This time of year you don’t think about days and days full of rain storms. That weather is more expected in March and April here in Virginia. This summer however we have had days and weeks full of rain. I would say we have had more rainy days than sunny at this point… at least it feels that way. On the day of Lindsey’s bridal portraits, weeks before the wedding, we were dodging rain drops and as we got close to the big day the weather report was calling for a high probability of thunderstorms on the day of Lindsey and Gary’s wedding. All the back up plans had been made, but Lindsey had dreamed of getting married among the grapevines and really didn’t want to have to move her ceremony inside. On the morning of the wedding the weather was calling for a 90% chance of thunderstorms during the hours of the wedding. While we were all trying to ensure Lindsey (and her sweet momma, who wanted so badly for the day to be perfect for her little girl) that the wedding would be amazing even if it was raining, we all had our fingers crossed that we could at least get through the ceremony before the storms rolled in. I started to get hopeful as we got closer and closer to the time of the wedding and the storm times seemed to continue to move back. The ceremony time rolled around and the rain had managed to hold off. We not only got through the ceremony without a drop of rain, we also got nearly through the entire wedding! Even full of clouds the sky was beautiful and the light was soft and bright. The stormy looking skies made for a dramatic and beautiful sunset.
This wedding was a photographer’s dream. The bride and groom are gorgeous, the location is beautiful, the decorations were amazing… It was just a spectacular day.
