Always Be Prepared When Planning Outdoor Weddings!

Two weekends ago I had the opportunity to do a beautiful wedding that took place at the Burlingame Country Club in the Hillsborough Hills. Everything was in place. The flowers were ordered.  Nothing could go wrong, except for maybe the weather! The forecast was calling for rain and their ceremony and cocktail hour was mostly planned for outdoors. 
I met with the bride's mother two days before the wedding and we planned how we would move things indoors if the weather turned bad.
This made me realize that every bride and groom should have a plan B if they are having an outdoor wedding. Living in the bay area we are accustomed to having sunny weather in the month of May-September. Unfortunately mother nature doesn't always cooperate!
Well in the case of my clients, they were lucky. Their outdoor ceremony was a complete success with the sun even making an appearance for a couple of hours.

Then as the guests moved into the tented candlelight reception area, the rain started. The pitter-patter of rain completed the romantic feel of this garden wedding. It was nature's way of setting the mood!
Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed working on this wedding!
