Anna and Trevor // Rainy Fall Charleston, WV Wedding

Anna and Trevor have known each other since middle school and have some pretty amazing throwback pics at Trevor's senior prom. Besides the incredible fall bouquet and Anna's beautiful dress, my favorite part about this wedding day was the cheerful attitude of the couple despite numerous things not going as planned.  We originally had an hour set apart to take photos in downtown Charleston with their wedding party, but it ended up pouring freezing rain the ENTIRE day- not letting up for a second. We compromised and took some shots outside the hotel under a dry overhang. The outdoor ceremony was moved indoors, things ran behind, and the trolley that was transporting the bride and groom and huge wedding party broke down on the way from the ceremony to the reception! Any one of those things could lead a bride to be overwhelmed with the stress, but Anna and Trevor were just so happy to finally be married and were down to make things work as long as they could be together.  I think this is a great example of why it's nice to plan a first look with your partner ahead of time- you never know what mishaps are going to push your schedule behind! I also think we got some beautiful portraits of the couple despite the weather (I mean... this couple is completely gorgeous in any setting). Rain on your wedding day is 100% good luck. (And if you're planning a wedding in West Virginia, there's a good chance you'll get some of that luck.)
