It had rained the day prior to Margo and Mark’s wedding in Durham, California and the morning of. Margo’s hair and makeup were complete and she was taking a moment as she looked over her vows. The thunder rumbled in the distance. We looked up into the sky and saw clouds threatening to come our direction. We decided to move the First Look up by a few minutes to, hopefully, avoid any rainfall.
Mark was standing in his First Look position with his back to Margo. Margo slowly made her way towards her soon-to-be husband. She was full of smiles as she tapped him on his left shoulder. Mark turned around to be greeted by Margo and all of her beauty on their wedding day. As they embraced, they each tried to keep their emotions in check; but they both failed. A wedding day can be stressful, and the First Look allowed for all of Margo and Mark’s stress to melt away as they saw each other for the first time. The smiles on their faces and the look in their eyes were all that was needed to prove that true love exists.
The thunder and lightning did greet Margo and Mark as they were taking pictures with their bridal party. It poured down rain! But as the clouds parted, the sunshine kissed Margo and Mark for the remainder of their wedding day. Through thunder, lightning, wind, and rain, Margo and Mark’s love will not be weakened. Rain on your wedding day is good luck! Margo and Mark also had a rainy engagement picture day. You can view their engagement blog post here.
Margo and Mark, I was truly honored to be a part of your wedding. Your family and friends love you both so much! All of the speeches were spoken from the heart. Each and every person at your wedding made me feel loved. I felt like I was a guest at your wedding. You brought me to tears through your wedding vows with the apology letter, thank you letter, and love letters. You two are a wonderful couple, and I am so excited for you to start your journey of marriage together. I hope you enjoy some of my many favorites from your wedding day! May each day be better than the last!
