AnnMarie and Steve got married on the rainiest weekend I can recall. The kind of rain that you cannot even see through because it appears to be a waterfall dropping down from an unseen sky. Except…for about 2-1/2 hours in Dennison, Ohio at a place aptly named The Barn on Enchanted Acres, the rain stopped. I can clearly recall driving to the venue wondering if the rain would delay guests arriving, it was that awful. But as I got within about 15 minutes the rain was no longer a downpour, then a few miles out it was a drizzle, then a mist. And as I pulled up, already clad in my raincoat, I stepped outside and not a drop was falling. I zipped around getting location photos and outdoor details assuming this was a brief respite. But as AnnMarie donned her gown, it held off. As Steve and the guys raised a glass of whiskey to the day, it held off. As the staff dried off the chairs at the outdoor ceremony site, no new rain fell. So AnnMarie and Steve, who had such hopes and dreams were married in front of family and friends on a mild November day under a gray but non-threatening sky. And after they became Mr. & Mrs. we wandered around the gorgeous grounds; they swung on the floral swing a bit, cuddled as the air grew cooler, laughed with joy at their luck as we fit in our last few photos before entering their reception. And within moments of their grand entrance I once again heard the sound of rain falling. They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. AnnMarie and Steve had that and more in finding each other and if volume of rain counts, even with the break in the weather they still earned enough for several lifetimes on their wedding day.
A special thanks from the Bride and Groom to David Stewart who was an amazing wedding planner and florist.
