plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

That’s right.

They say March is supposed to come in like a lion and out like a lamb, but I think Mother Nature missed the point this year.  Instead, March was welcomed with gorgeous weather and wonderful temperatures.  The end of March? Not so much.  St. Louis welcomed 4 inches of snow (thundersnow, nonetheless) the last Saturday in March.  Which brings me to the story of Kurt and Christina.  Their videographer shared with me their wonderful Same Day Edit.

From Jimmy at Captured in Frames:
We wake up Saturday morning and head to the salon in Highland, IL. So far no rain. No snow. At noon we head to Busch [Stadium] and just as we’re driving past Collinsville the flakes begin to fall ever so softly. Then at 1:45, minutes before the ceremony starts, the coordinator at Busch, Kristen, walks into the dressing room as Christina is slipping into her dress. She says something along the lines of “This is your last chance to move the ceremony inside. The snow is coming down really hard out there, it’s insane.” Christina didn’t give it a second thought. “I’m getting married at home plate” she says. The rest is history.

It was really just an amazing experience for all of us: Kurt and Christina, the family and friends, and even us videographers! That’s something we’re never going to experience again, ever. It is truly one of those weddings that we are going to talk about for the rest of our lives. How many people can actually say they got married at home plate Busch Stadium during a blizzard.

And, now, for that video.  Glimpses of this video and wedding were all over the news last week, and even made appearances on The Weather Channel.  I have never seen a wedding ceremony quite like this. It’s beautiful and romantic all wrapped in one.
