Y’all, meet Meredith & Charles. Aren’t they both just gorgeous?
When I think about this wedding, I think about the word resilience. On their wedding day, Meredith and Charles were the DEFINITION of resilience. Of course, their whole wedding was jaw-droppingly gorgeous (everyone dressed to the nines, the perfect florals, a restored pink Cadillac crafted into a BAR!), but it ultimately centered around the love of Meredith & Charles (both the love they share for each other and the love their guests have for them).
Let me explain. The reception held at the Imperial Centre was inside-outside, and the beautiful tent that was set up outside was completely flooded by an ANGRY thunderstorm. Did that sink in? COMPLETELY flooded. Can you imagine? The band was out of commission, the outside food had to be rushed inside, the Cadillac bar was marooned… and so on. BUT… this is where my love for this couple comes in: it didn’t phase Charles and Meredith. Nope, not one bit! I don’t think I once saw them flustered by the situation. Everyone (the guests included) made the best out of the situation and danced their tushes off to an iPod in another area of the Imperial Centre. I just LOVE how everyone totally made the best out of a rather unfortunate situation. It really showcases the meaning behind the day.
Okay, enough out of me. On to my favorites from their day. Congrats to the happy couple! Y’all are the best. : )
