Marty & David’s wedding was a cozy and romantic day! Their day was rainy, and this blog post should be about how rain is okay. I think rain on the wedding day is every bride’s worst nightmare. And I totally get that — you’ve planned this day for so long and you’ve had a certain idea in your head. I’ve been there! But fortunately, Marty & David had a beautiful rain plan for their portraits, and I am so grateful for that! Read on to see what they did. Not only that, but they also had such great attitudes about the rain. We loved being downtown Raleigh wedding photographers for Marty & David!
Their story was so sweet. Marty & David have been together for a really long time, and so their wedding day was such a special celebration. It was such a huge honor to photograph it for them. Marty and her girls got ready at The Glass Box. If you’ve never seen The Glass Box, it is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a space in downtown Raleigh that is floor to ceiling windows. It’s a really fun spot to get ready at, but Marty & David also were able to use the space for some of their portraits later in the day. We had a small break in the rain to do wedding party portraits outside during cocktail hour. But when the rain picked back up, we headed back to The Glass Box for some gorgeous indoor bride & groom portraits.
Their wedding day was classic. Marty wore her mom’s veil, and the whole day was a lovely celebration of family. Rain and all, their day was cozy and warm and filled with joy. It was so special to photograph. I want every bride to know that their day is perfect, regardless of the weather or regardless of any detail that goes amiss. Your wedding day is about you two as a couple and your love story. Marty & David — thank you for letting us be your downtown Raleigh wedding photographers.
