However, I had the pleasure of doing two weddings this weekend where the bride put her foot down and worked around the rain to thwart the unexpected weather (I mean really, is it too much to ask for nice weather in June?).
This is Emily and Wes. They had a cool wedding...both literally and figuratively! But as you can see, they are both happy and smiling:
The reception turned out extremely lovely. They set up tents, moved things around and it was all very romantic! The reception was poolside and the steam coming off the pool in the rain was so beautiful.
We decided to use the couple's monogram on cupcakes which made them elegant and casual at the same time.
Shawn is the name of the other brave bride I mentioned above. Coincidentally, her new husband's name is Shawn as well (perhaps that's fate, not coincidence!) We decided to borrow the fantastic monogram from the couple's invitations and use it on the cake as well: "S squared."
So, to all of those brides who fear that their beautiful receptions will be ruined by crazy weather, remember that inclement weather can be beautiful too.
