“They” say that when it rains at your wedding it means good luck. That should be true for Jeremy and Sarah then. The forecast was thunderstorms in the afternoon but it was sunny and nice when I arrived at the couple’s home. They had the backyard all decorated beautifully and set up for an outdoor wedding. The ceremony area had a lovely arch decorated with sunflowers.
Sarah looked gorgeous in a classic gown with a lace bodice. Jeremy was very handsome in a vest and tie. They were both so excited to start. Their 4-year old little girl was a standout as she came down the aisle with her grandmother. Everything was going as planned for about the first half and then the rain drops started. We waited until there was a good place to stop - right before the “I do’s” - then we all hurried inside to complete the ceremony in the living room. Not what the bride and groom had envisioned but the energy in the house was one of love and joy so it was still beautiful - and certainly memorable.
Of course, as soon as the ceremony was over the rain stopped. But they had nice weather for the reception. It’s always good to have a Plan B for an outdoor wedding - especially in Northeast Ohio! Wishing them much love and happiness in their new life together.
