What a day! The bride and groom planned an intimate wedding at Oak Island, with a view overlooking Mahone Bay. The weather for the weekend was sketchy - a chance of thundershowers on both Friday and Sunday, sunny for Saturday. When it didn't rain on Friday, I worried that the forecasters were simply a day off in their predictions and we'd have rain for Saturday. There was a backup plan if it rained, a room indoors for the ceremony and umbrellas were on hand for pictures.
But we needn't have worried about the rain. We had beautiful blue skies and the occasional ocean breeze. It was a hot one indeed, the hottest of the summer so far, but it was beautiful.
The ceremony was set for 5pm, which left plenty of time for relaxing - the bride had a leisurely breakfast and followed that up with a mani-pedi; wedding guests hit the beach for the chance to cool off. All of my brides have been calm, cool, and collected - Andrea was no exception. I popped in to see her around noon - she was totally chillaxing while Tyson did her hair.
I'm sure it didn't hurt that this was her view for the day...
