One of the things I boast about to my wife and friends is that it has never rained on a wedding ceremony I’ve filmed. I tell brides that whenever the weather looks like rain. Well, that streak almost got washed away on June 18th. It didn’t rain on the ceremony, but it was close.
I was honored to be asked to film Stacie and Josh’s wedding at the beautiful Blackthorn Country Club in Jonesborough, TN. Stacie and I had talked a number of times on the phone before her wedding, but we never met in person until her wedding day. When she arrived, I noticed the amazing smile on her face and you could tell it was her wedding day. Well, as the day went on I noticed, on my iPhone, a line of storms heading our way. It looked pretty nasty and it lived up to it’s potential. The wind blew hard, the rain came down in sheets and the lighting was intense. The whole time, Stacie was in the dressing room getting ready. To say she was stressed is an understatement, but she never let it show and she was set to marry Josh.
Just when I thought it was going to rain on the ceremony, the rain stopped and the clouds broke just enough to let a little sun shine though. The smile on Stacie’s face as she walked down the aisle was priceless. The rest of the day went off without a hitch. The only drawback was the fact that Josh had to leave the next day for flight training. But, they made the best of the day and I have noticed they have taken their honeymoon since and things are going well for them. Here is their trailer. I wish them nothing but the best in their future together.
