Red Maple Vineyard was the perfect spot for a wedding on July 14,2018.The sun was shining and dancing on the grass boasting some new dewy drops from a rain shower that had just passed through. Isn’t it funny how its SO gorgeous out after it rains? Inside groomsmen dressed up like the classiest dapper-dans that you have ever seen were busy pinning on boutonnieres. This is how I found our groom Cooper Hardin. Cooper is easily one of the sweetest most genuine human beings I have ever met, He listens with sincerity to everything you say and one of my favorite qualities…he is head over heels in love with his now wife Heather. We lucked out and got all the guys done before the clouds rolled in.

Heather and her incredibly beautiful group of ladies buzzed around Ooing and Aahing at how AMAZING heather looked in her gown (although Heather could have worn sweatpants and still been the most beautiful bride hands down). Wedding days are unpredictable, I say It over and over again during timeline meetings that we need a plan A,B, and yes even plan C. As we prepared to head out for the ceremony the skies opened up, guests were quickly shuttled back down where Red Maple Vineyards was busy executing the most impressive reception to ceremony swap I have ever seen! It took like 15 minutes to transform the tent and what happened next was something that could not have been reproduced if we had complete control over the weather that day.


Rain made the most beautiful soothing sound in the background as Heather quite literally glided down the aisle to an all too happy to see his almost wife Cooper at the other end. You see the thing about rain that no one can deny is that its cozy, it makes you feel like cuddling up. As I stood there watching around 150 people lean over to get a better glimpse of the amazing bride I cant help but think that the rain just MADE this day. Im not going to get into how it can be symbolic of the nature of marriage or anything corny like that, I am going to tell you that even though it was raining everything that went on during Heather and Coopers wedding day was brilliantly bright. The rest of the day was filled with gorgeous thick beams of sunlight that came out JUST in time for bridal portraits, and the party to end all parties…I mean guys they had a RAP battle…RAP. Not only are they gorgeous,smart, amazingly witty and super in love but they are straight up BFFs and that is the recipe for an incredible marriage!
