Sometimes the weather doesn’t like to play nice on wedding days. As long as there is a good rain back up plan and an easy going couple, everything typically works out all right. Thankfully, Katy and Mark had both for their Barn at Bennett Flats wedding! The rain decided to stop and start all day long, but thanks to their flexibility, their wedding day was a day to remember.
A Rainy Barn at Bennett Flats Wedding
But let’s back track a little. The day began with Katy getting ready her girls. Instead of getting ready in robes or pajamas, as many brides do, Katy decided to put her own spin on their outfits. If you didn’t know, Katy and Mark both have a giant love for sports. I mean, they had their engagement session at Suntrust Park because of it! So it only made sense for the girls to get ready in sport jerseys!
After putting on her dress and the final touches applied by her mother and sister, Kathy walked out and had a first look with her girls. I love how they all screamed with excitement! It was fitting because Mark was just as wowed when he saw her during their first look. However, right after their first look, the heavy rains started and we all had to retreat inside the Barn at Bennett Flats.
Thankfully, the rain didn’t last long and we were able to go back outside for their couple’s portraits and bridal party portraits. It ended up being perfect because the water on the trees and grass just added an extra glow to all of their photos! But that was when their luck took a weird turn and the rain decided to stick around for the rest of the night. This meant that their ceremony had to be moved inside the barn. But this didn’t deter Katy and Mark from enjoying the rain. We even got portraits in the rain as their special little send off!
