Before I get to the meat of today’s post, I want to touch on the weather aspect at your wedding. I mean, it can be a huge deal, and it can be stressful when you don’t have a tent and you are only expecting a 20% chance of rain. But as I mentioned in yesterdays post, it can happen and probably will.
As much as I hate to say it, there isn’t anything you can do about the weather. It has a mind of it’s own. Just accept that and have a backup plan in case it does decide to rain on your parade — literally. Rain on wedding days isn’t the end of the world. It’s not that big of a deal. You can actually get some amazing pictures under an umbrella that might be some of your favorite from the whole day. It might look like doom and gloom – see below – but alas, it turns out to be a pretty magical day.
Now that I have cleared that up! This shot above was taken as we were out doing bridal shots. My sister came and told me about the weather coming, and boy…did it come.
So, what do you do when you see that big black cloud of doom approaching? About you put a damper on your entire wedding day/plans?
You look freaked out; keep on drinking whatever is in that cup (where is that cup anyhow?), and take some awesome pictures with some awesome
ladies maids inside.
This is one of my favorite pictures with my maids. It was not staged, and I just love it. I don’t know how they caught these moments from us, but our photographers did, and I love them for it! All the maids, and myself look so happy!
This picture is the only picture we have with our officiant — my brother in law. Ready for a fun story? Jeremy (my husband, not the one pictured above), wanted to include my sisters husband (also named Jeremy — confused yet?) in our wedding somehow. I also wanted to include him and I thought it would be a great idea to have him marry us. I mean, why not? He knows us both very well and I knew that it would be really special to include him int hat way.
And it was! The ceremony, which short and sweet, was very meaningful. I am planning a post all about our ceremony and all the personal elements we included. If anyone is interested, I might even post our entire ceremony for everyone to see/read. You can use it as inspiration if you are thinking of having a family member, or a friend marry you. It really was one of the best decisions we made, and I am so happy that he accepted our offer 22 months ago.
And why not do-si-do around when you are getting married? I think my sister is trying to get me to forget that it’s raining outside — remember that black cloud? If you don’t, scroll up. It’s there.
After our first look, Jeremy and his men got their pictures taken together.
