it around my writing; I’m caught constantly peppering just about every paragraph with it.
Dictionary.com says, “A semicolon is used to separate two parts of a sentence that have a relationship to each other in terms of meaning when each part could stand alone as a sentence in its own right.” Is this not a great metaphor for these two? And lets hope that I’m using that word correctly.
Michelle and Sean were married; Holy Cross was the backdrop for their incredible wedding ceremony; Lord Thompson Manor pulled out all the stops for an elegant reception where the crowd danced the night away; a super moon appeared just for good measure. [I’m sure run-on sentences are still a no-no but you get the idea]
Check this out: Many thanks to my awesome second camera: Chris Gagne and the staff at Lord Thompson Manor. Brick Park had them movin’ and groovin’ until the very end. Michelle’s wedding gown was by Mikaella and her hair and makeup were done by Lindsey Quaglia. All the calligraphy was done by the bride’s Mom!
