Wow, what a crazy wedding day this was! This wedding definitely answered the questions, ‘What if the bride is late? What if it rains on our wedding day? What happens if the timeline is just out the window? What happens if the bride is almost knocked over by an umbrella table?’ But when you’re surrounded by an awesome team of friends, family and wedding vendors, none of these questions matter! At the end of the day, Meredith and Matthew were husband and wife. The rest is history.
Her ring was passed down from her Great Grandmother.
All this. YES.
First Look No Peek! By this point in the day, we were all watching the huge green/yellow/red band of rain head straight for us. It was definitely going to rain. But these two were totally oblivious! They were just as happy and calm as they would have been if the weather was perfect.
The wind picked up and blew the table over. It was so close to hitting Meredith! But she didn’t even flinch! Not one move! They stayed back to back and never saw each other.
The decision was made to push the ceremony back so we could have it outside. We all waited and waited. The band of rain slowly passed and the sun came out. This gorgeous double rainbow appeared! All the guests went outside and wiped down the chairs, we placed flowers and leaves back into the arbor that had fallen during the rainstorm and the band set up their equipment. The evening was gorgeous and the rainbow gave validation for pushing the ceremony start time by nearly an hour. It was all so perfect.

I think he just realized he got married!!
A sweet emotional moment between Meredith’s brother and mom.
I loved their reception. No one cared that the ceremony started late. Everyone was SO happy. Meredith and Matt were smiling the entire day. I LOVED that about them!! You can’t control the weather. No one wants it to rain on their wedding day, but if it does, it does! Work with what you’ve got and remember, by the end of the day, you WILL be married! And that’s what these two did and they were so joyful because of it.
