So what do you do if it rains on your wedding day? Or worse, what if it rains on your wedding day and you’re wedding happens to be on the beach at Jean Klock Park? If you’d ask Devin and Dave they’d tell you not to change a thing! We get all sorts of questions about what to do if it rains on the wedding day, should we have back up locations, should we move the ceremony inside, should we wait and see if the weather blows through? Well Devin and Dave were faced with exactly that question the morning of their wedding. With a chance of showers all day it was nearly impossible to tell what the weather would
do and while that might have dampened some brides moods Devin was all smiles as she prepared to walk down the aisle and mary Dave on the Beach. As luck would have it, it began to drizzle as the guests walked out to be seated and began to rain as the bride pulled up to the beach. Not to be deterred the guests popped out their umbrellas and neither the bride nor groom could help but smile as they looked at each other for the first time through the rain. While the guests may have left a little damp, spirits where high and I’m pretty sure everyone would agree it was an incredibly special and unforgettable wedding! After the
ceremony the rain kept coming and we did a few quick portraits on the beach before running to the bus and heading across the river to The Veranda in Saint Joseph Mi for the reception. Of course The Veranda is one of the best places on the lake for a wedding reception and from there on it was one hec of a celebration. So what do you do if it rains on your wedding day? I’m sure the answer will be slightly different for every bride but if you’re willing to just go for it your photographer is sure to get amazing pictures, and you and your guests are sure to walk away with some incredibly special memories!
Special Thanks to the Bride and Groom for allowing us to be a part of their wedding day and to Stella Event Design for making sure everything was picture perfect inspite of the weather! =)

Elizabeth McDonald - Another great photo shoot, Ben. This is amazing. Jean Klock Beach is where my parents took me as a little kid, and where my mother spent many lovely beach days–Megan McDonald Coriell’s grandma!! Any place on Lake Michigan is grand–and with you as a photographer, it’s even better.
