It rained all morning. Not just a bit of rain, but full out thunderstorms. Kelly sat patiently in her room at the Bayside Inn, staring out the window, watching the rain stop but the clouds stay put. Wondering if she should make the call. The call that would move the ceremony from beside the lake at her parents house in Parry Sound, to inside a cute church. She went back and forth, thinking about it. And then she did exactly what I would have done - she called her dad and asked for his advice.
After that, it didn't take long to decide they would take the risk. After picking Kelly and her maid of honour up in his beautifully restored Whippet, they made their way to the ceremony under the big old pines in her parents backyard. Watching Kevin's eyes light up as Kelly & her dad walked down the grassy aisle was inspiring, but that first kiss beside the lake, surrounded by friends and family was one of my favourite moments of any wedding. And although the skies were grey all afternoon, and although it sprinkled a tiny bit during the ceremony, the rain stayed away.
We made use of Kelly's parents gorgeous property, and then headed to the historical Rosseau Memorial Hall for an amazingly delicious dinner from Now That's Catering. And as loved ones stood up to speak after dinner, the rain finally fell, echoing off the roof.
