Randy and Carolyn's Wedding

Texas weather in spring is a fickle mistress to say the least. You can experience all 4 seasons in a day, and a powerfull cold front that dumped half a foot of snow on Dallas was showing us that winter wasn't done with us despite what the calendar said. The same calendar that showed I had Randy and Carolyn's wedding shoot at the Villa Vista - an outdoor wedding venue. The day started to the sound of rolling thunder and sleet pelting my window before dawn. I winced in my bed. I had never seen an indoor wedding attempted there. This should be an adventure.
I made sure to arrive half and hour early as I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The furniture had all been cleared out inside the Villa and very nice white folding chairs were lined up in neat little rows. Flowers and blue LED accent lighting had been placed strategically. The sustained 30mph winter winds howling outside were now an after thought. The very tight quarters did make photographing the event tricky, but I managed. The wedding came off top notch. Randy and Carolyn were very kind and generous. Very laid back - they took the weather and the problems it caused in stride. It didn't ruffle a feather.
