Brad & Melicia | Neck Point Wedding

wedding signs

โ€œI love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate then when I fall asleep your eyes close.โ€
โ€“ Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Brad & Melicia | Neck Point Wedding

It is said that rain on your wedding day is lucky. I’m sure whoever said that meant well lol
We definitely weren’t expecting rain in August but that’s west coast weather for you ๐Ÿ™‚ That said, Brad & Melicia didn’t let the rain spoil their wedding day or ruin their fun. Almost everyone had an umbrella and managed to stay reasonably dry while they enjoyed a beautiful wedding ceremony at Neck Point.

As you can see in this photo, some of us got a little wetter than others. The rain was coming down sideways and the umbrellas weren’t very effective unless you were sitting down. Thankfully I live close enough to Neck Point that I could dash home and change quickly between photos and the reception!

This was my largest wedding party to date! Maid of honor, bridesmaids, Best man, grooms men, flower girls, sign bearer! Lots of people to pose! It was a fun challenge though and they were all so patient with me while I got everyone where I wanted them. Thankfully we had a little bit of shelter underneath the trees in this spot ๐Ÿ™‚
