We did it! Can’t believe I married my soulmate @skuhlke on Saturday. Many thanks to the wedding party, our families, and all the friends and relatives who came from near and far, and who sent prayers and warm wishes our way for this special day.
Going into the day I was feeling great because I had planned for everything... except the weather.
By early afternoon it looked like the weather would cooperate but as afternoon turned to evening the rain came.
At 6pm when the ceremony was to start, my coordinator Stephanie, (who was an angel), managed to convince the venue to start cocktail hour before the ceremony to buy us time.
At 6:45, the rain hadn’t stopped, and Scott gently told me (picture of us conferring by the window) that he thought we should finally consider holding the ceremony indoors. My heart sank. I was insistent about having it outdoors; the florist had installed the arch outside, and this is how I had envisioned it the last 5 months of painstaking planning. I put in a final prayer urging God to pull one through for me, and asked the wedding party if they would forgive me for doing it in the rain. My bridesmaid Kellan had brought Bluetooth speakers for music while we got ready, which we used for sound because the DJ had set up indoors to avoid damaging his equipment.
At ~7pm we started the ceremony and God gave us a 20 minute dry window. By the end of the ceremony a drizzle had returned but I am told a rainbow appeared. 😀
Pro photos to come, but wanted to share some preliminary photos taken by friends for now.
