Coral + Matt contacted me several months before to photograph their wedding, and while we chatted about their photography and wedding day plans over the phone and via email, I didn't get to meet them until their wedding day. Matt's originally from Massachusetts, and he still travels here often for work, but he and Coral call Maryland home. They are such a down-to-earth family and so easy to get along with that having our first meeting just a couple hours before walking down the aisle wasn't even a problem. They wanted romance and fun and their love for each other to show in their photos, and they wanted to make sure that the happiness of joining their families as one (he has two beautiful girls and she has one lovely little lady) was documented.
Their ceremony was set to be outside, and the weather in Bourne for Coral's "getting ready" photos was gorgeous: the perfect sunny and warm day in July for a Cape Cod wedding! But, the skies had different plans, and while we were on our way to the outdoor Ceremony site in Plymouth, it started to downpour...a lot!! I will never forget the phone call I got from Coral while trying to see through the sheets of rain hitting my windshield: "Shawna, I don't have a Plan B. I don't have a Plan B!" We made it work, and luckily, they were able to have their ceremony indoors at the Reception Site, Union Fish. And, miraculously, the sky cleared and allowed us to take some gorgeous outdoor photos on the pier.
