“It’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow.” We were at the rehearsal dinner going over some last details for the wedding the next day.
Without skipping a beat, Tina Marie responded matter-of-factly “Oh, that’s good luck.”
The truth is, rain on your wedding day is only good luck if you say it’s good luck. If you say it’s a disaster, a bummer, an inconvenience, it could be any one of those things, too. For Tina Marie, there was no question. Rain on her wedding day was good luck. Because she said so.
The next day, Tina Marie and Brian said a lot of things. They said they would love each other for all time. They said they would care for each other, and for Tina Marie’s eight-year-old daughter, through sickness and through health. They said they would treat each other with respect and admiration. And because they said those things, they would be the truth.
These two lucked out with a snowy engagement shoot, and on their wedding day, it did indeed rain all day. Except, as luck would have it, for the hour that we were scheduled to take portraits outside.
Tina Marie and Brian, you two have my heart. I love that this was a family wedding of sorts, with Adriana taking part in many of the traditions usually reserved for the bride and groom. Your welcoming and positive spirits drove this entire process, and I couldn’t be luckier to have been a part of it. Enjoy this sneak peek of wedding day photos!
