Marcie's Bridals... umbrella and all.

It just wasn't enough that it rained the whole day of Marcie & Ed's engagement session-- it had to pour on the day of her bridals as well. We had planned for splitting our session time between The Gallery (Marcie's wedding venue) and Rice University, but decided to skip Rice since we were having a torrential downpour.

Since she had already scheduled her hair and makeup with Hues by Heather (beautiful job, Heather!), we opted not to reschedule and instead make the best of it... I couldn't have been more pleased with the way our session turned out! While we were shooting indoors, the rain subsided (but of course that wonderful cloudcover stayed and gave us beautiful diffused light)and we were able to utilize some of the great outdoor spaces at The Gallery. Marcie was absolutely stunning in a vintage-inspired beaded lace gown, adorned with some fabulous handmade jewelry and a simple fingertip veil.

Marcie and Ed were married this weekend. As luck would have it, for the large display at the reception Marcie chose one of the images where she's holding an umbrella-- quite appropriate since it was very windy and sprinkling as the outdoor ceremony began. Many guests in their seats had already opened umbrellas! The ceremony stayed dry, but just as they were pronounced husband and wife the sky let loose with a giant clap of thunder. It'll be a great story ; )
