An outdoor wedding, at a tree farm, surrounded by her family and friends. That was Rachel’s vision for her wedding, and she had thought of every detail. Her DYI game was strong, and they had all worked so hard to ensure this was the day of her dreams. Rachelle and Derek’s Outdoor Edmonton Wedding was going to be unforgettable.
Just before the ceremony was set to start, the rain began. And it didn’t just trickle. The clouds opened up and the sky exploded. It was a storm of epic proportions. They tried to hold off to see if the rain was going to pass, but finally they had to call it. It was no use, that outdoor ceremony was not going to happen. The guys rushed all the chairs inside, the guests pitched in, and together they transformed the barn into a beautiful ceremony site in no time.
Rachelle was disappointed, of course she was. But she took a deep breath and decided to make this the best day she could. And you know what? She did. She made it INCREDIBLE. Her eyes were only on Derek, they laughed and cried and had the best time. The rain even let up enough for us to head outside for some photos before it started up again.
This day was all about family coming together to make this day magical for the couple. The whole family played a part in helping, and the love they all put into the day shone through.
We can never predict the weather, but these two – and all of their guests – proved that it’s just as much fun to dance in the rain.
So much love to you guys!
