Chelsea and Justin got married in an intimate Dogwood Downs wedding last month and it was the most beautiful day, even with the rain. When chatting with them a few weeks before the big day, Chelsea mentioned that they never really intended on having a formal ceremony but at the insistence of Justin’s daughter, they decided on a small ceremony at Dogwood Downs with their closest family and friends.
Just before their ceremony was to begin, the rain that had been threatening all day poured from the sky. They didn’t let this get them down though! Chelsea giggled all the way to their covered ceremony spot and Justin was sporting the biggest grin when he saw his bride.
After the ceremony, we were able to duck out between showers to capture some beautiful portraits around the grounds. When the rain started falling again, Dogwood Downs’ sweet porch swing made the perfect alternative.
Like a lot of couples, Chelsea and Justin told me they were awkward in front of the camera but it sure didn’t show! Nothing could have beat that newlywed glow.
