Rain, fog, and wind are not typically what Brides wish for on their wedding day, especially when you plan to do portraits under the Bear Mountain Bridge. But let me tell you, If ANY couple in the world could handle having less than ideal weather on their wedding day it ABSOLUTELY was Danielle and Brian.I say that because in a very real sense this was not the first storm these guys have weathered together, and If I have learned anything from being married for almost 9 years its that it wont be the last. You cling tightly to one another, brace against the wind and the rain, and huddle under each others umbrellas until the storm passes and that’s what they did.
I tell my couples that truthfully speaking sometimes “eh” weather produces some of my FAVORITE images and this wedding is a PRIME example of that! We coaxed a VERY grumpy bridge authority worker into allowing to take their portraits under the bridge where our “sunny” day plan would have taken us and GOODNESS I am glad we did. I dont know if it was the fact that Danielle has the most laid back grateful attitude I have ever encountered, or if Brian is just so funny that no situation seems to be gloomy, or if the way the fog rolled down the mountain as these two cuddled under the bridge just made the whole scenario magical…but it did.
From getting ready in Danielle’s childhood bedroom all the way to venturing out into the rain at night to grab some AMAZING nighttime portraits (scroll to see) the whole day was intimate, it was personal, it felt like spending the day with family and I know that that was what they wanted. Congratulations you two, I am so thrilled to watch all of the beauties that marriage affords you!
Because we’re going to the Chapel and we’re gunna get married <3
