Rain on your wedding day. It’s supposed to be considered serendipitous, right? Oh, how I remember a wedding day based on the weather. Perhaps it’s true, I’m secretly an 80 year old in a 30ish year old body worrying about the weather every minute – at least on a wedding day. Amy + Charlie’s big day did start perfectly at the Chase Park Plaza, where both the ceremony and reception were held. That made it easy for a Plan B. Luckily, because Amy + Charlie did a “First Look” near the Chase, we were able to get portraits in before the deluge and winds began. There was a moment when one of the bridesmaids asked if we should take cover or worry because the weather.com app tornado warning beeping on her phone. I nervously made that EEEEeeee face where you suck in air. …but I think we kept shooting. Later, I heard all the customers at Whole Foods had to take cover in the storage freezers (or something like that!) Right as the ceremony began, the rain drops vanished and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky. Pretty surreal for guests to experience this on the rooftop of the Starlight Room!
Katie Saeger with Simply & Forever, the planner + designer, always puts on a well-organized, detail-filled day. I’m sure you will agree when you see the photos! This couple is really super cute together.We enjoy couples who are fun, kind and have the ability to just roll with it, including the weather. My favorite part of the evening – a choreographed diddy! I smiled the entire time as I was culling (photog term: sorting through photos).
Enjoy the photos!
