Rain Not Ruining This Wedding!
Amazing what the right attitude can make when Mother Nature doesn't cooperate fully with your wedding day weather. Hats off to Caroline & John who were married Saturday, September 21st, at Keswick Vineyards. Caroline & John did all the right things to guarantee good weather for their wedding day. They did the old Southern tradition of burying a bottle of Jack Daniels, upside down, exactly a month before your wedding day for good luck. They even took it a step further and went to Kentucky to get their bottle of Jack Daniels and had it engraved! What could go wrong???? Well, their wedding day came and obviously Mother Nature was an issue for us. Everyone watched closing on dozens of radar projections trying to figure out what would be happening at 4:00. Radar was showing that the rain was going to change to a drizzle around that time so Caroline made the decision that she was determined to have her ceremony outside, even if it was raining. So, with that, everyone got to work in setting up the ceremony and having umbrellas for everyone. Caroline looked amazing in her wedding dress. She was just beaming with joy the entire day. You could feel the excitement between John and Caroline when John first saw her coming down the aisle. The ceremony was just beautiful with the fog in the background covering the mountains. After the ceremony guests enjoyed themselves under the Sperry tent for cocktail hour and the reception. No one seemed to be bothered by the weather. What amazed me the most at the end of the evening was the attitude Caroline had. Her and John were such good sports when it came to taking photo's. They even went out that evening in the rain to have a photo taken highlighting the rain drops. At the end of the evening Caroline said, "If it wasn't for the rain, I would of never gotten these amazing photo's". What a great way to look at the positive side of having it rain on your wedding day. If only there were more brides like Caroline!
