Southern Oregon weather is predictable in one way…that it is completely unpredictable. At the beginning of the week I checked the weather for Eddie & Kylie’s Saturday wedding: blue skies and maybe 10 percent chance of rain. When I recheck on Friday: torrential downpour expected. Not ideal for any wedding but especially not great for an outdoor wedding venue without an indoor backup plan. Their family and friends found an immediate solution and got to work. Come hell or high water (hahaha see what I did there) this wedding was going to happen! Love never fails.
When I know the chances for rain are high on anyone’s wedding day I mostly worry how the bride is dealing with it. I walked into the bridal room and Kylie was cool as a cucumber… a gorgeous cool cucumber I might add. She was taking it all in stride and had her eyes on the real prize…becoming Mrs. Corona!
Eddie was helping with last minute details to make sure everything was perfect for his bride. Once he had finished, we orchestrated the switch to the ready room so he wouldn’t see Kylie until she made her big entrance down the isle.
The rain varied in strength during the ceremony but the guests and bridal party stayed dry thanks to the preparations made beforehand. We were working through our rain-guards on our cameras which is always a fun game to play but our gear remained protected. The kissed sealed the deal and we headed into group picture mode.
Towards the end of the formals with the bride and groom the rain was exchanged for hail. Yep, this is Southern Oregon in the middle of June! Regardless of what mother nature was throwing at us- Eddie and Kylie still looked amazing!
The reception flowed with traditions and fun.
They say having rain on your wedding day is supposed to bring the couple good luck. I’m not sure they will need the luck, but I wish them a happily ever after. ❤
