It rained all morning and most of the afternoon on David + Kay's wedding day. I can't lie and say that it didn't add an extra layer of stress, considering the beautiful outdoor ceremony Kay had envisioned- but what is most amazing about how the rain affected this day is that it only made things better. Spirit Ranch (one of my favorite venues here in Lubbock) was transformed into this moody, romantic, intimate place with the cloud cover. Thankfully, David and Kay were up for shooting outside in the sprinkles and it made for some beautiful images. The wetness did force us inside for the ceremony, but it also forced us all to remember what was most important- that these two would be married, and that their friends and family were all there to see it.
These two are true artisans, and incorporated much of their own music into their day. David wrote and performed a song to propose to Kay, which they also danced to- and each of them also wrote and recorded songs for their parents, which was played during those dances. It was very special.
Did I mention I love October weddings? If not, I do. I love the colors, the cool in the air, and the people. Brides- please get married in October. And don't be afraid to walk in the wet leaves. That's where the best pictures are. :)
