Weddings are unpredictable. You want them to be predictable, to know when everything is going to happen, and to have everything go off without a hitch. But there are always things you can’t control. Weather is one of those things. When I think of Kristen and Will, I will inevitably always think about weather. Last summer, we almost rescheduled their engagement photos due to the threat of strong thunderstorms that evening. We went for it though, and had a beautiful sunset over Casco Bay. On their wedding day a few weeks ago, the threat of rain appeared again, and this time we were not quite as lucky. Although, they say rain on your wedding day is the best luck you can have, so Kristen and Will are set for life. Their wedding was at Spring Meadows Golf Club in Gray, and they wanted an outdoor ceremony. It was a damp day, but in the moments before the ceremony, the skies were actually quite bright and the local radar showed showers in the distance. All seemed safe. The second Kristen began her walk down the aisle, the skies opened up and it poured. Poured.
This is when I realized how much I truly like Kristen and Will.
Instead of freaking out (like I would have if it were me!), Kristen and Will, and all of their amazing guests, laughed. They smiled, and laughed, and the show went on. It rained the entire ceremony, and cleared just in time for formals, leaving us with some beautiful light over the golf course.
Kristen and Will didn’t let the unpredictable get to them, and their wedding was truly what weddings should be about – their love for each other. Here are some of my favorites from this eventful and incredibly fun day.
