I’m so very excited to finally be sharing this rainy day Padua Hills Theater Wedding. May weddings in California are known for their perfect weather so when the forecast showed it was going to downright pour on Brian and Carolyn’s wedding day I assured them everything would be fine! They expressed how disappointed they were that their ceremony had to be moved indoors since they had booked this location specifically for their outdoor view. Rain in May is so not something we Californians typically have to worry about so they really didn’t consider it might rain when they booked their venue. Most of us don’t consider rain being a possibility that late into the month of May here in sunny SoCal. Nonetheless their wedding day turned out perfect. heavy rain and all… and I mean HEAVY rain.
During some of our portraits I was actually standing in pouring rain (thank you to the best assistant ever for holding a massive umbrella over me!). The rain let up before the ceremony for about 45 minutes and we decided to go for it! We captured portraits, family formals and bridal party photos all during that time frame. It was a insane but we totally rocked it and got it done! We were SO thankful we did because seconds after the ceremony started it was pouring so hard that you couldn’t see ten feet in front of you. Craziness.
Brian and Carolyn had a beautiful wedding day despite the rain. Their friends and family came together for them and helped to make sure that everything was done in a timely manner which really helped coordinate everything when we were working with a very limited amount of time for portraits. I first met Brian’s family last October when I photographed his sister’s wedding and it was so much fun seeing all of their friends and family again. They truly are a sweet family.
Brian and Carolyn, I hope you had an AMAZING time in Barcelona! I can’t thank you enough for choosing me to be part of your story. You guys had a gorgeous day… rain and all!
It was heavily raining in these next set of photos, I was actually under an umbrella for these! They were totally worth it though!
