Jessica & Paul

Our wedding season started off with a bang! Friday, June 6th, Jessica and Paul were married at the Grand Ledge Opera House. The day started off very promising with the ladies portraits at 3:30pm in the bright (very hot) sun. By the time the gentlemen arrived at 4:30, the clouds were rolling in and the facilities management decided to bring the chairs inside to avoid them getting wet. At this point, the couple was conisdering an indoor ceremony on the Terrace Level. After the portraits with the guys, the rain, thunder and lightning began, pushing the ceremony indoors and also upstairs to the ballroom level. It was all going well, with help from the bridal party setting up the last minute location change until the power went off, the generators kicked on, and then the fire alarm went off! We had to wait another 45 minutes for the Fire Department to arrive and shut down the alarms. The ceremony started about an hour late, but the bride and groom were not even phased by all the chaos. The rest of the night went off without a hitch, and we even got to take outdoor portraits after the storm! What an amazing couple, and I am sure I will never forget this wedding.
