All of the wedding planning and decoration making came together at last on June 6th, 2015.

The day started out cloudy with a rumbling in the air and a prediction of a thunderstorm sometime in the afternoon..or possibly evening.  (the wedding was scheduled to begin at 5:00 with drinks by the pool!) We were not too worried because there was nothing we could do about the weather. So we decided we may as well enjoy the wedding!

At Congress Hall the bride and bridesmaids began the process of getting their hair and makeup ready.

Here they are in the floral robes that Sean picked out for them.

They were going for a “tousled beachy look” and I think they succeeded!

As the girls were getting glammed up, safe and sound in the Congress Hall Hotel, the skies let loose, and we had a terrific thunderstorm! Back at the Beach Club everyone who was helping to prepare for the celebration hustled to bring things back under the pavilion.

And then…the storm passed and the sun peaked out from the drifting clouds. It was going to be a glorious day after all!

Meanwhile back at Congress Hall everyone prepared for photos. The flower girls looked adorable!
