Real Wedding: Weathering a Wet Wedding Day!

When you’re planning for your big day, you want to make sure that every detail is as perfect as can be. Many brides spend countless hours going over every aspect of the itinerary, discussing the “what ifs,’ checking and double checking anything that might have been overlooked. If any bride has ever done all that and more, it was this bride. “Some obviously plan better than others, and Carrie was one of those brides,” explained Mad Chicken Studio. “I was amazed at the organization and detail that Carrie had planned for their wedding, and she did it with such grace and finesse.” But, regardless of how much planning you do before the big day, there are still times when the unforeseeable happens. In Carrie’s case, Mother Nature had other plans for the sunny, outdoor ceremony she’d planned beside Lake Superior at Bluefin Bay Resort. Instead of placid waters and June’s typical sunny weather, they were greeted with cold weather, rain and choppy waters! Faced with the difficult choice of proceeding with their ceremony by the water or moving everything inside, Carrie and Ryan decided to brave the elements. Their decision proved to be the best one after all. Guests huddled under umbrellas and watched the couple exchange their vows with smiles — a little shower wasn’t about to dampen anyone’s spirits! And, not surprisingly, the stormy backdrop really added a touch of beauty to the setting. A warm and dry reception awaited the bride and groom and their guests inside the resort. The cute decorations and the cozy atmosphere of the dining room made the wet crowd forget the rain in a snap. Before long everyone was having a great time laughing and sipping on wine. Inspired by the lakeside location, Carrie and Ryan drew on fishing as inspiration for their decor. They named each table after lakes and had little fish printed on the guests escort cards. In lieu of a traditional card box, they used an old tackle box decorated with colorful fishing lures. And, on the tables, they added burlap runners over crisp white linens and topped them with chic white peony centerpieces styled by Terra Bella Floral. Although the forecast threw in an unexpected twist to their day, they certainly weathered their wet wedding day like champs!
