L'amour, L'amour Toujours L'amour.

I saw the movie "27 Dresses" this past weekend. Starring Katherine Heigl and James Marsden and directed by Anne Fletcher, "27 dresses" centers around Jane, (Heigl), a perennial bridal attendant whose own happy ending is nowhere in sight. Developments in the plot lead Jane in the direction of reexamining her "always a bridesmaid..." lifestyle. Ultimately, Kevin, (Marsden) wins her heart and they marry on the beach in the company of her twenty-seven bridesmaids. It's a fun movie! Definitely worth a look.

"27 dresses" has inspired me to bring you a glimpse at William Giancursio's art, as presented in his book, "Our Gay Wedding Day". This lyrical and fictitious book tells the story of a gay male couple who decide to get married. The amazing thing about this Most Excellent book, is that it is presented as a creative photo album. The special photo album was created in miniature using action figures and dolls. Countless hours of time went into building sets, making costumes and props and staging and shooting the photographs. Conceptually, "Our Gay Wedding Day", is a visual journal of gay culture and the natural order of things from a gay perspective: boys with boys and girls with girls. It provides the viewer with a refreshing sentiment regarding marriage. It's a fun book that is beautiful to look at.
