A rainy wedding doesn’t always have to be gloomy. The ivy covered historic estate of Gabrella Manor sat against a backdrop of heavy rain and wind. While most brides would be bummed about the yucky weather, Laura was cheerful. The atmosphere in the bridal suite was upbeat. Laura’s bridesmaids helped to set up baby pictures of the couple as the groom and groomsmen played poker down the hall.
Laura and Tanner opted not to have a first look. He was all smiles when she walked down the aisle amid the swishing of the wind outside. The couple was married by her uncle as they were surrounded by friends and family.
After the ceremony the happy couple stole away for newly married portraits and even braved the blowing rain for what has become one of our most favorite photos of our couples in 10 years, proving that no matter what the weather, beautiful images can still be crafted.
After braving the rain, they enjoyed a private meal together, their first as husband and wife before being announced into the reception for funny toasts by both of the couples fathers.
At the end of the wedding day, Laura and Tanner exited the wedding amid a flurry of snow which brought delight to all the guests faces both young and old. It was an honor to capture not only Tanner’s commissioning ceremony as well as his wedding and lovely to see both their families again. Congratulations to the newly married couple.
