Once again this past weekend, the forecast threatened rain for our wedding festivities. As we planned, I reflected back on a wonderful “rain plan” wedding this spring for Sarah & David. They took advantage of Cinco de Mayo falling on the day before their wedding to begin their festivities at the Rand-Bryan House. After their wedding party rehearsed, everyone enjoyed appropriate food and beverages for their rehearsal dinner to celebrate the occasion (check out the colorful pictures of this fun evening). With rain in the forecast, the decision was made to plan on an indoor wedding and reception and the wedding party and family did part of their set up that evening so there would be less to do on the wedding day. The arbor, made by the groom for their ceremony, was just as pretty at the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Rand-Bryan House sunroom as it would have been on the lawn. The wedding day brought showers off and on with enough dry times to get wedding party pictures done on the grounds. Though it was pouring rain as guests arrived, a bright ray of sunshine managed to shine through the window on the bride & groom as they were saying their vows! The transition to the indoor reception went smoothly as tables were set and decorated in the colorful rustic decor that the bride had crafted while guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the porch. A BBQ buffet was a hit with the guests, followed by an evening of dancing and celebrating. Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. White as they begin their married life!
