Mr. & Mrs. Awad | A Perfect Storm

When gearing up for your wedding day, there are a few words or phrases that could be terrifying for the bride-to-be. "Your dress won't zip up!" "We can't find the groom?" And, the most dreadful of them all, "RAIN!" Yes, rain... until now of course! 

The day of the wedding it was warm and sunny with not one cloud in the sky! With everything set-up, the bride was gearing up to walk-down the isle and it starts to POUR! Not the usual California sprinkle, this was the real deal, tropical-style pour! Since we were prepared with a rain-plan we went into ninja coordinator status and converted the entire venue in less than an hour. The floor was so wet from the non-stop pouring we had to take-off our shoes so we can gain traction.  

When we went to check-in with Britni and Saad regarding the adjustments and tell them about the weather, they were never phased one bit. Both Brit and Saad had this intense energy that was contagious, not only could you see how in love and excited they were to get married, you can actually feel it! The rain added an element to their wedding day that can't really be explained, it created a moment you only see in movies or read about in fairy-tales. EPIC is an understatement when describing their wedding and I was so honored to be a part of it!
