Real Weddings: Tim & Kacy, Rain in the Park

My husband's best friend got married over the weekend.  The ceremony was scheduled for 3:00pm on Saturday, and at about 2:45, it started to rain.  A drizzle at first, the ceremony was postponed for a few minutes to see if things would let up.  There was no plan B for rain (the forecast that day hadn't called for a storm) and when the rain subsided, the groomsmen wiped the white chairs dry and guests hurried into their seats.  

The first notes of Pachelbel's Canon floated into the air and at the same moment heavy raindrops began to fall from the sky, much harder than before.  Not a single guest stood up from their seat and without skipping a beat, the bride walked down the aisle with a smile on her face.  These two were married under a pink umbrella, and from the look on their faces, they wouldn't have had it any other way.

I guess coming from a planner, the moral of the story would be to be prepared for the unexpected.  At this wedding, I wasn't a planner, though. I was a guest and a friend of the couple and even though it rained, I have never seen these two more happy.  Weather is a great metaphor for marriage - sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.

Congratulations Tim & Kacy!
