If you’re sensing a theme with my weddings lately you would be correct that the theme is: Peaks Island. In fact I’ll be out on Peaks again this Saturday! Good thing I love island weddings and the adventure that comes with them. Thankfully, Kelly and Mike’s wedding did NOT come with the added adventure of hurricane Irene! The ferries to Peaks didn’t even run all day on Sunday, so a Sunday wedding on Peaks would have been nearly impossible. We actually lucked out on the weather; no one would have known what the next day held based on Saturday’s weather since it was a beautiful (albeit a bit foggy to start) day.
All day I kept repeating how lucky Kelly and Mike were to have avoided the hurricane by just a day, while at the same time I just felt so sorry for the couples in the mid-Atlantic who had their wedding plans spoiled by the storm. Most weddings have a ‘Plan B’, but seldom do they take into account a natural disaster. After this I hear a lot of couples are looking into wedding insurance, which sounds like a pretty good idea for those getting married during hurricane season.
As you can see, Kelly and Mike are pretty darned adorable, and their wedding was a sweet, intimate celebration which surrounded them with such love. Just look at the photo of their friends encircling them after their first dance, you could feel the love in the room. After their first dance the dance floor practically exploded from the energy of everyone dancing, Kelly and Mike’s friends were some of the wildest dancers I’ve ever seen at a wedding, and it was so much fun!
Thanks for sharing your day with me Kelly and Mike, have a relaxing time in Greece!
