Mike & Meghan could have written a book about their wedding planning process – it would have been an epic tale of trials & tribulations and finally … triumph! They found the perfect location for the barn wedding Meghan had envisioned in Bliss Farm out in Western Massachusetts and not even the rain that turned from a drizzle into a downpour could dampen their spirits. One of my grooms many, many moons ago said “if rain on your wedding day bothers you, you’re marrying for the wrong reasons” – and he was right. Rain was not going to stand between Mike & Meghan and a fabulously fun wedding day.
Thankfully, there were video instructions on how to tie the bow on Meghan’s dress – what a clever idea!
In the meantime, the groomsmen didn’t let the rain stop them from playing wiffle ball…
… as Mike was busy putting on the final touches. Go Red Sox!!!
One thing about these groomsmen & bridesmaids. They were absolutely, hand’s down awesome! We had originally planned for an outdoor ceremony with Meghan & Mike’s first look session hidden from arriving guests but the rain moved the ceremony as well as the first look session into the barn as guests were arriving. Mike’s groomsmen jumped in to save the day, standing on each side of the barn, clutching their umbrellas as they asked guests to hold off on entering the barn so Mike & Meghan could see each other, just the two of them, before their ceremony. Thank you so very much for being this incredibly amazing!!!
Mike & Meghan had a beautiful ceremony, full of laughter & joy with a long time family friend making it official.
Congratulations you two! This has been a long time in the making so enjoy!
Since it was still raining at this point, we decided to take the group photo of all the guests indoors and then position the smaller groups just inside the barn doors so they would stay dry.
The gorgeous couple!
This is probably my new favorite photo of all times.
Super cute decor – hard to tell that this is indeed Western Mass. and not Vermont. 😉
Thankfully, the rain let down just a little bit so Mike & Meghan could have the sparkler exit they had planned all along.
Mike & Meghan – I’m so incredibly happy to we finally (!) got to meet after so many twists and turns. I’m incredibly honored that you had me photograph your wedding & loved every minute of your day. Wishing all the happiness in the world!
