I don’t care what anyone says, photographing a bride and groom in the rain can be awesome. I always tell my couples to have coordinating umbrellas ready for every bridesmaid at the wedding if there is more than a 20% chance of rain on their wedding day. Then each bridesmaid can share their umbrella with a groomsmen, the bride and groom have a cute umbrella for themselves, and I always carry a few in the trunk for myself just in case. Some of my favorite wedding portraits of my career were taken with umbrellas.
Korie and Paul got extra lucky on their wedding day. Not only did they have rain (good luck), but they had off-and-on rain, which allowed us to get their entire bridal party in some portraits at Round Hill Park between showers. They didn’t all have umbrellas, so we were limited to the 5 or 10 minutes of dry skies that we had between the ceremony and the reception. Luckily, we had enough umbrellas in my trunk and the limo to go out and take GORGEOUS portraits of Korie and Paul. Cloudy skies act like a huge softbox diffusing the suns harsh rays, so the lighting was beautiful.
Korie and Paul were married at St. Michael’s church in Elizabeth, PA, with a reception that followed at the South Baldwin Social Hall. Their flowers were designed and created by Flowers with Imagination. The ladies had their hair styled by Stonewater Salon and Spa. The fun beach inspired cake was deliciously created by the Bethel Bakery. The guests danced the night away thanks to the awesome entertainment by Zini Produtions, Mark Zini-owner. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from their day. Oh, and Korie’s Oleg Cassini bridal gown literally brought tears to my eyes when I first took a glimpse at it. It is absolutely brilliant!
