I was slightly disappointed as I traveled to Samantha's parent's house to begin their wedding photography coverage. The forecast threatened thunderstorms lasting the entire duration of the wedding day, and the bride and groom had planned a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. However, I kept my head high and knew no matter what that it would turn out beautifully.
The rain continued as we photographed the details and the girls getting ready. Then, something remarkable happened. On our way to the ceremony and reception site just before portraits began, the skies brightened, the radar cleared, and it was to be clear skies for the rest of the day! I was thrilled for Samantha and Patrick! They were able to have their lovely ceremony overlooking the sunflower fields and rolling grassy hills. With the sun shining down, this sweet couple said their vows and were happily cheered on by friends, family and their adorable son who took on the ring bearer role.
Their reception followed in the red barn with some impressive dancing by the wedding guests and hilarious shenanigans during the garter toss! Those who were there know how it went down! Patrick and Samantha's wedding couldn't have been more gorgeous, and I feel like one lucky photographer to have been chosen to capture it. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Johnston, and thank you!
