To say the weather wasn’t as this couple planned for would be an understatement… moments before they planned to see each other for the first time we were caught in a crazy hail storm, in a barn! Yikes! I was starting to get worried that the whole barn was going to blow away but we stayed safe and mostly dry. Their outdoor ceremony didn’t happen, but the edge of the barn doors was still a beautiful spot! The sun came out during the reception allowing guests to mingle outside during the cocktail hour. They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, if that is the case Jackie and Matt will be abundantly blessed! Congrats guys!

Not letting anything bother me, the hail/rain, anything that didn’t turn out perfect, letting it be.

Advice for future brides & grooms:
Do want you want to make it your day, and remember at some point to stop and enjoy the process.

Besides the weather? Have the dogs there anyways, and find the time to eat my meal….
