From the Photographer:
They say that rain is lucky on your wedding day. The actual saying states that it is the washing away of the old in order to bring in the new. I quite like that sentiment. We actually thought that it would rain the entirety of Paisley and Chris’s wedding day. The days leading up to the big day were plagued with worry because there was no rain plan at the venue. The chance of rain was 100% as a large storm system was predicted to come through. Because of that, we actually decided to do Paisley and Chris’s first look in a very non-traditional way. We did it the day before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, we watched the radar with bated breath. Slowly but surely, the chance of rain came down and down and down. It looked like we might get lucky and not actually have any rain. Well, it did rain. Just after the ceremony, as family pictures were occurring, a massive storm broke over the venue. We all rushed inside the barn. Man did it rain!! That was without a doubt the worst storm that I have been through during a wedding. But it was all worth it for the gorgeous rainbow and the amazing sunset that we had. Everything happens for a reason and it all works together to create the perfect day.
From the Bride:
We met at a Travis Tritt concert. It was both last minute plans for us. The crowd literally parted when our eyes first met. We’ve talked everyday since. It was a Tuesday night and I (Paisley) ran to chickfila to grab dinner and I knew Chris had to work late so I decided to surprise him and take him dinner. My intentions were to eat and have him watch the show Pretty Little Liars with me but when I got to his house he had other plans. He began to act strange and said that I may not want to ever marry him because he was probably going to annoy me for the rest of our lives. I though nothing of it. Then he proceeded to play a divorce commercial he had heard telling me about the divorce rates in America. If you know Chris this is just how he always acts. I went along with his divorce conversation and when it ended I got ready to watch TV, but when I turned around there was Chris down on one knee asking me to be his wife.
Chris and I made our guest bench. It was my first time using a drill. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and he took me to home depot and we got the materials and built it, painted it and got the decal. Just another this we got to do for the wedding and spend time together doing it.
