You would think with David’s last name, that they would be entitled to a sunny wedding day. Instead, their celebration was anything by dry. However, if there were a couple that could embrace a rainy wedding day, it is Brittany + David.
The rain was persistent. It swelled with the wind, banged at the windows, and soaked through her Jimmy Choos. With the cold mist sticking to her skin, Brittany walked up to David with the biggest smile on her face.
Their family and bridal party embraced the weather just as the bride and groom had. After all, they were there for them. It didn’t matter that the wind turned the umbrellas inside out or that their dresses had three inches of water soaking the bottom of their dresses.
When it was time to make a decision about the ceremony, Brittany was adamant that it be held outside. They loved the outdoors. They loved the rain. All they needed was each other. I fully expected all of the guests to watch from inside. However, everyone suited up with ponchos, borrowed umbrellas, and they huddled around the couple as they exchanged vows in the pouring rain. After they were pronounced, David chucked the umbrella over the groomsmen, pulled his wife in for a kiss, and everyone cheered. Magic. Pure magic.
The rain didn’t halt the party. Everyone, including Brittany’s grandparents, stayed on the dance floor until the bus pulled up to take the guests home. By far, it was one of the most special weddings I ever had the honor of photographing.
Special thanks to Lucy for helping me out with this day.
