Everything about their wedding day felt right to Jeannine – even the rain that started that morning. “The whole day was such an intense feeling for me; it was like living in a dream,” she says. Since it was raining, they weren’t able to put chairs out on the lawn for their ceremony, but it turned out to make that special moment even more memorable. Jeannine’s aunt and uncle, who have been together since high school, performed their ceremony under a driftwood arbor they crafted. The couple exchanged vows they wrote for one another, leaving each other in happy tears. “In the end, our guests stood with us on the lawn, much closer than they would have been in chairs. It gave such an intimate feeling, like they were all in it with us. It wasn’t what we planned, but it felt so special,” says Jeannine. The night carried on with many laughs as the reception turned into a karaoke party, creating even more shared, cherished memories.
