“happy is the bride that rain falls on” ~ irish folklore saying (thanks to my mom for remembering this!)
one of the things i loved about this particular ceremony was the bride & groom’s vision for her entry – unlike the traditional ‘walk through the aisle’ they opted for something a little more artistic that make full use of the beautiful location – the idea was for the bride accompanied by her mom to meander through a few areas on the grounds…the tree & the lavender garden. the groom had a vision of seeing little peeks of the bride as she made her way to a vine-covered trellis for their ceremony.
as it was raining rather steadily by this point, guests stood in a semi-circle with umbrellas.
documenting this photographically was a little tricky for wherever i went involved two – one holding an umbrella ahead of me; made for a lot of umbrella bumps with guests who were rather kind and understanding save patient with me weaving in/out. i was mainly interested in emotions and expressions and truth be told, got a little choked up myself.
so here’s how this most important part of the day felt….deep, rich, beautiful.
