One of the most stressful things for brides is picking a date. I hear it all the time. Dates picked for sentimental reasons, or in hopes of a perfectly clear blue sky day. The reality is (especially in Nova Scotia) that not all brides are going to have the day they envisioned in their heads for months or even years.
The important things to know? Number one, photography always looks better with overcast, and sometimes those dreary blowing days result in the most stunning photos you've ever seen. One of the reasons you hire professional photographers, makeup artists and hairstylists, is they know how to handle storm days. They have the proper tools to ensure that through the strongest of winds and the rain, that you will look absolutely flawless through all of it. (Like Ella Michel did for these photos!)
My bride Heidi is a perfect example. Last Saturday it rained so much, at one point I thought the province might just float away. It's important to remember, that no matter the weather, you are getting married! All of the dating, and stories leading up to this day are going to result in you saying I do to the love of your life. I urge all brides to trust the process, do those crazy things your photographer asks you to do! Jump in that puddle, embrace your hair blowing around, because trust me, the photos will be worth it!
Besides the old age "rain is good luck on your wedding day" which is something I try not to say to brides as it comes off wrong to me for some reason, just sit back, take a breath and remember that this is your day! The weather will only make for great photos and a lifelong story for you and your new partner!
I always want every bride to have the day she has dreamed of forever, but when it comes down to it, the day is the day. There is nothing you can do about it, so enjoy your day and remember all the hard work you've put in to get here!
