Rainy Day Wedding at the Alerin, St. Johnsbury Vt

 Nobody wants rain on their wedding day, but if it must rain, the Alerin in St. Johnsbury is a great place to be.

 The ceremony had wonderful diffused light and the many umbrellas that stand ready kept everyone nice and dry.  The wedding took place in the new Pavilion.
What a perfect place--with views of horn-pout pond and lush lawns, you get the best of both worlds.  A nice dry roof and an outdoor wedding.

 The officiant was AWESOME, with just the right amount of humour and wit to carry everyone through a very romantic (and teary eyed) recitation of hand written vows.

 And then, the bride and groom were fantastic.  They had given so much thought and injected so much fun into their wedding just with their personalities.

 This was one group that wouldn't let a little rain dampen their spirits.  The Alerin has large porches so we could take pictures without getting wet.

 Like I said, the bride and groom were fantastic.  A lot of people won't go outside in a wedding dress...lest the hem get wet.  Unfortunately this makes the pictures dull.
 This bride and groom knew that this is their one and only wedding and were ready to take on the elements and celebrate their marriage.  It never fails that the people who are the most willing get the best pictures!

 Heaven forbid it rains on your wedding, but if it does, don't let it put a damper on things.  If you are lucky, you'll only get married once.  Make it a great day!
