Not every thing goes as planned on a wedding day. With a year of ironing out the details and schedules, each bride and groom hopes nothing will go awry. Emily & Josh are both in the wedding business, working at the Florian Gardens, so they more or less know the drill. They chose not to see each other before their garden ceremony, but as we arrived, Dave (the owner) pulled me aside to show me the huge band of storms heading our way. He predicted rain by the time the ceremony starts. We had two hours set aside for other photographs before the ceremony. I understand it’s a big deal to not see each other, so I approached them with the idea of a First look so they could both have a special moment AND get outdoor photos in the gardens in case the rain wouldn’t hold off for them. They agreed, and I’m so happy they did. We had plenty of time to photograph them, the wedding party, and even family. The rain did hold off until after the ceremony, but when it started at dinner, it poured and didn’t stop until well into the night.
Emily – I love this photo. You just look so hapy.
