Hi! My name’s Char in case you’ve forgotten. I know I haven’t posted for a while…but I thought I deserved a little break since my daughter got married last month in another state and I was a little stretched for time. But now the stress is mostly over. The wedding went off without too many hiccups, my daughter was a happy bride, and I love my new son-in-law. Here are pictures of the happy couple.
Yes, it rained for her wedding day, but I thought these pictures turned out spectacular because of that. There’s always a little blessing in life’s challenges. The night before the big day, my daughter was super upset because of the pouring rain and thought her day would be ruined.
But things turned out great. Yes, it was still rainy and cold, but the rain made the colors so vivid, and the damp, cold weather kept people inside, making it super easy to get great pictures outside with no people in the background–which can be a hard thing to do at the Salt Lake Temple because there are so many tourists.
The dress got a little damp on the bottom, and my daughter’s arms were ice cold by time she showed up for the luncheon after taking pictures for an hour and a half, but she had this huge smile on her face…and that made it seem like a sunny day.
Life is like that. If we focus on the dreary clouds, we can miss out on all the vivid colors the rain brings out that can make us happy. If all we want is constant sunshine, we are certain to be disappointed. Little blessings are hidden in all sorts of weather.
