Falling In Love With The Unexpected - How a Rainy Wedding Can Still Be The Best Day Ever

Photos by She Exposure

It was a spring day in sunny Florida - or shall we say rainy Florida. Fjona and AJ were getting ready for the day they have been waiting for forever. Although they weren’t originally thrilled that they had to move their wedding inside, they still had the best. day. ever. And it truly shows through these photos. Here’s a few tips on how to make sure you LOVE your wedding day - even if it's your plan b vision.

1. Pick a Venue with Multiple Options

This is SO important. We love a good outdoor ceremony, or even reception. But nobody can control the weather. When starting your wedding planning journey, search for venues that you love the outdoor options, but ALSO have beautiful indoor options. We love that at White Rock Canyon, there are multiple indoor spaces; so if need be, the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, all have a space that they can shine. While the planners, venue staff, vendors, and the couple had to think on their feet to make the perfect ceremony - we knew  ahead of time that we had the space to do so.

2. Delegate Responsibilities

The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be presented with 100 questions - especially if you are feeling stressed about a change. Let those closest to you know your preferences ahead of time, and let them be the point of contact for planners and vendors. This is a huge reason to have a vendor team you trust - they will adjust plans while maintaining your vision, and use their expert knowledge and experience to bring it to life, without pestering you or your family with questions. This allows you to be as stress free as possible, and present with your partner.

3. Keep the Big Picture In Mind

We totally get it - you’ve been picturing this day for months, even years, we also want it to go exactly  as you’ve dreamed. But if the weather has other plans, it’s important to see the bigger picture. You are about to be surrounded by all your closest friends and family, all there to celebrate you and your partner. They care about your LOVE. And while they would find your outdoor ceremony absolutely gorgeous, they are all so happy for your + your union, whether it’s inside or outside. It’s not very often you get to have a dinner party with 50+ of all your favorite people. Soak it in.

4. Remember Why You’re Here

Just like your loved ones are here for you, you are there for EACH OTHER. At the end of the day, what really matters is your relationship, and the beginning of the rest of your lives. You can FEEL the love that Fjona and AJ have for each other through these photos. Through a whirlwind, exciting, stressful day, they were each other’s rocks. Just as they will walk through life together.
