Wedding Inspiration

A Rainy Wedding Day Held a Sunnier Meaning for These Newlyweds

by Brynlee Handy

For some, rain on your wedding day can be a bummer, but we see it as good luck, and Carolyn and Jeremy even found special meaning in the thunder that struck on their rainy wedding day. Planned by Keestone Events and held at the lovely and lush Dallas Arboretum, this English garden-themed wedding is so organic yet refined. Greenery galore from Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe breathe so much life into this elegant affair and elegant crystal decor from Lawson Event Rentals contrast perfectly. Carolyn looks so stunning with hair and makeup artistry by Tease to Please Hair & Makeup that doesn’t budge an inch in the rainy wedding day weather, and her bridal party looks so classy in their blue satin gowns from Bella Bridesmaids in various lovely styles. You can always count on Royal Dukes Band to keep your crowd on the dance floor all night long, and catering and bartending by Gil’s Elegant Catering is sure to send your guests home with a full belly. Read on to hear the bride’s sentimental connection to the weather on her rainy wedding day. Cheers to Carolyn and Jeremy!

From the bride: “My dad loved thunderstorms, and when I was little and would wake up scared because of thunder, he and I would watch them and count the distance between the lightning and thunder. So having a thunderstorm come through before and during our ceremony was very special to me and really made me feel that he was there with us celebrating. In the middle of the ceremony right after Jeremy said, ‘I will,’ there was a huge crack of forked lightning over the lake – I think most people laughed at the timing and idea of my dad emphasizing that statement!”
