One Bride’s (Almost) Wedding Day Atrocity!

I had a vision of EXACTLY what I wanted July 18, 2015 to look and feel like. It was going to be our wedding day.  We had waited four years for this day…it was going to be PERFECT!

In my mind’s eye, I could see the soft sun rays highlighting the beautiful greenery as we took our wedding pictures at our favorite scenic park.

I could see our dear friends and family dancing under the stars—laughing, smiling, celebrating.  The dance floor would be full and elegant uplighting and perfectly placed spotlights would frame our amazing evening of celebration…

However, it was the ONLY weekend it rained in Orange County in the summer of 2015. The rains came and swept my vision away.  Literally.

I was a mess.  No family pictures at the park—it was pouring rain.  Our guests wouldn’t dance under the stars—we had to rent huge tents to cover the reception space last minute.  There would be no uplighting or spotlights—risk of electrical equipment being destroyed.

I was unlucky with Mother Nature, and my heart sank.  It truly sank.

I knew at that point that I could either laugh or cry.  I chose to smile! WE are wedding professionals ourselves.  WE have been providing wedding DJ, Photo Booth, Up lighting, and Coordination services for years to our trusted clients.  WE have been there for countless brides in their greatest moments of need.  WE knew how to make this day happen in the face of adversity.

I saw the multitude of friends and family who had come out to celebrate with us—despite the heavy rain. I was the bride…I needed to show everyone that this day was still going to be a day to remember!

So, we laughed, partied, and danced the night away!  No, it wasn’t the perfect vision I had in my head, but it was still my day…OUR day!

I had to thank everyone who worked to make our day special. We had chosen our wedding vendors well, so they pulled through despite the unexpected changes.  And, our photographer did ABSOLUTELY AMAZING work…I still don’t know how she made all of us look so wonderful despite feeling like drowned rats!?!?!

Why do I share this story?  In the face of potential disaster, it was our choice of wedding vendors that made all the difference in the world.  We had invested appropriately in people who were flexible, professional, and, above all, EXPERIENCED!  Had we not taken the time to choose our vendors carefully and invest in the best, our day would have been a catastrophe.
