It's Like Rain on Your Wedding Day...

A few weekends ago, we headed down to Destin, FL for Bob's BFF's wedding. We arrived late Friday night, searching for the condo in what I would call hurricane-like weather! The rain was pelting the windows sideways, and coming down hard. Unfortunately, this was a preview of things to come...

Mike (Bob's brother from another mother), and his now-wife, Brandi planned a beautiful wedding. While the guest list was small, at under 20 people, the wedding incorporated everything you'd see at a large-scale wedding and reception.

A beautiful beach ceremony, at sunset was planned. But, this was what the weather looked like...

It looks like there were waves of water on the condo/resort's terrace. Sadly, it basically got to that point.

So, in an effort to get those nuptials ON, the ceremony was moved indoors.

All the kiddo's in attendance:

So, this picture pretty much sums up how the reception went. It was hellishly windy, rainy, and storming. Everyone was a good sport, and grinned and beared it. (Side note: the reception was outside, under a tent).

The floor started to flood.

Umbrellas were opened.

Pants were rolled up.

Eek!!! Look at the bride's gown!

Finally, after dinner, and during the first dances, lighting struck just a little too close to home. The party was moved indoors, with the cutting of the cake and toasts.

With the torrential downpour these two experienced on their wedding day; they are going to have the best luck in their marriage.

Congrats to Mike and Brandi!
