Every wedding day is special…Every wedding I have photographed has spoken to me in some special way for some special reason. Sometimes it is the connection I have made with the bride or groom leading up to the wedding. Sometimes it’s a special venue. Sometimes the other vendors that I get to work with. And sometimes like this wedding I have a connection to the bride or groom outside of the parameter of the wedding event itself. I’ve written on this blog before about what this wedding would mean to me. (See here), so I won’t rehash it here. But suffice to say the event was every thing I thought it would be, even if it did rain on our parade a little.
Here are some images to give you a feel for the day. It was yet another great event to attend and record. My string of great events will continue into 2014. Hope you enjoy the photos!
Every wedding day has its own set of challenges. There are just too many moving parts for the day to go off perfectly. Just too many things that are completely out of your control. And since we don’t live in southern California, the ultimate uncontrollable factor is the weather. No matter what decision you make, planning a wedding a year in advance means that the weather on your wedding day will be a roll of the dice. I watched the weather for Stephen and Lindsey for more that two weeks prior to their wedding. I knew that early November in our area brought the possibility of rain but I hoped that their wedding day would be spared. When it became evident to all that the weather was not going to cooperate, I expected to see some level of dejection from the wedding party. Thankfully I saw just the opposite!
