This wedding season has been spectacular.
With rain, rain, and more rain, there’s this magic that every photographer hopes for on a rainy wedding day, and It. Keeps. Happening.
Seriously, almost every wedding I’ve shot this season, it has rained or sprinkled! And despite the wishes for clear skies, we are greeting with dreary clouds. The sun may be blocked and there is no blue in sight, but a soft airy light filters down through the clouds, onto the festivities below. Which creates the perfect atmosphere for natural and beautifully lit photographs, which can be taken almost anywhere on the grounds.
We don’t have to seek out shaded areas for portraits, no one has to squint in the bright light, a cool breeze drifts over from the shady atmosphere cooling our cheeks…it’s perfection.
And that’s exactly the atmosphere that Lauren & Jacob shared on their wedding day. The grounds were filled with twinkle lights and locally sourced flowers from L and J’s mother’s gardens. The newly weds shared communion in the intimate Amish horse stable where the ceremony was held, and excitedly celebrated with their guests for the rest of the afternoon. With a little rain for luck and some wind on our necks it was a lovely evening. Congrats Lauren & Jacob!
