A Blush and Black Benton Kentucky Wedding
The entire week leading up to Kortney & Harrison’s wedding it was forecast to rain all during their big day. Kortney and I weren’t too happy about it and we started discussing alternate portrait locations and planning for a rain check session for her and Harrison’s bride & groom portraits. It would have changed things quite a bit but rain doesn’t have to ruin a wedding day. Fortunately for everyone, we didn’t have to find out!
It was lightly raining when I arrived at Kortney & Harrison’s house to start the day and the girls were in the midst of hair and makeup so they were unaware that, while I was photographing bridal details on the front porch, the sun came up and literally dried up all the rain! I didn’t want to get our hopes up but the radar was changing – in our favor! Saturday morning’s forecast stated 90% all day, Saturday afternoon’s changed to 0%. It happened that fast and I’ve never been more thankful! I heard it all day long from friends and family, and even Kortney & Harrison and their wedding party, “I can’t believe it didn’t rain us out!”
But yet, we’d planned for rain so there were three (yes, again, THREE!) bride & groom portrait times built into the timeline and we got to do every single one of them! Before the ceremony in the church, after the ceremony in a neighborhood, and after the reception in a small field next to the venue. Sure, we had plenty of bride & groom portraits already but why not shoot near sunset when we can?! Those ended up being my favorite!
