After a sweet little ceremony in Biddeford Pool, the rain did indeed come as Catherine and John were saying hello to their guests in a receiving line. We booked it into the trolley, and by the time we stopped to do formal photos it had stopped, but the skies remained threatening. We made it through formals and even had some time for portraits of just the two of them as thunder clapped in the distance.
Guests were treated to a lovely dinner back at The Colony as I kept an eye on the skies, hoping we could sneak back out for a few more photos. At one point I turned and saw some pretty magnificent yellow beams spilling in through a window, and knew we had to get back out there. Catherine and John were totally game, even though it was raining a bit, and we were treated to some beautiful light and stormy skies in the background.
I'm convinced that the good karma these two (and their families) bring to their lives was responsible for such an amazing day, with just a few drops to dodge. I was grateful to let it rub off on me and will always remember how gracious they were to make me feel so included in such a sweet celebration.
