Some people say rain on your wedding day actually brings good luck. If that’s the case, Jenna and Erich will be blessed throughout their marriage. The skies over Orchard Hills Center at Chesterland’s Patterson Fruit Farm looked rather gloomy last Saturday, but the rain held off through the morning and early part of the afternoon. As the 5:00 ceremony drew closer, though, the clouds finally let loose, which obviously made everybody on site a little nervous.
But while showers continued off and on for the next couple of hours, they amazingly didn’t affect Jenna and Erich’s wedding day much at all. The skies parted just before the bride and groom got to see each other for the first time prior to the ceremony, and while we needed to carry a few umbrellas with us as we took some bridal party photos, we all stayed relatively dry throughout the afternoon. Things turned bleak again just before the ceremony, but by the time the guests had all been seated and the bridesmaids started to make their way toward the altar, the rain had stopped once again and we were blessed with what turned out to be a magnificent day.
The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous, no doubt enhanced by the stunning bride and her band of beautiful bridesmaids. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the day, with more to follow as I finish the couple’s gallery in the coming weeks. Congratulations to Jenna and Erich, and here’s hoping the good fortune from your wedding day carries on throughout all the days of your marriage!
