One of the things about weddings is that they often seem to be too familiar after awhile. You start looking for the same things, you set up in the same places in the aisle, etc. But then one comes along that busts up all your usual routines, and for me, Meredith and Aaron's wedding certainly did that.
Their original plan involved a small ceremony in a nearby state park, but someone pointed out that there was no alternate location at that site if the weather turned sour, and boy, was that a good call. The day turned out to have a light, but steady, drizzle, and instead of fighting the weather, we got a charming venue that was perfect for the intimate size of the gathering and promised fun for all.
