Sarah and Matt got married on a day that promised rain. Not just a little rain, but a true summer storm that came in torrential sheets, lightening, claps of thunder. So best laid plans…. ceremony moved inside the barn, sides went up on the tent and everything was going swimmingly and then the power went out during the reception!

You can never predict how a wedding day might go. All sorts of things can happen that make it different than what you had imagined. But sometimes that different is a wonderful thing.

This did not deter Sarah & Matt’s friends from having an amazing time. The band stepped forward and still kept singing accompanied by a lone saxophone player, everyone took at their cellphones and created light and the party jammed on through the night until the power came back on from a generator purring off in the background.
