Rain all day. There wasn't a moment in the day where it wasn't raining. The Bride and Groom had such a go-with-the-flow attitude towards it that there was sunshine all day. I was really wishing for some sunshine since their engagement session was a cold and cloudy day also. However, we took this moment at the end of the night, away from the craziness of the reception dancing, to cool off and light up the rain. What you're not seeing, is the bride is actually barefoot in the late October rain!
It's basically a pipe dream to have perfect weather on a wedding day. Though it does happen where the skies open, the planets align and champagne rains from the heavens to give the perfect temperature and clear skies. Inclement weather does happen, and more often than people realize. A good 'go with the flow' attitude will keep the day perfect.
It's always best to prepare for inclement weather. Especially in the Spring and Fall months, but really, every month is unpredictable! Plan ahead! Buy enough clear or color coordinated umbrellas if you still want to gallivant outside. Plan multiple locations for options. Having a rain location and sun location helps tremendously! Is it going to be cold? Plan on a wrap for you and your girls, or include furs. Something to mitigate the chill in the air. Being prepared for every occasion will streamline the whole day should anything come up!
