Rainy Forsyth Mini Shoot: Tips for a rainy wedding day

We love being by the coast, nothing can beat sandy beaches and gorgeous sunsets. But being by the coast also means we tend to get a lot of rain, especially in the spring and summer. (And as we well know, hurricanes!) But today we wan't to focus on the positive: How to make a rainy day the best day for your wedding! Our friend Wendy at Apt B Photography had a rainy day for her mini shoot with Jessica & Matt, and she made the best of it! The couple walked around Forsyth park, with a clear umbrella and smiles on their faces (and a boutique by Ivory & Beau!)

1. Umbrellas: We love clear umbrellas, since they keep you dry and get awesome pictures! Wendy used a clear umbrella for Jessica & Matt's shoot, and it wasn't distracting at all. It allowed you to see each of them, and made for a cute prop. You can rent umbrella's for all of your guests (Try Amazing Event Rentals!) or just get a handful for those taking pictures outside. 

2. Rain Backup: The most important part of keeping a rainy day wedding successful: A good rain back up plan! No matter when your wedding is, we always reccomend a rain back up. Whether you get married in the reception venue, or rent a tent, having a solid plan is important. This way you can stress less the night before if you have to use the rain back up plan, and know that it is all taken care of. 

3. Rain boots & Jacket: Your wedding dress is a valuable piece of the day! Make sure to protect it with a rain jacket (a hood is a plus!). We also reccomend rain boots! Rain boots and a wedding dress can be an oh-so-cute combo, and your feet will thank us later! 

4. A Good Attitude: The most important part? A good attitude! Rain might not be ideal, but this is still a special day, filled with love and the people you care about most. Focus on the happy part, that you are getting married! Regardless of the weather, you will have an amazing day, that we can promise.

Amber & Shawn

Amber was such a dream Ivory & Beau bride! She drove up from Florida looking for an experience she couldn't get in Jacksonville, and knew she wanted a gown that was more relaxed and bohemian for her outdoor wedding. The minute she tried on Hannah by Ti Adora, she knew it was the one. It features a sheer illusion top, lace detailing, and the prettiest blush color! Once she got the gown from us, she knew she wanted us to do the flowers too! We went down to Florida, and created her vision of blush, burgundy, and lush greenery. Her bouquet was one of my favorites we have done, especially with the hanging ribbon! 

Amber and Shawn got married at The Casements, overlooking the Halifax River. Their ceremony and reception both took place outdoors, with cafe lights lighting up the dancefloor, and the most gorgeous sunset (that made for incredible pictures!) A huge thank you to the couple, who let us be apart of their special day!

Jen & Vince

You guys. The minute I saw this venue, (Adrienna here!) I knew this was a place I would want to get married at! I've always dreamed of a mountain wedding, overlooking water, with farm animals in attendance. Jen & Vince's wedding was a dream come true! Their venue is High Hampton Inn in North Carolina, and is breathtaking! When Jen was looking for a gown, she took her venue into consideration. She wanted something that was light weight, flowy, and easy to move around in for pictures. And her Ti Adora choice was perfect! She altered the straps to from criss cross to straight back, and it's such a great update! And it fit her like a glove! Their wedding had touches of blush, bright pops of color, and lot's of greenery, which worked in the outdoor setting. Congratulations to Jen and Vince!
