We have to hand it to our late fall brides: you never know what Mother Nature is going to bring! Angie and Scott planned a beautiful November wedding at the Sequoia Mansion and as luck would have it, rain put a quick damper on plans for an outdoor ceremony and photography. Luckily for this couple, the Sequoia is perfectly set up to handle any kind of weather situation, and can change the course for the day without blinking an eye. The Sequoia staff, Cocomont and Camino Flower Shop all worked quickly to bring the ceremony indoors to the elegant ballroom, while the spacious covered porch allowed us to photograph the radiant couple in beautiful afternoon light without anyone getting soaked. We know rain is never part of the plan for a the wedding couple, but we are so thankful that Angie and Scott “weathered” it all with love and grace.
Speaking of love, their “how-we-met-story” couldn’t be more romantic. Beautiful Angie was living at her mother’s house when handsome Scott moved in across the street. For two years they waved, said “hi”, and made the usual pleasantries as neighbors until familiarity grew into friendship, and friendship grew into love. Now, raising three beautiful daughters together and looking forward to adding to their family, these two are in as much love as ever. In fact, they got married almost 2 years to the day when they officially became a couple, and 1 year to the day when they became engaged. We have a feeling that mid-November will always carry special meaning for Angie and Scott, whether it rains or not!
The rustic touches that Angie and Scott incorporated into their wedding were unique and fun, such as the bride’s hydrangea and mum bouquet, the matching denim jackets for the bridesmaids, and some seriously sharp black leather cowboy boots on the flower girls. The couple was literally surrounded by a large and loving family – nine bridesmaids and groomsmen in all! It was great to see so much support for the bride and groom on their wedding day.
Congratulations Angie and Scott! We are so excited for the journey that lies ahead for you, and are so privileged to have been part of your very first day as husband and wife. May you always recall the friendship that started it all, and spread the message about what it means to be a good neighbor!
