before living in NYC, i lived in seattle for 8 years... i never owned an umbrella in seattle... while it does rain often there, it's just more of a drizzle. my first month in nyc, i think rained more than my entire 8 years in the pnw... + i remember being just shocked at the way it could rain here. torrential downpour barely comes close to a description. i had to buy an umbrella that first month, + have used it far more in my short time in ny, than in my 8 year tenure in seattle. anyways, i diverge. nick + rochelle flew all the way from london with 15 of their family members to have a small ceremony in central park. just as they said their 'i do's' the heavens opened + flooded us with a rain shower like no other. now, in the moment of such chaos, you're running around + trying to stay dry, + keep my camera out of the wet + take a few photos in the meantime... it's such a flurry of activity that often, it's not till i sit down to edit, that i can re-live a little slower all that was happening. + the thing that really struck me about nick + rochelle is how happy they are in the photographs. they're simply beaming in every single photograph. despite the fact that their central park ceremony was nearly ruined... + they got completely soaked in their new wedding clothes... they are still so so so happy. i don't often post my shorter wedding ceremonies here... but this one just needed to be shown. so new york. so rainy. + so completely wonderful. rain never has to ruin a good wedding day. xo, brooke p.s. i was thrilled to work with the Reverend Annie again for this ceremony... she's one of my fave! Check her out if you need an amazing + authentic officiant!
