Rain on your wedding day is a good thing

Rain on your wedding day can be better than a bright, sunny, cloudless day! Don't believe me...keep reading to find out why!

Cloudy skies highlight the natural colours of you and your surrounding and make the colours appear more vibrant rather than washed out. Having a sky full of clouds (with or without rain) also creates softer shadows which are easier to photograph and film under rather than harsh, direct light from the sun.

Rain also gives the day a fresh feel and a calming vibe. The aroma of nature can be enjoyed more and the senses of your guests will be heightened. Rain drops also look great on camera and the cooler weather unconsciously makes the couple snuggle closer together for warmth, creating more natural, romantic and intimate moments for photographers and videographers to capture.

Also, umbrellas, can we take a minute to stay how romantic it is to see a couple together under the same umbrella! 

Dan and Cassandra were married at Silvertip Resort this past July and they had a mix of sun, then a heavy downpour and some light rain in between. A couple of my favorite shots from their teaser video included rain; the light rain drops on the turquoise pond and the rain falling on them when they are walking together with their umbrella. Take a look and see for yourself, rain is a good thing on your wedding day!
