From the photographers:
The bride called us in tears just three days before her wedding to tell us her vendors were backing out due to hurricane Joaquin coming up the east coast. We told her that we would dance in the rain with her, and no matter what we were going to capture gorgeous pictures. She sighed and said “This is going to be the wedding of a lifetime!!” And it was!
This ENTIRE wedding is a DIY wedding, taking Ariel over 2 years to plan her perfect day. Yard sale finds were the highlight of her wedding. No stacked plates at the buffet for this bride, every single plate was different creating a unique and personal experience for each quest. Ariel hand sewed 650 feet of pennant banner to hang above her dance floor. Her farmhouse table s from Tents4rentMD had hand sewn table runners made by the bride. Since her new last name was going to be Fish, she handmade 200 fishing pole wands for her guests to wave during their entrance into the reception. Found in a suitcase were the wedding favors; a burned playlist of the couples favorite songs with handmade CD covers. Every detail was perfectly orchestrated.
Flooding caused the guests and the bride to wear mud boots, but they danced anyway. If rain on a wedding day means good luck, this couple will never have a bad day. Please enjoy these images! May they tug at your heartstrings with the strength of a hurricane!
