Emily + Dan’s wedding at The Hickories

It wasn’t ideal, but they were going to make the most of it. It’s funny how something completely ordinary, like weather, can run the show on the most important day of your life.

It had poured all morning. The kind of pouring that sends even the most brazen of frogs hopping back to their homes to take cover. The sky was overcast, gray, hazy, and offered no suggestion that the sun would make an appearance. It was as if the sun had packed up its rays for a vacation and willingly let the rain take its place.

And yet, some could argue that the dreariness the weather brought was somehow fitting. It was a gentle reminder that they had recently lost a family member so near & dear. With dark clouds looming overhead, Emily’s sisters gave her a pendant to attach to her bouquet with an image of her recently passed grandfather. He was light and goodness, and missing him was gray.

After going back and forth many times, Emily and Dan finally decided to have their ceremony outside. It was still raining, but it seemed to let up for a brief minute into a light mist. She took a deep breath and began her journey towards her beloved husband-to-be. Just then, the sky opened up revealing an incredible ray of light that shone on her back and emphasized the radiance that was her. She smiled as a single tear escaped her eye. There he was, the light and the goodness. Her grandfather had never intended on missing her big day, and he made sure to make his presence known in the most warm and beautiful way.

 

Emily and Dan’s wedding at The Hickories in Ridgefield was nothing short of amazing. Every detail of their day was hand crafted by friends and family members. Much of the decor was a surprise to them, as Emily’s sisters and mom worked tirelessly to make it something that was incredible….and that, they did. It was a day where everyone joined hands to pull of an amazing event – wether it was the staff at the Hickories allowing Emily and Dan to wander in their field of lambs, the friends and family members carrying equipment in and out of the rain, or their godsend wedding planner, Shanon of Ryan Scott Designs. Each and every detail of their wedding was perfect.
