Phil and Kristy couldn't have been a better personality fit for me as ideal wedding clients if they tried.
Their wedding day started off on a great foot when we meet up for on the Indian Trails Park Path to do their bride/bridal party & groom/groomsmen shots, rain was threating in the forecast but we had hoped to miss most of it until after the ceremony. But, by the time we were starting with the groom and his groomsmen grey skies were rolling in and soon we were rained out by a seriously heavy downpour, despite the fact that I brought enough umbrellas for the wedding party.
So the thing about rain, it's really NOT GREAT when you've planned an outdoor wedding that is supposed to start in 10 minutes! After it was apparent that the rain just wasn't going to let up, they decided to do a quick bit of rearranging and the ceremony was moved from the outdoor area to the reception hall inside The Landing. These two handled it like champs, while my assistant and I hurried to set up our lighting for indoor photos, and the people of The Landing got set up for an indoor ceremony. Other than the few minutes of "oh no, what are we going to do" everything flowed just like it was supposed to have happened that way.
We were able to sneak back outside shortly after their ceremony ended for some wedding party shots under the covered awning area and when the rain finally let up we headed out into the yard to finish up. The rest of their evening went on without a hitch with plenty of laughing and dancing. Such a great time celebrating these two as they started their new life as husband and wife!
