In Memory of Adam Sellheim | Maris Ehlers Photography

When I took this picture on Raymond and Arianne's wedding day, I momentarily forgot that the groomsmen I asked to kiss the bride on the cheek was Arianne's brother, Adam.  We all had a chuckle, and I felt a bit silly.

Last Saturday, Adam drowned in a tragic accident on a lake in Minnesota.  One of 6 drownings that weekend, and his funeral was today.

These things are so hard to understand.  An entire family is heartbroken, and there is not anything that one can do, except to keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

As I pulled some of the pictures from their wedding that had Adam in them this past Monday for the family,  I saw this one and paused.  I am so grateful now that I had that moment of forgetfulness.

Life is short, my friends.  Make every moment count.

In memory:  Adam R. Sellheim, October 14, 1984 - July 31st, 2011

Thank you Maris.
I think this will forever be my favorite picture of that day.
