Imagine a beautiful bride, handsome groom, an outdoor wedding, thunderstorms with torrential rain and a motorcycle get away vehicle. RIGHT! That is exactly what I was thinking that afternoon when I photographed Shauna and Chris's wedding. How is this going to work?
Apparently, I was the only one worried about this because both Shauna and Chris seemed thrilled to be getting married and ignored the obvious impediments. So I packed up a dozen umbrellas and called Shauna to meet me under the MOPAQ bridge along with her wedding party for pre-ceremonial pictures. She did. We did. The results were beautiful soft pictures with a surreal mossy background. Who would have thought this possible standing on the only dry surface under a highway bridge. But it worked. And everyone stayed dry. At least for the moment.
The ceremony was a little trickier. Fortunately, the rain paused for about 10 minutes while friends and family gathered around under umbrellas while Shauna and Chris recited their vows and committed to a life of love together. It was very sweet and intimate. And then it rained - hard - sending everyone running for shelter inside the Clubhouse. Again, Shauna and Chris were unfazed. They danced in the rain to their hearts content and later departed on Chris's motorcycle. AMAZING!
Thank you Shauna and Chris for letting me be apart of this heart felt event and for being such amazing people.
