[a wedding & a hurricane]

07/11/2012

Let me tell you. This wedding was not only memorable because these two cuties got married (finally! yay!) but also because we all experienced the craziest ten minutes of our lives during (what I keep calling) a hurricane (but it could have just been a really bad thunderstorm).

Mandy and Rob are just lovely. I’m lucky to call them my friends! They’re so cute!

Mandy spent like MILLIONS OF HOURS on details. And everything turned out perfectly.

Mix and match china. She started collecting plates last September. 150 place settings worth (!).

Oh just don’t even ask. These crazies. The only thing that would make this picture better is if Mandy and Rob had been in it but they were way too dressed up and pretty to make such silly faces. =)

SEE. Too pretty! This is right before they walked into the reception as the new Mr. and Mrs Stratmeyer! (I had a really good seat).

Rob’s fist pump. Baha.

Then the hurricane came. Like, we watched it sweep across the open plains (ok so I’m being a little dramatic, but it FELT so dramatic!)

We all ran into the big barn (where the reception was being held) and the doors were all shut tight. The wind kept busy by knocking some tree branches down and giving us all a good scare. (No, I really thought the barn was going to blow away like in the Wizard of Oz. That happened, right?).

Lights went out and never came back on.

And then as quick as it started? It stopped. The sky was GORGEOUS and the corn was a little sideways.

And that was that. WHAT A DAY!

The moral of the story is: Mandy and Rob are married and YAY!

Lovelove.

    Wow, Steph, some great wedding pics as well as powerful storm pics. My goodness, that must have been intense! I bet they’ll never forget their wedding day, nor anyone attending either!
    Looking forward to yours (minus the storm!)
    xoxo lots
