Christi + Kenny’s wedding was the most unique wedding I have ever had the pleasure of capturing. The flowers were beautiful, the color choices looked amazing, and the bride was gorgeous. But it wasn’t any of that. It is what happened over the course of that day, their day, that made it perfect.
Now, perfect sometimes means everything playing out just as we planned. And then, sometimes, God has a perfect we didn’t know existed until He plays it out.
Everything was set up for a lovely outdoor wedding. The sun was out, it was a bit humid, but overall, a nice day. Then, about 30 minutes before showtime, the clouds rolled in. And it started. Christi and Kenny both were being bombarded with questions about a back up plan. We decided to hold the ceremony in the small-ish sunroom. Not really big enough, but all we had to work with. We started bringing the chairs in when it hit. A literal storm. Not just a sprinkle, but thunder, lightning, wind, and rain. The gorgeous ceremony set up outside was in shambles on the ground. Christi’s father and I grabbed an umbrella and ran through the storm to save her flowers. When we got back inside, about a dozen people—guests and members of the bridal party alike—were helping arrange chairs and set up the room. Without skipping a beat, several people grabbed the flowers from us and hung them where instructed.
It was already past the official ceremony start time. As the guests filed in, the lights flickered…and went out. And the ceremony began.
As the flower girl and ringbearer entered, the pastor led everyone in “Hallelujah” And this is how Christi entered—to a chorus sung by her wedding guests up to the front of the little sunroom where her Kenny waited with tears in his eyes.
Oh my gosh–will you please check out the way he looks at her:
These two are incapable of stopping smiling at one another.
Except for when they are kissing…
Or being fierce…
The electricity remained off as the sunset. The music played thanks to the DJ’s generator, and Kenny held Christi close on the dance floor.
