Nicole & Shawn (and their entire family and guests) proved that a little (ok A LOT) rain cannot stop the party or the joy of this wedding day! The drizzle began just as we were finishing up our outdoor portraits (thank goodness!), and then right before dinner the deluge began! But because of an amazing vendor team and an incredibly calm bride & groom, everyone embraced the weather and continued to celebrate. With every thunder clap the guests would cheer and clink glasses for our adorable couple to kiss. When it was time for the first dance, Nicole & Shawn made my photography dreams (and like, any romantic’s dream ever) come true by slow dancing in the pouring rain. And then everyone joined in and it was truly amazing. To see an entire group of people support their loved ones in that way was pretty magical!
