You have been planning your dream day for the last 10 months, everything is in place, its going to be magical and then "IT" happens........grandma loses her teeth, the wrong wedding cake is delivered, Dad steps on your dress making you trip, or the very reliable weather man gets it wrong!
In every wedding that I have been involved in, Yes! every one, something unplanned or unexpected happens. But are you going to let it ruin your day? Lots of brides do, thinking that their special day is over because of something that in fact will be one of their favorite memories in years to come.
During the last two weddings that I have had the pleasure of being the photographer for something unexpected happened. In Desiree and Wally's wedding, we had to contend with an insect that flew into the brides dress. Instead of ruining the moment, we captured all the action and one of the most natural and relaxed pictures of the bride and her family all day......a magic moment:
In Heather and Chris's wedding, everyone had to get creative when the less than 10% chance of rain happened during their beautiful outdoor beach house ceremony and reception. Their pictures illustrated everyones flexibility and desire to have fun no matter what on such a special day:
When you look back on your wedding 5 years from now, your memories will be of the unexpected, the unplanned, the funny, the special and the odd moments from your day. Just remember, everything will not go as planned, so just relax, breathe, and make the best of whatever comes your way. Be sure to hire vendors who are flexible and who can be creative if something changes. They will be calm and keep everything rolling so that you can celebrate with family and friends. This will be a very special and memorable day no matter what, so enjoy it and "expect the unexpected".
