Rainy days are pretty polarizing; either you absolutely love them or you dislike everything about them. So for those of you that fall in the latter group, this post is for you. We want to show you that rain on your wedding day, though unplanned might just be that added magical bonus you weren’t expecting. We know we probably won’t convince you to join the rainy day lovers of the other side, but we hope we can help you stress less about a part of your big day that you truly have no control over.
So if you are up for a new perspective join us on this tour of some of our very favorite Rainy Day wedding moments from over the years.

Point 6: Meditate on the sound
There is a reason rain is a sound often used to help people calm their minds and meditate. The pitter-patter of raindrops on the world outside our windows tends to ground people in what is most important. Now imagine that same sound as a beautiful little symphony on the roof of your greenhouse wedding venue.
