Do you have a back up plan for your wedding? If  you do not and the weather does get out of hand, your greatest asset will be a sunny attitude. As you can clearly see from our next wedding the couple embraced an unexpected change in their plans, and their wedding turned out all the more beautiful and special because of it.
Take a moment to soak it all up all the details, no pun intend. And ... remember you can see  even more in the full gallery here! All wonderfully captured by Bethany Small Photography.

Words from The Vendors

This event was nothing short of beautiful! Every detail was inspired by the bride's creativity and care for her special day and the ones attending. The wedding was set to take place outdoors but after the rain clouds moved in, the chances of a dream outdoor ceremony quickly slipped away.

I was so impressed to see the bride handle this situation so well! Her groom was so good at telling her how beautiful the reception would be indoors and all that mattered was that they would be married!

The wedding taking place indoors allowed for the guests to enjoy the handwritten love notes scattered throughout that the bride had handwritten in the sweetest font herself. The bride even took the time to make all the apple pies for the dessert!

The groom had his share of creativity too; he put together each one of his groomsman's gifts of a camping mug and a fun pair of socks. Lastly as the guests were leaving they were sent out with sweet bags of coffee!

Words from The bride

One of the few things we would have done differently would have been preparing a back up plan for if it rained. We had planned to have our ceremony outside up until about 30 minutes before the wedding started, when we made the decision to bring it indoors because of the heavy rain. It was a little hectic trying to move everything inside last minute, and I wish we would had planned for that better. But in the end it’s those unpredictable and real moments that make for great memories :)
