Contrary to the famous lyrics of Alanis Morisette, there’s nothing ironic about rain on your wedding day. Granted, it’s not something people generally want, but let me be a glimmer of hope for those of you who think this untimely event will completely ruin the day.
Monica and Brian scheduled an engagement photo shoot at Prophecy Creek Park in Blue Bell, PA. The plans were set. The babysitter was in place and the couple got dolled up to drive 20 minutes for an ideal photo opp. As luck would have it, clouds filled the sky and tiny raindrops began to fall.
Amazingly, the drops created this misty effect that added a lot of character! I went from almost canceling the shoot to a camera roll full of great shots. Yes, the sun did pop out for a few!
The moral of the story: rain or shine – get excited about the possibilities! I’ll be there…with an umbrella.
