Farm Haven Spring Wedding


April 16, 2023

Jenny and Daniel’s wedding at Farm Haven was one I had been looking forward to for months! The weather was not ideal, but it did not dampen the joy and excitement of these two! It was a rainy and cold day for their wedding, but they did not complain once. As you can see in the photos they were so happy to be celebrating with friends and family. They were thrilled to be getting married no matter what the weather did!

Tips for if it rains on your wedding day…

As a photographer, I’ve been to my fair share of rainy weddings, and I’ve learned a few tips and tricks along the way to help make the most of the situation. So, here are my top 10 tips for planning and handling rain on your wedding day:

  1. Embrace it – First and foremost, remember that rain can actually make for some pretty amazing photo opportunities! So, don’t be afraid to embrace the rain and have some fun with it.
  2. Be prepared – Make sure you have some umbrellas and raincoats on hand for you and your wedding party. It’s also a good idea to have some towels and a few extra pairs of shoes, just in case.
  3. Have a backup plan – If you were planning on having an outdoor ceremony or reception, make sure you have a backup indoor location in case of rain. Your photographer can help you scout out some alternate photo locations as well.
  4. Adjust your timeline – Rain can slow things down a bit, so be sure to factor that into your timeline. Allow extra time for getting ready, transportation, and photo sessions.
  5. Trust your photographer – Your photographer is there to document your day, rain or shine. Trust their expertise and let them guide you through the process. Umbrella photos at night with the raindrops sparkling in the background are some of my favorites
  6. Use props – If you have some clear umbrellas or rain boots, use them as props in your photos. They can add a fun and unique touch to your images.
  7. Be flexible – Rain can be unpredictable, so be prepared to make some adjustments to your plans if needed. This might mean moving your ceremony inside or changing up your photo locations.
  8. Stay positive – Remember that rain is just a small part of your wedding day. Don’t let it get you down – stay positive and enjoy every moment!
  9. Take advantage of the lighting – Overcast skies can actually create some really beautiful and soft lighting for photos. Your photographer can use this to their advantage to create some stunning images.
  10. Have fun – Above all else, remember to have fun! Rain or shine, your wedding day is a celebration of love and commitment. So, enjoy the moment and make some memories that will last a lifetime.

I hope these tips help you plan and handle rain on your wedding day! Just remember, the rain can’t stop the love and joy that will be present on your big day. And, with a little preparation and flexibility, you can still have an amazing wedding and beautiful photos to cherish forever.
