Rain, Rain, Go Away.

Your Wedding day has arrived. You’ve been planning it for months (or years!) and it’s finally here. Then, unexpectedly, it rains. On you. On your guests. On everybody. During the outdoor ceremony! OMG! Don’t Freak out!! Mike and Alice did not freak out. And they were rewarded. So were their guests at beautiful Rosewood Sandhill in Menlo Park.

You may not want to hear this, but things can unexpectedly happen on your wedding day. How you react to those things will be a big indication of how your wedding day will actually turn out. Having the right attitude makes all the difference in the world. You can freak out about the rain, or get upset about the centerpieces that should have had 18 roses but only had 17, or about the kid who pulled the Bride and Groom Cake Topper off of the cake and ate it. Or, you can just blow it off (even laugh it off) as something very insignificant in comparison to the big picture. Mike and Alice decided to laugh it off. And smile it off! It was such a treat to watch. Beautiful Photos by Vero Suh Photography.The guests (me too!) could feel Alice and Mike’s positive energy and everyone fed off of that. It was amazing to watch (but not surprising). They did not let the external circumstances affect their moods. (Or maybe they were just incredible actors!) And because of that, it turned out to be one of the most incredible evenings.

Bottom line: You can obsess over the little things and let them ruin your wedding day. Or, you can just focus on what matters most (Love!) and have a blast. It’s your choice. As you can see, Mike and Alice were all smiles all the way to the end of the night. Here are a few of their special song requests for the reception:

Bridal Party Introductions: “Sirius” by Alan Parsons Project

First Dance: “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head” by Dean Martin

Father-Daughter Dance: “Moon River” by Henry Mancini

Farewell Dance: “Every Time I Close My Eyes” by Babyface

BTW, kudos to the incredible staff at Rosewood Sandhill and Wedding Planner, Jean Marks, and her staff. They Rock!

    Hi Rich,
    Thanks for this nice story. You tell it well, with beautiful photos, and make a great point: Don't obsess and make yourself crazy. Plan well, but accept life as it comes along, and do your very best with whatever fate offers. After all, a wedding is to CELEBRATE, every way you can.
