Mountain Springs Lake Resort is one of my all-time favorite wedding venues. You might have seen another adorable wedding I shot there, here. It’s just a magical place where the beauty of the natural surroundings take your breath away. It’s a little bit of heaven for photographers because there are so many fantastic backdrops–lake, towering pines, open fields. The biggest challenge is deciding which of the gorgeous spots to take advantage of!
On Matt & Cassie’s wedding day, we certainly wanted to enjoy the outdoors, but the weather didn’t seem to want to cooperate. (Have you seen the Top 5 Tips for Rocking a Rainy Wedding Day?) As the bride and maids were getting ready, the rain fell ever more steadily and the skies were extremely dark. We managed a quick first look under umbrellas, and the ceremony was moved indoors. Despite the grim weather, Cassie’s and Matt’s smiles set the tone for the day. They savored each moment with each other, and their family and friends. And what do you know? As the ceremony ended, the sun came out, full force, in time for some very special outdoor photos near sunset.
I wish Cassie & Matt all the love in the world, through sunshine and rain!
See this darling duo featured on Rustic Wedding Chic!
