Rainy Day Georgia Wedding!

What if you wake up on your wedding day and it RAINS and I mean raining with capital letters. Saturday the entire State of Georgia was under a flood watch and this happened to one of the nicest couples I have met in a long time. No, they were not depressed or upset.......they went on as if it was the brightest sunny day and they were not going to let the rain ruin their special time. Instead they went with it and
made the VERY best of what was given to them as far as weather.
It rained all day in various degrees, but the worst of the rain came just about the time when our lovely bride Jennifer arrived at the waterfall in a horse carriage to meet Aaron, her husband to be to say their vows to each other and you can see on her smile that no amount of rain could wipe that kind of smile of her face.
They had decided earlier in the day that they were going to go ahead with their dream of a waterfall wedding and so we covered that tender rainy ceremony for them.
Their guest stayed under cover and watched as they gave each other promises of love and those promises were witnessed by their maid of honor and their best man. Both her father and and her stepfather were troopers too, not only did they walk her down the aisle to meet Aaron, but her father also read a beautiful scripture and her stepfather released the most wonderful butterflies as they kissed and all this in one of the worst rains we have seen in years.
After the ceremony we went back out to the waterfall which came down like roaring thunder with it's full flow of water and took some incredible romantic shots of them
as the rain continued. Jennifer and Aaron......thank you, for staying calm, happy and the beautiful people that you are through all of this, we will never forget you guys and we admire you so much! You can see the happiness in Jennifer's face as she and Aaron danced their first dance later on in the evening. Chota Falls is a beautiful spot even in the rain and her bouquet was just incredible, Henry Luther from Creative Accents and his assistant Maria did an outstanding job on their flower creations.
I can't wait for Jennifer and Aaron to come back next summer for a more "FORMAL" Trash the Dress Session under one of my favorite waterfalls in the area.
