Let me preface this blog post by saying that I’m writing this while watching the finale of The Bachelorette, and MAN OH MAN. If you’re a fan, are you Team Blake or Team Garrett? (I’m Team Blake all the way.)
Back to THIS couple, Sarah and Dillan! Mr. & Mrs. Dillman got married on a rainy May afternoon at Happily Ever at the Barn. I have worked with relaxed couples before, but Sarah and Dillan really made the most of their wedding day and didn’t let the stress of rain get to them. When we went out during what was supposed to be “sunset portrait” time, it started raining. Sarah said “can we stay and keep shooting?” I adored her even more for that! They slow danced in the rain – Dillan in his suit, and Sarah barefoot in her beautiful long-sleeved wedding gown.
Sarah’s mother helped her choose some special jewelry and brooches to wear, while Dillan played pool and drank Capri-Sun pouches with his favorite guys. While I was taking Dillan’s groom portraits, two things happened – his button fell off his suit jacket, and the rain came POURING down! We only had about 30 minutes before the ceremony was planned to start, so we all began to pray that the skies would clear up. Low and behold, the ceremony started on time with beautiful blue skies and a rainbow!
Sarah and Dillan, thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful day on camera. I am SO glad you both trusted me and were willing to take photos in the rain after you said “I do.” Enjoy life together!
I am so happy for Sarah and Dillan, and I am so excited to share with you some of my favorite photos from their wedding day. Enjoy!
