Brittany & Sean had a lovely vision for their wedding, and they chose Oak Tree Manor in Spring to carry out their rustic boho-chic nuptials. The ceremony was to be set under the majestic 200-year-old oak tree that welcomes guests to the property. We kept an eye on the weather for a week, and it was certain—it was going to pour on their wedding day. Brittany’s optimism was contagious as she chose the weather report with the smallest chance of rain, or the forecast of rain later in the day when everyone would be safely partying inside the Grand Hall already, when we had to talk about the contingency. The day of the rehearsal was bright and sunny, which actually made it worse, as we knew this wouldn't be the case on their big day. But Brittany and Sean were just so excited to get married, they didn’t care whether it was inside or outside. And that they did.
It was a sunshine-filled morning, leading into an overcast afternoon and the decision had to be made. As Brittany was getting her hair and makeup done, nestled amongst her bridesmaids, I let her know we’d be moving the ceremony inside. And she just smiled and said “OK!” Luckily, Brittany & Sean had a sweet first look under that beautiful oak tree, and the wedding party joined for some breathtaking photos outside before the storm hit—just minutes before they walked down the aisle. It was just as perfect, just as stylish, and just as surrounded with the love of their family and friends as it would have been outside. The party continued into the rainy evening, subsiding just in time for them to have a lovely send-off. Things may not have gone as planned, but it was still the perfect day!
