Pouring rain. Rain so hard that I couldn’t see a thing as I was driving. I slowed down to 35 miles per hour on a 70 miles per hour road. Oh snap. I pulled into the temple and carefully prepped my camera in the back of the car for the rain. I’d never seen rain like this in Utah before, let alone tried to photograph in it!
I walked into the crowded waiting area. Friends and family were happily chatting and awaiting the couple’s exit from the temple. It may have been gloomy outside, but not in that joyful waiting area. I could hear laughter all around me. We checked the radar and knew the storm was going to pass soon. Rachel ran in the temple and told the couple to wait. And I’m so glad they did. Sure enough, the storm passed and the rain completely stopped. Allae and her sweet new husband were able to exit the temple to completely dry skies. It was a beautiful tender mercy.
Allae was a stunning bride. She carried a quiet grace about her the whole time. She was glowing. I could tell Tyler was so happy and relieved to finally be married to his bride. He had the cutest bracelet made for her that had the coordinates of the room they were sealed in on it. I thought that was so neat. I’m so happy for this sweet couple and for Rachel letting me help her capture her best friend’s wedding!
