Kyle Michelle Weddings Blog
I'm pretty sure no one wants rain on their wedding day. I'm 100% sure, no one wants a nor' easter on their wedding day!
As the weather set in early in the morning and Long Beach Island began to flood, all Nicole and Mike could do was shrugged their shoulders, it is what it is.
It's rare that anyone deals with a true storm of any kind on their wedding day, but Nicole and Mike handled the whole day with Grace.
Their ceremony was being held at St. Thomas Aquinas in Beach Heaven. The drive typically takes 15 minutes in the off season, it takes about 35 - 40 minutes when all of the major streets are flooded and the only way to make it anywhere on the island is to drive slowly down the middle of the streets.
When the rain is coming in sideways (...Little bitty stingin' rain...and big ole fat rain. Rain that flew sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.-sorry, just had to!) We loaded Nicole into the transportation wearing a makeshift poncho of a large trash bag, cut with holes for her legs that covered her up to her neck and then we ran with her into the bus.
It's hard to stay smiling and positive but Nicole was ever the trooper. I'm guessing it was being raised by a West Point graduate and Infantry officer that taught her how to stay calm and to adjust whenever necessary.
I adore these pictures of her father seeing her for the first time!
Such a stud in his dress blues!
Mother Nature may have been a force to contend with on Nicole and Mike's day, but the wedding ceremony was gorgeous and the reception was gorgeous and a blast!
Also, sometimes you get really great pictures when the weather is acting out!
Congratulations Nicole and Mike!! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day!!
