Dave and I (Ana!) were getting excited. All of those months of preparation for our wedding was finally going to pay off. We had planned everything "to the t"; the venue was perfect, the bridal party was set to arrive in the coming days and we were ready to take the plunge.
But there was one thing that was nagging at us the entire time; since we were having an outdoor wedding, what would we do if it rained? We had a backup location, but it just wasn't as special as our first choice location. The weather had to cooperate.
As the week heading into the wedding went by, it became more and more clear to us. Whether we liked it or not, it was going to rain on our wedding day, probably right when we were saying our vows. Needless to say, we were upset. All that work, all to be spoiled by some rain? Still, we made the best of it by making arrangements to have some white umbrellas ready for us and our bridal party on the day itself.
As always, Google was right and it did rain on our wedding day. But an amazing thing happened; it made our wedding incredibly more magical than either of us could predict. Amazingly diverse and balanced photos, a unique (and very entertaining) time for our guests, and a magical moment during our vows where the clouds parted and the sunlight shined on both of us.
It was incredible, it was unexpected, it was truly magical. All the things a great wedding is about.
It was from our experience that we decided to start Serendipity Umbrellas. We want to be a part of your unique and special wedding. Our top quality and beautiful umbrella will make for stunning photos and a great accent piece to your wedding.
