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!

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.
