“At night I dream that you and I are two plants
that grew together, roots entwined,
and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth,
since we are made of earth and rain.”
~ Pablo Neruda
And so it rained.
We wedding photographers like to tell our clients, as they prepare for their wedding day, be prepared for rain, but it really never rains when I shoot weddings. Of course, there is little truth to this. It’s just what we hope and pray will happen.
Matt & Adrian rented a field, brought in a tent, flooring, lighting, flowers, linens for a beautiful Autumn wedding high on a hill overlooking leaves of gold, orange and red. And so it rained. Not just a small amount of rain. Lots of rain.
But it was a great wedding. Small, intimate, quiet, pretty. The rain kept things close, cozy, and, in the end it was a beautiful wedding day story. Enjoy!
