May 31 Wedding: Bethany and Michael

Saturday, June 7, 2008

All week long, the weather reports were calling for scattered thunderstorms on Saturday, May 31. I was hoping that somehow the rain would hold off for my bride and groom who were flying in from the Seattle area for their wedding day! After working with these two for almost a year to plan their wedding, these two have quite a special love story and it's clear that they are very dedicated to their relationship. Since they were already married two years ago right before they deployed to Iraq, Bethany needed her special wedding day in order to finally change her last name.

We really lucked out because it only rained ONCE that day, right after Bethany stepped into the limo to go out to the ceremony chapel. All of the caterers, florists and coordination team that were left back at the reception to set up the decor details in the tent began calling my cell phone saying a number of things including "I thought the tent was going to blow over!!". I, of course, was off at the ceremony and couldn't do anything but worry. That was the only time it rained ALL DAY and we ended up with wonderful weather.

As always, Scott and Julie at Easywind Studio were wonderful to work with and captured some great moments, as you can see below.

I spoke with Bethany after the wedding and she said that she had a vision of the wedding beforehand but it "exceeded" her expectations entirely. It made me so incredibly happy to hear that because if anyone deserved a romantic and perfect wedding day, it was Bethany and Michael. Congratulations!
