Winter

It snowed on Saturday.
Oh good, October Snow
Not even just a little snow, a few flakes that melt the second they hit the ground... no it was a legitimate snowstorm. And my Aunt was having a tent wedding.

Putting aside the fact that I've been grumpy as it is about losing summer to fall, getting a nor'easter in October seems like an especially cruel joke. Mother Nature's way of spiting me after I resolved to not wear tights until November.
I would like it to be noted that I did not wear tights in the snow storm.

Snowy October Wedding
Even with the snow, it seemed like the only part of the wedding that was going to be affected was that we weren't going to get to take photos outside (my brother and I were the photographers), that is until the storm caused the power to go out.

Things were a little tricky from there, because the backup generator didn't really have enough power to keep the heat and lights and audio equipment all on at once... more than a few fuses were blown and we kept our coats on all night.

But I still had a really awesome time, the food and the cake were phenomenal, and I could not be happier for my Aunt!

  3. I agree- the storm was a cruel joke! I just holed up in my apartment until it passed over. Congratulations to your aunt and glad that her wedding wasn't ruined by the snow!

  4. I heard from Rad that it snowed, and seriously, I still can't believe it SNOWED this weekend! In October! Craziness.

  6. Okay, I'm sad too that summer is over, but I'm also kind of jealous that you got snow! I guess I just like extreme weather - boiling hot or freezing cold with snow :)

  7. Well at least its a wedding they will never forget ;) Luckily we didn't lose power during the storm, that would've been bad because I was home alone, I wouldve freaked out
    And woohoo for braving the cold with no tights, sadly I broke down early because I get cold fast XDXD

  18. Although it must have been cold, the wedding looks so beautiful. Especially the photo with your aunt coming in from outside the tent, with the snow in the backdrop. So romantic. Looks like you had a great time, and your coat is gorgeous!

  21. LOL I just love how you are rejecting all aspects of the weather's want to be winter. You go girl. Keep resisting. xD Come November, you'll probably need to wear some tights though. Get warm awe yeah.

    I'm so glad everything still worked out though! It will probably make for an interesting story in the future. :') lovely lovely pictuuures!

  22. I'm sorry to hear about the weather... hopefully it will all melt away soon! I'm glad it didn't keep you from having fun in the wedding. You look great!

  24. I was on a flight home from Fort Worth when the snow hit and got routed to Pittsburgh to spend the night there and then 6 hours in the airport trying to get home. Ugh. I'm so glad that wedding worked even with the snow (there's something sort of romantic and lovely about a snowy wedding) - and you looked so lovely. That jacket was a great touch!

  30. Ok, no tights? You are officially crazy!! It's a shame that the storm had to interfere with your aunt's wedding, but I think that it will make for a great memory. I especially love the picture of them making their entrance into the tent with the snowy background - it looks very magical!

  31. When I read your tweet i thought "oh a little snow" but yikes this was A LOT. I am going to have to go back and repack. Repack with heavier clothing.
    BTW you look fabulous, i love that Zara coat.

  32. That is a gorgeous coat. I'm glad the wedding went well, in spite of the snow.

  33. Whoaaa... you really got hit. Accumulation here was practically nothing, and I also did not wear tights during the storm. I barely went out though. You look great! I love the coat.

    If I was ever to marry I'd want it to be in the snow. I'd even run around outside in it for photos.

  42. Snow?! I'm not ready- I hope it doesn't come my way yet! I actually think the snow adds a beautiful touch to the wedding- your Aunt's dress (and the cake) is stunning! You look beautiful- I love your coat!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, you weren't kidding! Boy did it snow! You and your aunt both look gorgeous, and how awesome that you were the photographer. I hope warmer weather is headed your way!

  44. Huge bummer about the snow and the complications it caused on your aunt's big day. These wedding images are lovely though. You and your brother did a great job!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Snow in Fall? That's not fair. However perhaps some wedding snaps were prettier because of it?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can't imagine having to do an outdoor wedding in that snowstorm--I was barely able to get home that day, myself! You look great, though, and the wedding looks like it turned out beautifully anyway.

  47. Kudos for not wearing tights! My family and I are in CT, too, and mom had to break her "open toed shoes 'til November!" rule over the weekend :(

  48. I love your coat!! And her entrance into the tent is awesome :)
