Brides and grooms often spend a great deal of time worrying about the weather on their wedding day. But from our experience, a rainy day can make for some of the most gorgeous wedding photographs.
After a wonderful ceremony at Saint Vincent de Paul Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Sarah + Mike headed off to the Prince of Wales Hotel for photos and, though the rain was pouring down, the pair had non-stop smiles on their faces.
There’s something comforting about a rainy day. Listening to the raindrops patter down, sharing an umbrella, and being with the one you love. Or in Sarah + Mike’s case, being with the ones they love. Three of Sarah’s bridesmaids, in amazing Priscilla of Boston gowns, are her sisters and Mike’s groomsmen are his incredibly close friends, many from childhood.
After the photos we moved the party back to the Queen’s Landing where Angelica at Simply Beautiful Decor did a stunning job on the reception décor and Jennifer of Mimosa Flower Studio put together the perfect purple and white floral arrangements. Despite the rain that continued to fall outside, the atmosphere felt warm and joyful all evening long.
When Mike first met Sarah, he immediately said she was the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen. And we could see why he felt that. Sarah was a naturally beautiful bride in her Swarovski crystal Ines Di Santo wedding gown and Giuseppe Zanotti chiffon flower sandals. And seriously, that incredible smile didn’t leave her face the entire night.
It’s a common school of thought that rain on your wedding day is good luck. We don’t think Sarah + Mike need any extra luck, but now, every time it rains, instead of complaining about the weather along with everyone else, they’ll smile and remember how amazing their wedding day was.
