From the moment we got up in the morning we were watching the weather – is it raining yet…. will the wind die down…. will they need to move the ceremony indoors? The Manor House has such a beautiful view of the city from their ceremony site is would be sad to move it inside. A few sprinkles here and there, the wind gave it a go for awhile and slowed down a bit. I watch the Weather Channel’s forecast on my iPhone to monitor which direction the storm was moving. Everyone who lives in Colorado knows that in the summer when it rains the skies unload with forceful thunderstorms, hail and lightening but after the storms… it can be so beautiful. Part of me was hoping that would be the case. Let it pour for an hour, let the system move on and give us an amazing afternoon for the wedding. But the weather Gods had other plans…. a slow, off and on drizzle, gusts of wind now and then and a beautiful sunset that evening.
By late afternoon the sprinkles had stopped, chairs were wiped down and guest seated. We were ready to begin Tina and Kody’s ceremony….
I love, love , love this photo Amanda took of Tina’s dad holding her veil. It was such a defining moment for father and daughter when he placed it on her head. Tears all around… even the photographers cried.
We invited all the wedding guest to come out front on the Manor House steps for photos. The Manor House is 95 years old and is still as beautiful as when was built.
Miss Rachael was so tired of me taking her photo…. she resorted to the “If I can’t see you… you can’t see me” theory. Of course, this is the cutest photo of them all.
Sparklers! A bit unnerving when you’re watching from behind a camera and 60+ people are waving fire sticks around. But it makes for awesome photos!
Congratulations Tina and Kody! We hope you had a fabulous time in Fiji.
Debi and Amanda
