Thoughts on a Rainy Day Wedding- YAY or NAY?

Dohm_0311_MMPAlthough we don’t see it often, this year it seems May has been a bit… well damp.  For couples (and their photographers) who are in love with an outdoor wedding, hearing the chance of rain on your wedding day can spur some depressing thoughts, dohn_0003j_mmphowever major kudos to our couples who experience this minor occurrence as all have shrugged off a little shower or major downpour and simply enjoyed their celebrations.  The best way to offer thoughts and tips if rain is on the radar for your wedding can only be expressed by recapping Brianna & Travis’s wedding at the Lancaster Eden Resort.

Dohm_0526_MMPThe fun and carefree couple had planned for an outdoor, courtyard ceremony with a short jaunt to a local Lancaster park for beautiful outdoor creative portraits, yet mother nature decided differently.  Bri & Travis were definitely prepared (as everyone planning an outdoor wedding should) and snatched up beautiful matching umbrellas for their bridal party and a large black golf for themselves which from what I heard were a steal at 5 Below.  Brianna and Travis’s attendants also took a page from the “How to be a gold star member of the bridal party” and made the best of it.. no complaints, no smugness, just happy and hilarious as the sky dropped huge buckets of rain during the bridal party shots.  We even got a break in the rain just in time for the couple portraits!

Most photographers actually love shooting on a rainy day as not everyone can capture gorgeous images when the elements are against them with lighting and how the subject will react.  Rain also makes the surroundings glisten.. but enough on my opinion and YAY vote.. you be the judge:)
