Krista and Josh's Tampa wedding was fantastic but that's largely due to their resilience, especially Krista's. I would normally not point this out but it's important for the story... Krista was just about as nervous as I've ever seen a bride. I don't necessarily think it was nerves about getting married so much as feeling the pressure and weight of all the day's planning, etc. It can get to the best of 'em. Anyway, the weather was also playing a huge role in the day's stress. This was an outdoor wedding (with a great Plan B but that's not the point) and the rain was coming. It looked ok for most of the afternoon but as wedding time approached, the clouds started rolling in. The decision was made to go early-ish even though all the guests were not seated. A great decision indeed. Just as Krista arrived at the alter, the drops started to fall. The great thing was that most of the wedding was under the cover of large, overhanging trees so it would take a pretty substantial downpour to ruin things and so far, just sprinkles. That didn't last long. Right around the ring exchange the skies let loose. Without missing a beat, calm as humanly possible, and overcoming any nerves she must have been feeling, Krista told the officiant to cut things short and pronounce them husband and wife. Nobody really knew the difference and what could have been a disaster was saved. In the end, Krista and Josh stayed positive, the skies parted, spectacular light that only happens after a storm shined down on us and we got to do some really great pictures. Morale to the story... as usual, stuff WILL happen at your wedding. How you handle it is everything. As they say, don't sweat the small stuff, and it's ALL small stuff.
