When Sara and Casey were planning their May wedding at The Hawthorne House in Parkville, Missouri, they were counting on pleasant temperatures and plenty of sunshine. They’d expected to have plenty of time outside to take wedding photos in this picturesque location, asked us to have The Photo Bus sitting outside for guests to enjoy taking photo booth photos during the reception, and made lemonade to put in mason jars and an unlimited amount of popcorn and peanuts to go with the baseball theme. Then it rained (and even snowed a little) all. day. long. This uncooperative Missouri spring weather kept everyone inside, but fortunately there was enough light to make everyone glow. The Hawthorne House is a gorgeous location for a wedding, even when it rains due to the wrap around porch and big windows.
We asked Sara for some advice for those who are wedding planning now and here’s what she said:
Enjoy every second of the planning and don’t stress out too much. I put so much work into many little things for the wedding and realized in the end none of it really mattered, only the bride notices the little things. Everything always turns out the day of, because it truly is the best day of your life, even if something doesn’t go the way you thought it would (like the weather!)
Thanks so much to Sara and Casey for letting us be there to document the best day of your life through photographs.
