I am not a superstitious person but, I've got to be honest, sometimes it's hard not to believe there are outside forces at work in the world of wedding photography.
Such was the case with Jeffrey and Clarissa's late June wedding in Smithfield, Rhode Island.
Set to take place at Twelve Acres, home to the one wedding I've had so far in my career where unexpected rain moved the ceremony at the last minute, I couldn't help but have severe flashbacks on the morning of Clarissa and Jeff's big day as the skies got ominously more cloudy as the minutes to their ceremony ticked closer.
Try as we may, the weather gods laughed at our plans for a lovely outdoor ceremony and the skies down poured from moments before we left to go to the first look until the moment this bride and groom said "I do" but in a promising sign for their new marriage, Jeffrey and Clarissa didn't get upset. They shrugged their shoulders, said "What are you going to do?" and proceeded to have an incredible afternoon wedding in spite of the wishy washy forecast.
I may not be a superstitious person but I have to believe that positive attitude paid off as the rest of their wedding day was absolutely perfect and a good reminder that while things may not always go as you plan, as long as you're with the person you love the most, nothing can stop your wedding day from being one of the best of your life. It certainly was for this bride and groom.
