“The unexpected is usually what brings the unbelievable.”
You can spend forever planning every last detail of your wedding, and good weddings do take a tremendous amount of planning. But sometimes, it rains on and off throughout your entire outdoor wedding and reception, you get to the tree planting part of the ceremony and realize you don’t have a shovel and your veil blows into your groom’s face at the very moment you are pronounced husband and wife.
These kinds of things are never in the plans, but they are always in the stories that get told afterwards with lots of laughter at the crazy memories.
Despite the twists and turns, Chris and Christie’s wedding day was one of my favorites of the summer. Even when the reception tables were getting moved back and forth between outside and the shelter with each rain shower and clearing and the ceremony got delayed due to the rain, Chris and Christie were laughing and enjoying the day.
They were an amazing example of what really matters on a wedding day. They had each other, they were surrounded by the people they love most and nothing else matters. That attitude and the joy surrounding the couple made it such a memorable day.
They got married on their friend’s polo ranch in Watertown. It was one of my favorite venues I’ve ever shot at, and I am bummed I will probably never get to shoot another wedding there since it’s not actually a “venue.”
I seriously loved everything about their day and I am so glad I got to be a part of it!
