The Glovers :: Kate + Michael

May 6, 2015  |  Southern Fete News

Burying a bottle of Bourbon. Sprinkling the reception site with Holy water and salt. Collecting rain water to be blessed. We did it all in the week leading up to Kate + Michael’s wedding in hopes that Mother Nature would hold out just long enough for them to get married. It almost worked. The rain held out just long enough for the bridal party to get into the church before the deluge of April 11, 2015 happened.

Although it rained poured that evening, there’s no doubt that all of their guests had the very best time. I mean, have you ever been to a wedding where a Shop-Vac received a round of applause for its efforts to dry off a packed dance floor? I didn’t think so.

There are so many things I could say about this wedding – the amazing vendors who I worked alongside to make a vision that Kate has dreamed of for so long come to life, the support of family and friends through subtle reminders that a tent wedding can be perfect even if it rains, or the lesson that God is ultimately in control regardless of how perfectly planned every last detail is.

I sound like a broken record –  I know – but the collection of photographs Erin and Geoffrey Photography captured is nothing short of amazing. Their attention to detail and creativity continue to amaze me each time we work together, and the grace they tackled the challenges the weather created with was beyond admirable.

With that, I’ll let the photos do the talking.

I think Michael is saying/signing “perfection!”

Kate + Michael – It was a pleasure getting to know you over the past year and bringing your wedding dreams to life – both before and after the rain. Thank you for trusting me with such a very special day in your lives, and I hope that you treasure the magic of 4.11.15 for a lifetime.

Cheers to #gloverpartyoftwo!
