An Intimiate Rainy Wedding: Zack + Becky

I’m not convinced that rain on a wedding day is such a bad thing… This weekend Zack and Becky were planning a beautiful, intimate ceremony outside their church, but the weather had other plans. It was not only rainy, but actually a little chilly too – so the ceremony was moved inside to the lobby. (Lucky for them, the lobby has beautiful, tall windows that truly made it a perfect setting!) As soon as the ceremony and family formals were complete, Becky assured me that she was 100% game for going outside in her dress for some portraits in the rain – so off we went! I’ll let you be the judge, but personally I’m thrilled with how the images turned out, and I don’t know that they would have been quite so “steller” without a little rain on everything!  

Funny story: Becky and I first met through her sister-in-law, who was a bridesmaid for a close friend of my wife’s (whose wedding I photographed). I was set up at the TriadWeddings Marry Me event, and Lily brought Becky by my booth to make sure we were able to connect and get up a time to sit down with her and Zack to nail down details for their wedding. I’ll never forget meeting Becky because she was one of the only people I spoke to at that show… See, the show was the same day that my wife was induced to have our daughter! (Disclaimer: Yes, I was still at the wedding show – but for all of about 30 minutes until I couldn’t take it, and ran back to the hospital! It’s a long story as to why I still attended the show, but I swear the doctors assured me I had plenty of time to work the show and come back without missing anything at all. And as it happened, I would have been able to have attended about 9 shows… This kid of ours took over 55 hours to show up! haha) So, to sum it up, I remembered meeting Becky for the first time quite vividly because I took off for the hospital right after we were done chatting! Then she brought Zack to our first meeting and I knew right away these two were “my kind of people.” Both of them were super focused on making their wedding experience as laid-back and genuine as possible! They chose to do this by having a small ceremony with closest friends and family on Friday evening, and then a HUGE celebration and BBQ with all of their guess the next day. And I’m here to let you know that they nailed it! 

Zack + Becky: I SOOO enjoyed being able to document your wedding journey and get to know both of you! Your wedding was refreshingly unique and oh-so-fun! I’m glad I was there to be a little part… You two enjoy your first weeks as newlyweds, and have fun on the honeymoon! I can’t wait to share all of your images with you at the studio over milk and cookies!
