Sometimes weather isn't a big deal...and sometimes it is. Like when you have an outdoor ceremony and no Plan B. As any wedding photographer does, I started watching my weather app about the week before the wedding. It started out looking like we were golden, then progressively turned worse as the week marched on towards the day of the wedding. In the past this may have stressed me out, but I was completely calm & cool. I knew we had a gorgeous location both inside and out and a sweet couple and we would make it through the day. Regardless, I woke up Friday and snatched up my phone to see that a giant change on my weather app had NOT occurred and started to pray for a well timed break in the rain for the ceremony while I prepped my equipment.
I arrived to Jameson and the same calm I felt about the day was flowing through the venue. There were no major conversations about what to do... we just had faith that it would turn out ok. We started photographing the bridal prep as if the sun was shining outside and there were no worries. I'm pleased do tell you that God heard us, and as Tierra started to descend the staircase into the ceremony the last few drops fell and the rain gave us the break we needed for the ceremony and photos and came back to visit after everyone was safely inside the reception! Even though we probably would have all loved to have a full day of sun, I'm so excited that Tierra and Devonte have an awesome wedding story that includes God's favor on their important day.
Both Tierra & Devonte used Jameson Manor to get ready for the day. It's always exciting for us when the groom is on the same property as the bride during bridal prep, because so often we miss out on the neat pictures of the groom getting ready.
Tierra wore a sleek fitted gown with the most beautiful see through side details, high neck, glittery flats, and her hair pulled up elegantly with a sweet floral clip.
Devonte wore a grey suit, white bow tie, black shoes, silver cuff links, and the COOLEST watch!
