I recently commented to Margaret and Todd that if their wedding day was any indicator, their marriage was going to be off-the-charts fun. And I meant it: these two are wild about each other, thrive off each others’ laughter, and are against-all-odds committed to turning every lemon they encounter into the most succulent of lemonades.
So, when overcast skies gave way to rain – right in the middle of their family and wedding party photos – they donned their biggest smiles, passed around adorable (and matching, I might add) grey umbrellas, and kept going. They might have hoped for sun, but you’d never know it, looking at the images below. And although it meant a wet hour or so for this photographer,* I have to admit they’re some of my favorite images in the bunch. Besides, what’s a little rain on the happiest day of your life?
(Fast forward to immediately following the ceremony, and you’ll notice they were rewarded for their waterlogged adventure: the evening light on the porch, where we shot a few more photos of the newlyweds, was sublime. So was the pig roast that we enjoyed right afterwards. Mmm.)
Marriage is about picking your battles, taking everything in stride, and doing so with grace, good humor, and loads of affection. Knowing how to throw a raging party doesn’t hurt either, and Margaret and Todd will have no issues in that department (wink). No doubt you’ll delight in the photos of the dance madness that ensued after the pig roast…I sure did. Enjoy! xo
*Many thanks to my umbrella-toting, mind-reading, amazing second shooter for this wedding – Julius Morgan! I would have been soaked through and through if it wasn’t for his diligence, and that’s to say nothing of the lovely images he added to M+T’s wedding album. Kudos!
