From the photographer, Chris McLaughlin: It rained and rained and then finally let up moments before the ceremony started. The bride, Mandy, had her heart set on an outside ceremony so we rushed a few chairs outside, had the guests gather around, and pulled off a last minute miracle!
From the bride: We were married in a meadow with the mountains as our backdrop. We adorned the ceremony structure with clusters of sunflowers and a crystal chandelier. During the ceremony, one lonely cloud showed up and dumped on us so umbrellas were hastily handed out as we exchanged vows under the raindrops. Fortunately, as a bride, I was so happy to be getting married that I giggled instead of cried.
