Wet Weather Doesn't Dampen the Spirits of This Wonderful Wedding

If the saying is true that rain on your wedding day is good luck, then Julia and Phil are off to a great start. The couple got married in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony that took place at the bride's parents' lake house.  Surrounded by family, friends, and a few clouds, the couple said "I Do." This beautiful event, as captured by Joe Hang Photography, had many thoughtful DIY touches. Still everything felt elegantly elevated thanks to the personal touches of Lydia Mladenovic, The M Group's president and lead wedding coordinator...not to mention, the bride's mother. 

While it rained on and off thoughout the couple's big day, the storm really hit during the reception. The combo of thunderstorms and metal tents had some seeking shelter, while others continued to dance the night away despite inches of water and muddy surfaces Guests were soaked, but all looked to have a great time. Rain definitely did dampen this delightful day.

From the photographer:

As I sit here and think about what just happened on this July Saturday I truly am at a lost for words.  Did I just witness this gorgeous backyard ceremony overlooking a lake or witness a fairy tale of a southern boy falling for a northern girl, or a bunch of crazy people dancing underneath a storm while the band had to find shelter because the roar of thunderstorms were a little too close for comfort while all being staged in a metal tent and the ground soaked in a few inches of water?  There’s usually something that goes wrong at a wedding right?  Is this still all a dream?  Pinch!  Yeah it was for real, and it was perfect!
