Kim & Mitch’s Soft Blush Garden Wedding

I love the rain. I love how it softens the outlines of things. The world becomes softly blurred, and I feel like I melt right into it.

The water trickled on the clear tent above, dripping down the sides of the plastic as candlelight reflected off of every drop. Everyone huddled close within the covering to stay dry, the warmth radiating through every laugh and rosy-cheeked smile, feeling cozier than anyone though possible amidst the storm around them. Kim’s father, holding a microphone in one hand and a crystal glass in the other, brought tears of joy to every eye in the room with his beautiful words to the newlyweds. There was one story in particular that stuck with me, because it was a story that Kim and her dad will have with them forever, involving the Tango and a rose. When her dad would arrive home from work, Kim would greet him at the door and they would Tango across the room, and it had become their tradition. As he told the story, he couldn’t help but smile, his eyes swimming with the memory of the past, laughing as he remembered when she greeted him with a rose in her mouth. We all giggled at the sweet father-daughter gesture, but no one was prepared for what Kim had planned later in the evening. Just as their reception dance together was about to begin, she took to the floor with a large red rose in her mouth, just as she did when she was young and they tangoed away to the music, everyone around them roaring with applause. It just added so much joy to what was already one special memory, and now they have two. Just a small taste of many beautiful aspects of Kim and Mitch’s unforgettable day!

The rain didn’t stop anyone from creating the most lovely memories; from umbrellas between every shot, to a flood inside the reception tent (cue Alanis Morissette’s Ironic), these two refused to let anything stand in the way of experiencing their dream wedding. Even after having to rush inside and push couches and tables away for a dance floor, every guest was having the time of their life and the day was still so centered on their union. It was truly filled with so many breath-taking touches, and Some like It Classic knocked this one out of the park, wet hair and all! And I loved every minute of the craziness, and it’s one of those weddings that I will never forget in the best way. Kim & Mitch, I’m so incredibly elated for you, and you two deserve every drop of happiness in the world. I feel so honored to have captured this incredible time in your lives, and how every time it pours, you will be reminded of your wedding, and that will brighten even the darkest of days. Cheers to a sunny future, and to your beautiful love!
