Glynnis and Chris were married on a summer evening in Florida’s oldest city. Their day started off with sunshine and blue skies (see photo number 4), but as is often the case on many summer afternoons in Florida, dark clouds and thunder started to roll in around 4 pm.. Moments before Glynnis put on her wedding dress, she was forced with the decision of whether to move the ceremony or to risk it. I remember being so bummed for her to have to make that decision in the midst of a moment that is supposed to be so joyful, a moment that every girl has dreamt of her whole life. It was HER moment! Being spoiled by lousy weather.. Yet as I stood there watching her wrestle with this decision, the most beautiful thing happened. “I want to talk to Chris,” Glynnis said. “He loves the rooftop..I just want to make sure he’s ok with moving it.” In the midst of her moment, Glynnis could only think of Chris. What a beautiful picture of marriage, amiright?!
Despite the day not going exactly as planned, Glynnis and Chris were an absolute joy to work with. They were even willing to adventure outside after the ceremony to get a few photos with the lovely St. Augustine charm. The rain came down in a steady stream, as they huddled under an umbrella. Chris held Glynnis’ dress, her suede shoes soaked in water, as they smiled, laughed, kissed, and enjoyed the first moments together as husband and wife. As a photographer, rain is never ideal. But to have two people, who with such a sense of perspective and ease was more than I could have asked for!
