Location: Monte Verde Inn | Foresthill, California
A drizzly unwelcome rain cloud will sometimes crash a wedding and the whirlwind hustle to put "Plan B" into effect commences. Generally, this plan involves moving everything into a location that is not as aesthetically desirable, where the space is tight, the lighting flat (or nonexistent), and the bride and groom's wedding vision suddenly drowned out by the ongoing downpour.
But, Amber & Brady were the epitome of "grace under fire (or water as the case may be)" when the relentless April showers barged their way onto the guest list. My sweet bride & groom remained composed and weren't about to let some water falling from the sky ruin a single thing! They (and all of their guests) stayed focused on the TRUE meaning of the day----two extraordinary people devoting their lives to one another. ❤️ So, although the elbow room was cramped, the walkways shoulder to shoulder, and the noise level of celebration palpable--this wedding was MAGICAL!! When a groom is brought to tears toasting his bride---it doesn't matter how much rain is falling outside. I was thrilled to capture just a small fraction of the abundant love and joy overflowing from every nook and cranny of the always stunning Monte Verde Inn.
Congratulations Amber & Brady....you have already weathered your first storm together as man and wife and you couldn't have shone brighter through it all. God Bless you two! xo
