377earlier this week I had posted kelly’s bridal session – the session took place at her parent’s beautiful house on the water down in crisfield and this was to be to location of the wedding as well. so I was driving to crisfield the morning of the wedding, attempting to ignore the massive black clouds that were behind me. when I got to the beauty salon, kelly and her girls were already talking weather and were calling friends of theirs with top of the line radar – rain was coming, there was no getting around it. but…. kelly was getting ready early and there was a lot of time before the ceremony. I pulled up weather radar on my blackberry and while it looked like we were going to get pummeled, it looked like it would clear up fast. so hair and make-up was done, snacks were eaten and we all just hoped for the best. then it came and it wasn’t just rain, it was a classic eastern shore summer storm complete with buckets of rain and power surges. but it did indeed clear up and all seemed well. as I headed over to the house I could see dark skies, but was hoping it was going, not coming. I walked into the house and found everyone on the back deck, looking up – thunder clapped and the decision was made to move the ceremony to a local church – as much as it pained kelly’s mom to make the call, it was obvious what was going to happen. well the church is not your average church, it’s one of the oldest in crisfield and it’s gorgeous – and once we walked into the doors with the wedding dress and all of the flowers – it rained, and rained, and rained – good call mom!

I love this moment between kelly and her mom


after the ceremony was over, the weather cleared and we were able to go some photos outside


this is dean, the flower girl and she had me cracking up all day!





thank you kelly & michael for including me in your day – and rain or shine, it was a beautiful day! congratulations!
