To any bride who thinks a cloudy or stormy day on her wedding day is a bad thing - think again!  As long as it isn't pouring, those storm clouds can add drama and saturate colors beyond your wildest dreams.  It also lends a soft light to faces, making for lovely, evenly lit portraits.  In fact, some of the most stunning and powerful wedding photos we have taken were captured on those dreaded stormy days.

 

Case in point, the wedding of Sara and Drew.  They were married September 12th, 2009 in an outdoor ceremony at Red Rock Crossing surrounded by family, friends, their dogs ... and storm clouds heralding thunder and spewing lightning bolts in every direction.  Fortunately it never rained more than a few drops during the ceremony and formal photos afterwards, and boy did it deliver a boatload of great images!  The only scare came while getting ready.  The bottom did fall out, complete with torrential rain and hail all worthy of starting another great flood.  It soon waned and all was good for the rest of the day.

 

As you can easily tell from the photos, two key players in this wedding were Sara and Drew's ridiculously cute dogs, Cookie, the chihuahua, and Chili, the daschund.  Also of great importance was the attendance of Sara's grandparents, which was very touching.  Thank you both so much!  Sara, you were a stunning bride and Drew, you kept us laughing all day.  We had such a great time and absolutely fell in love with those adorable dogs of yours :-).

 

Oh, I almost forgot the big story of the day!  As Sara was taking her walk down the aisle with her parents, it became clear that some big revelation had hit Drew like a ton of bricks.  No, it wasn't that he was about to leave the single life behind or anything like that ... Drew forgot the ring.  Oooops!  He muttered under his breath, "She's going to kill me."  Sara was great though and just laughed it off when the time came.  It was so sweet too as everyone started offering their rings to Drew to use in lieu of the real thing.  Just after arriving to Agave of Sedona for the reception, Drew prompty held out the real ring, humbly presenting it to Sara and placing it on her finger. Disaster averted.  Good recovery Drew :-)!!
