The idea of a rainy wedding day is an idea no bride likes to entertain…and being rained on literally as you say your vows? I daresay most would think of that as a bad thing, but when the forecast called for summer showers on Kathryn and Derek’s Southport wedding day, they admirably decided to embrace whatever the skies sent their way. Sure enough, Kathryn and Derek, as well as all of their guests, were soaked through by the end of their ceremony, but I imagine that sharing their first kiss as husband and wife in the pouring rain made it all worth it!

Thanks so much to our friends at Blueberry Creative for sharing this sweet video with us!

From the bride:

Throughout the entire wedding morning, we kept a close eye on the possibility of an afternoon rain shower–a regular occurrence during summer months at the North Carolina coast. With no “plan B,” we knew whatever was coming our way, we would have to embrace. And during the ceremony, we did just that.

While exchanging our vows, the small drips of rain we began to feel on our shoulders quickly transitioned to a full-out summer shower. In that moment, with the rain pouring down and our guests huddling under umbrellas or running off to gather under the back porch, we just laughed and knew that it was simply meant to be. This was by far our most memorable moment, not only for the obvious reasons, but also for the way that it set the tone for the rest of our night. Some couples may not be able to imagine what they would do if it rained on their wedding day, but looking back, we wouldn’t change a thing.

    I love that everyone was happy and soaked by the end of the ceremony! Rain shouldn’t get in the way on your wedding day, only adds to it!

I can’t think of a sweeter way to start the weekend than with this wedding film. Not only are Paizley and Sidney a gorgeous couple, they are also so clearly smitten with each other! I love that their video includes a few of their post-wedding thoughts, and the way he looks at her couldn’t be more precious. Trade your peppermint mocha for a glass of sweet tea for a few minutes, and sit a spell with this video by our Blue Ribbon Vendor friends, Blueberry Creative!

From the bride:

We knew the day we started dating that we wanted to get married. We fell in love and felt that the Lord had brought us the right person and made it clear He wanted us to get married. We chose August 24 to say our vows, which was the most blessed and perfect day we have ever had!

There were so many incredible details in our wedding, but the one irreplaceable thing was our ceremony site. We held the ceremony between two rows of old Southern oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss. The trees had grown so high that they met in the middle above us to create what we called “our outdoor chapel.” We brought in antique church pews to really make the old plantation feel like a church. I’m not sure if you can get more Southern than that! Before the ceremony, my momma gave me my first real pearl necklace. I wore it during the wedding and I plan to pass it down to my daughter on her wedding day. The Citadel Sword Arch served at the wedding by creating the sword arch that we walked under leaving the ceremony. They were quite charming in their uniforms, which haven’t changed since the Civil War era. My thirteen bridesmaids and I wore corset dresses–we felt like true antebellum Southern ladies, fanning ourselves all day!

We had our reception outside the white plantation house, using both the porch and patio. The food was low country-inspired, with shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, and sweet potato biscuits. One of my favorite Southern traditions at the wedding was shag dancing! Sidney and I (along with all our friends) are crazy about shag dancing–who could grow up in the coastal Carolina area and not be? We played classic shag music all night and the dance floor stayed full! I don’t think you can have a true Charleston wedding without spinning to “With This Ring.”
