plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

No, I’m not going to talk about my bling.  I’m talking about this bling.

Most brides don’t want it to rain on their wedding day, but I say: 1. Rain is good luck on a wedding day and 2. How gorgeous is this ring shot? Wouldn’t have gotten that shot without the rain!

And, for any East Coast brides out there, Tony is a great Philly photographer. I found his work through a gal I work through/with at my job. I recommend him if you’re in the area!


  1. I have seen some great shots that happened because of a rainy wedding day. I saw one where they had a rosary hanging on a clothes line (old wives tale: supposed to get rid of the rain), rainbows and some great umbrella shots!

    Remember: it’s your wedding day! It is the start of the rest of your life with this person! Nothing should put a damper (get it?) on your day!

    It really did rain on their wedding day. And I’m okay with a little rain, nothing will put a damper (for your Sarah) on our day! Plus, like I said, it’s good luck to rain!

  4. What a beautiful picture!!
