From time to time, I've done a bit of wedding planning for friends or friends of friends. And the first wedding I ever worked on took place back when my first hurricane rolled right into DC - and I spent the entire morning of trying to scour whatever candles were left in the greater DC area for the sunset ceremony. And I have a special place in my heart for any one that gets rain on their wedding day since it rained on ours...No...it poured. Not a hurricane, but pretty much a wall of water. On what was supposed to be a lovely sunny day in Poland, or at least, that's what I had been promising people.
But no matter - things like rain on your wedding day might ruin some plans, but it also brings good luck (I choose to believe that as a rainy day bride) as well as a strange opportunity to have a memorable event. This couple, featured in the Washingtonian, was scheduled to get married this past weekend during the Irene hoopla, and looks like they took it in stride. And that picture with the umbrellas - that's what they'll show people for years to come. We certainly do.
