I love a good wedding story and last weekend's wedding definitely was a story in the making. Saturday started off as a beautiful day. I took Libby into town to get her hair done and as we were walking back to our resort to get dressed, we ran into the groom and his guys. They were headed towards the gondola for some mountain top photos and they all looked dapper!
Since they wedding was on a ranch at the top of a mountain, the bride and groom had arranged for shuttles to escort the guests to and from the ranch. I got on the first shuttle with my sister in law and her family, my 2 kids, the other flower girl and the ring bearer. It was a 30 minute ride from the resort to the ranch and we were expecting no problems. About 10 minutes into our ride a torrential rainstorm started and it only got worse. About 1/2 mile from the wedding site, the road had washed away and our shuttle slid off the road. We were forced to all climb out the drivers door (the only way out) and walk to last 1/2 mile in the rain.
even the bride and groom had to walk in the rain.
despite the rain, the tent was absolutely beautiful.
My soon to be sister in law had her heart set on getting married outside, so they opened the bar...
passed out flip flops for all the guests, and waited
3 hours later, it looked like the rain was not going to stop so it was time to get married.
the bride got her wish and she was married outside!!
then it was time for the eating and dancing to begin...
Eventually the rain stopped and we got 1 family photo outside...
and the most beautiful backdrop
I just love weddings and this one goes down in the books!
