I was honored to be a part of Sarah + Bryan’s day! You may remember their Fall engagement session, if not, you can see it here! Their wedding was in Virginia Beach, and was supposed to be on the beach. Well… it ended up raining ALL day. They had to change the ceremony to be under a pavilion, and the reception was moved from the rooftop bar to a ballroom.

However, I have never seen a couple who had a better attitude. Some people would be upset and disappointed that it rained out their original wedding plan. But Sarah and Bryan knew it wasn’t about getting married on the beach, but rather about getting to spend the rest of their lives with each other! And as a result, their images are full of such great emotion! Sarah didn’t care that she had to run through the rain to get to the pavilion where they were getting married, she was just excited to see Bryan waiting for her at the end of the aisle.

I was so blessed by all of Sarah and Bryan’s friends and family! It was an incredible day! Even though it rained and we had to be creative with the images, it was a day I will never forget!

Love Bryan’s face as he holds his bride’s hand! Bryan brought Sarah coffee! He is going to be a good husband! :) http://www.jessica-mae.com/wp-admin/media-upload.php?post_id=3493&tab=gallery# Whenever ANYONE cries at a wedding, it always makes me cry too! I can’t help myself! I am way too emotional!  My husband will definitely tell you that :) A few people have asked me how we got these images on the beach when it rained all day. Well, believe it or not, it was still raining here. I was definitely shooting these images out from under an umbrella! Sarah and Bryan were total champs to stand out in it in order to get some amazing shots! I love it when couples are willing to do whatever is necessary to get great pictures! Such a fun reception!
