Christie and Clint were married at the Amberian Peaks Lodge in Greer on June 13th.  Christie initially contacted us last August, on the first day of our trip to Hawaii for our own wedding as a matter of fact.  I was driving the road to Hana (a very desolate road) and actually had to pull into a local park to talk to her because we kept breaking up :-).  We hit it off immediately on the phone and we have been looking forward to this wedding ever since!

 

We adore the White Mountains, especially in early June when everything is springing to life and the meadows are covered in wild purple irises.  Greer is one of the most beautiful of all the small towns that dot this vast natural area.  I was soooo excited when Christie said they would be having their wedding there!

 

When we showed up it was pouring rain and things looked quite bleak as far as the weather was concerned.  Christie and Clint were troopers though and didn't let it bother them in the least.  When it was mentioned to Christie that they were planning on moving the ceremony inside, she replied with a determined "NO."  She had decided on the White Mountains (they live in Phoenix) for its natural beauty and nothing was going to stop her from getting married amongst the tall pines - not even torrential rains.  She was kind enough though to check with us to be sure the photo equipment would be OK.  We smiled and told her not to worry about it ... we had protective measures in place for that kind of thing :-).

 

And so the ceremony went on as planned and Mother Nature played nice and 15 minutes before it was to begin, all the rain went away and the skies cleared and it was lovely!  The weather held out the rest of the day and it couldn't have been more perfect.  Christie and Clint, thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers!  It was so wonderful working with you, both at your engagement shoot and at your wedding.  I know you have been eagerly awaiting this posting - enjoy!!

As you can see, the weather didn't look too promising at first.
