Val Vista Lakes Clubhouse monsoon wedding

wedding day rainbow

Driving to Val Vista Lakes Clubhouse for Lizett and Chris’ wedding I was watching the sky. Dark monsoon clouds were rolling in and the wind was whipping. A last-minute decision was made, as the rain started to pour, for the ceremony to be moved inside. An indoor wedding ceremony was not what Lizett had planned for her wedding day but mother nature was in charge at the moment. In the end, had I not known about the change of plans I wouldn’t have thought twice about the indoor ceremony. It was beautiful and staged perfectly, with cool sparklers and all. Once the ceremony was over so was the rain. We headed outside with the bridal party and family for portraits lakeside. Do you plan to have a monsoon storm overhead moments before you get married? No. But without that drama, you wouldn’t get a full double rainbow. The rest of the wedding reception was magic. Everyone dancing, kids all over the place, smiles and happy tears. Congratulations Liz and Chris!
