What a day of ups and downs for these two! The morning was beautiful and calm but as Alicia was getting her hair done, the skies opened up and thunderstorms rolled in. As the hours passed and the storms continued to bring heavy rain, wind and lightening, the anxiety began to build. Their outdoor ceremony had no contingency plan.
The preparations carried on, and as Alicia got into her dress, the sky began to clear. The steady rain that had been present for two hours became a slight drizzle and then, nothing. As Alicia made her big entrance, umbrellas started to close and guests began to venture out from under the safety of the tent.
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it did.
About 10 minutes into the ceremony, the sun began to shine. And just like that, these two had the ceremony that they had always wanted. It was said that a few special family members up above were pushing through those clouds to shine their love down on Alicia and Virgil and I’d have to agree that it was nothing short of a miracle.
Their beautiful day took place at The Massena Country Club, right on the St. Lawrence River. The rain held off through portraits and we got inside just before another rain shower passed through!
And, as if we hadn’t had enough luck throughout the day, we were blessed with a stunning sunset to put the cherry on top for these two!
Alicia and Virgil, thank you so much for choosing us to be part of your big day! Happy honeymooning!
