ooooo, remember that odd week Virginia had the earthquake AND Hurricane Irene within days of each other? Well, Travis and Diana got married that weekend! That wet wet windy weekend. Diana is a planner, and had been planning and looking forward to having a beautiful outdoor wedding at a local venue when plans changed and moved everything indoors. She'd been hoping for those sunny, warm, lovey-dovey photos you get outdoors for her wedding! Well, since there was no way the sun was going to pop it's head through the thick clouds that day, we scheduled an after session! YAAAY!! I'm totally biased for after sessions. I love them and SOOO wish more couples did them! Having portraits done when you've been married just a few weeks or even for a couple years is such a special time to have your relationship captured. Overabundance of joy and excitement to FINALLY be married and be together! Marriage is the best. Have I mentioned that?! BEING MARRIED IS AWESOME!! AHHHHHHH!!! hahahaha

don't think I've heard more excitement at a wedding reception than I did when the power came back on. It was like everyone's favorite football team won the superbowl x 1,000. It was insane! GAH! Probably my favorite moment of the day...it just summed it all up into one huge moment of relief. And for that, Hurricane Irene, we thank you. (If you know where this phrase is from, comment below! I'll just be impressed!)
I'd say, if you can re-plan a wedding in just a few short days, and get married during a hurricane, you are ready to handle anything life throws your way. This is exactly what Travis and Diana did. Their outdoor wedding got moved indoors to Diana's home church...she told me, "Maybe this is just God's way of telling me He wanted me to get married in the church!" With the help of some amazing friends and family, they were able to get married the same day Hurricane Irene happened to roll into town.
