Rain, Rain, Go Away!

The clouds were very dark in the sky. Everyone was certain it was going to rain. And just 10 minutes before Debbie and Troy's Wedding Ceremony on the lawn outside in front of the beautiful Hayes Mansion in South San Jose...it started drizzling. OH NO! The 200 guests were arriving and taking their seats and everyone was wondering what was going to happen. Were we going to have to quickly move the ceremony inside? (That was Plan B) It's always good to have a Plan B. The Bride Debbie decided to go for it and hope for the best. As she walked down the aisle to "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones, the rain sprinkled on her and the guests. As Pastor Malcom MacPhail welcomed everyone and read a few passages...the sprinkles continued. But just as Debbie and Troy started to exchange their vows, something magical happened. The sky cleared and the sun shined through! It was the most beautiful blue ever! It felt like something out of a movie. (I'm pretty sure I was not the only one who got goosebumps when it happened) The ceremony was beautiful and it ended with "It's a Beautiful Day" by U2. Then, it was time to party!It was a super-fun night for my clients. Smiles were everywhere and the dancing was lively and fun. They danced to just about everything including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Rihanna, Journey, Bon Jovi, and everything in between. I took lots of requests as well which is always a lot of fun for me. What a night!
