Courtney and Kyle are proof that when a couple focuses on love instead of uncontrollable circumstances on their wedding day, happiness wins. Happiness and joy should always win!  Sarah shares, “After all the pressure, planning, and business of dealing with the wedding, our first look was a intimate/private moment we got to share alone, made even more precious since Kyle may have shed a few tears that he would not have wanted everyone else to see. During the first look, it started to thunder and rain  began falling so hard it was coming down sideways under the Cedarwood Treehouse that provided minimal covering. At a time when you would expect most brides to lose it, I felt I embraced it. Weather was the only thing I could not control that day, and the rain almost made it more exciting. My dress, my hair, my shoes and even my officiant got soaking wet, but it was all fixable. Before we were even done with pictures in this location, the sun came out and blue skies appeared.”

We love how Courtney and Kyle could let go of the uncontrollable, immaterial moments of the day, and enjoy the beauty of their love, family and the lovely festivities spanning both rain and sunshine. The lovely day is documented by Sarah Sidwell Photography. Enjoy.
