When you plan an outdoor wedding in the South during the summer, there’s always the chance of rain. As a bride, you have two choices when the clouds begin to form. You can either fall into a heap on the floor and yell at the skies for betraying you, or you can chin up, accept the fact that you can’t control the weather, and make the call to go with your rain plan.
That’s exactly what Merritt did on her wedding day. We tell our clients every day that the outcome of their weddings is determined by their perspective. If you decide before the day arrives that it’s going to be amazing, it will be… no matter the situation that arises. With Merritt, we made a rain plan early in the process, and when we realized on the day of the wedding that we were going to need to go with it she was ready to make the change.
One of our biggest fears is that we go with a rain plan and once the call is made the skies will clear. That wasn’t the case for this Arrington Vineyards wedding. What started as a mist in the morning turned into a steady rain during the afternoon. Thankfully the barn at Lilac has an amazing loft space where we were able to transition the ceremony. When all was set and done, Merritt and Trent had a stunning ceremony and reception, and the rain couldn’t stop the party, nor the bride’s enjoyment of the day.
Enjoy these beautiful images captured by Shea Halliburton Wright and a big thanks to all of the amazing vendors that helped pull off the perfect wedding for this sweet couple.
