What do you do when it begins to rain in the middle of the wedding? To finish the ceremony, you invite 200 guests to join you under the two massive willow trees. It created an intimate, bonding experience for everyone, and I’m sure Cassie and Austin’s guests will talk about their wedding in the days, weeks, and years ahead.
Despite a sudden change of plans and a heavily abbreviated ceremony, the couple was happy, and Cassie wrote and said, “Austin and I wouldn’t change a thing about how our wedding day went. Thank you for being so flexible with it all.”
In 17 years of officiating weddings, this was a first for me. I can’t tell you how grateful I was that Cassie and Austin were a laid-back couple and able to be present in the moment. And I’m incredibly thankful it happened at my favorite wedding venue at Harvest Moon Pond, because what would we have done without their beautiful big willow trees.
