To say that the weather was a concern for Kristen and Jason's wedding on Hilton Head was an understatement. Eight months before their wedding, a hurricane hit Hilton Head and downed several hundred thousand trees. These trees were then piled at their original venue. Consequently, their original venue had no choice but to cancel on them. Plan two was to have their wedding at Sea Pines, on the south end of Hilton Head.
I had a conversation with the bride a few days before the wedding, who was watching the wether report for her wedding day with great concern. I tried to reassure her that of the 350 or so weddings I've done, only about three have ever been just completely rained out. Then the day of the wedding came, and it was absolutely pouring. Was I worried about it? No. You see, I've seen enough days like this to know that the pictures are still going to turn out beautiful. Rainy days give beautiful, even lighting. There are always sheltered places to shoot. And eventually, it's going to stop raining, and when that happens, the sky is going to be dramatic. All of that happened. Even though they ended up needing to have the ceremony indoors rather than on the 18th green, their couples pictures turned out awesome. Here are just of few of their pictures, finishing with a shot with the receding storm in the background.
