Old Cigar Warehouse Wedding | Alicia & Taylor

Filed in: Weddings

This Old Cigar Warehouse wedding was one I will never forget! Being a photographer means you have to wear many hats, and one of those is a meteorologist. Consequently, I have four or five weather apps on my phone that I am constantly updating on wedding weeks. Alicia and Taylor’s wedding was calling for rain, but these apps had no idea what was really coming!

About fifteen minutes before the ceremony, it started pouring. It turned black outside, rain was flooding in the doors at Old Cigar Warehouse, and the trees were being bent sideways from strong winds.

There was no way Alicia could make her entrance from the staircase since you have to go around outside to enter that way. I said, why don’t we just ask the guests to close their eyes? Thankfully, Alicia and Taylor didn’t look at me like I was crazy. They loved the idea and we ran with it.

I’ll never forget the quiet moment when all their guest sat with closed eyes as Alicia and her dad went up the stairs so she could make her grand entrance back down the beautiful staircase. It was perfect.

Later in the reception, the storm had passed and there was even a little sun coming through. Because of that, we were able to step back outside for some of my favorite portraits. It was such a perfect analogy on a wedding day too: there may be storms, but always know that the sun will come back out. Alicia and Taylor, thank you for trusting me with your day and my crazy entrance idea, and being so kind and lovely. It was an honor being your photographer!
