Anytime you plan a June wedding in Memphis there are a couple things you immediately know. 1, it's probably going to be very hot, and 2 there's a very good chance it's going to rain at some point on wedding day. Number one was definitely no big deal for us because Cassidy and Aaron decided to get married at their church and have the whole thing indoors. Number 2 though was a slightly bigger issue because even though we were planning for an indoor ceremony and reception they were hoping for outdoor portraits at a location down the street from the church. As usual on wedding day I watched the weather like a hawk and everything looked good. The little bit of rain in the forecast looked like it was going to miss us and we wouldn't need to adjust. This being Memphis though, that didn't hold. As Cassidy was getting into her dress we watched the light go from very bright, to slightly overcast, to very overcast, to ominous. We immediately swapped our idea of hoping in the car to head to an off site location for portrait time and first look for staying at the church and doing it all under the cover of the porch. After a few minutes of portrait time we could see that even though the clouds had definitely rolled in it wasn't about to flood the way it looked like it was going to. Then I remembered that the house next door had an amazing gate so, while Aleah kept shooting I ran over and checked it out. It look literally no convincing for Cassidy and Aaron to walk next door and finish portrait time in the neighbors driveway.
That's really kinda how their day went; easy, relaxed, do things naturally. It totally fit with Aaron and Cassidy's personalities too. Their day was definitely about friends and family and celebrating with the people they loved. Looking back at their photos Aleah and I couldn't help but notice how elements of Aaron and Cassidy's wedding reminded us of our own (except we got married at our university, not a church).
