Chris & Alexis | Married Rustic Wedding at On Sunny Slope Farm in Harrisonburg, Virginia

Where do I even begin with this wedding? I think the thing that stood out to me the most from Chris & Alexis’s wedding day, was how calm and relaxed they were, and just their genuine excitement to see all their friends and family! This wedding was definitely one for the books, one of the main reasons being a tornado/hurricane/hailstorm (whatever you want to call it, it was a massive storm!!) came through right in the middle of the ceremony!

The officiant rushed to the First Kiss, and it was a mad dash back up the aisle and to the tent! Rain was seeping in through the bottom, the winds lifting the sides of the tent up, and everyone was soaking wet. But even still, Chris & Alexis were just so thrilled to be married, and never once complained!

Thankfully, the storm only lasted for about 15 minutes more, and afterwards we were blessed with a gorgeous rainbow, and even some golden light for bride & groom portraits!! 

Congratulations, Chris & Alexis!!

While guests were being seated for the ceremony, I kept looking over my shoulder and seeing these ominous clouds float closer and closer…
