We took these last year when hurricane (Alex I think) missed us here in the Mayan Riviera... but stirred up some fantastic skies and once in a lifetime pictures! We loved it... and so did Nicole and Kurt who are also BDW members!
MTM, It looks to me like that bride and groom were much too busy to notice the weather. I have noticed this with wedding guests at rainy weddings as well, they always seem to be having so much fun I am not sure if they ever even notice the fact that it is raining at all!
I personally make no claims to be an expert on the weather but since I will be photographing a really sweet couple tomorrow I have had one eye on the sky all morning and blazing sunshine has alternated with dark and overcast about 5 times already today! You just never know! The one thing I do know is that you can't go by the weather channel forecast on the iphone, it almost always shows rain even when the weather is fantastic.
This year I also photographed some events with crazy, crazy weather, it really was a year for that I think, and they seemed to have been spread out in different months. I think that there are so many factors involved in scheduling a wedding and probability of rain is only one of them. It was fun to see that Matt and Sol were also shooting as Ivan passed by offshore Donna and Patrick's wedding had Ivan's crazy weather making things interesting for us as well that day, but it was still an amazing time.
