It could have gone wrong but it went so right!

I can’t seem to get enough of this topic: rain and outdoor weddings. This Saturday I officiated for a fantastic couple at Mountain Springs Lake (one of the great secret treasures of the Poconos) and the weather was a bit drizzly.

It looked somewhat like this in the tent.

It wasn’t exactly raining, but then again, it wasn’t a sunny day. The ceremony was all set to go outside, but a few more drops and the bride made the call.  Brides, it is your call! I would have made the exact same decision. So inside the tent we went!

MSL’s fantastic staff all sprung into action. The DJ, Dave Kish, had to move all his gear, too. Dave, btw, is one of the best DJ’s around. He doesn’t make the event about him – he understands it’s about you!

So everyone was dry under the tent, but as it turned out, it didn’t rain.

Disappointing? Not really, because we had a fantastic time! That old adage ‘better safe than sorry’ comes to mind. The best part for me was with no worries about the weather I was totally focused and we had an amazing ceremony. There was lots of laughter and tears as Tracy and Brian tied the knot.

I can’t wait to see Susie Forrester’s

photos, because she is a great photographer in the photojournalism style I just love.

I love a simple wedding gown!

Other nice things of note – the bride wore comfortable flats and did not have a long train on her dress. I thought she looked amazing with elegant simplicity. I’m a big fan of simple wedding dresses. I think a bride looks more ‘real’ in a dress that she can move around in, that looks (some what) like a normal dress, and is comfortable! I sometimes wonder how a bride enjoys the reception in a bulky, heavy gown, bustle, crinoline and all!

Flats with your wedding dress will provide comfort for the entire event!

If this sounds like one big commercial, I’m sorry – but it was just a great wedding with a great group of vendors. I love it when it goes that way.
