We were both on our way to Ritchie Hill wedding venue for Melissa’s bridal portrait session through massive and super scary thunderstorms. I was slightly scared for my life (and I never get scared in thunderstorms y’all) I think I was mostly scared because it was someone else’s life at risk and not just mine. It was one of those storms where you could hardly see ten feet in front of you while driving and your wipers are at the highest speed possible, but they really aren’t making a difference. Talk about scary driving situation. The weather channel had been declaring tornado watches and warnings all through our area for the previous 2-3 hours.
About an hour before the session, I decided to text Melissa and ask if she felt safe enough to make the forty-five minute drive to the venue. Since she had just finished her hair and makeup it felt meant to be, we had to get these done that day! By the grace of all things good we booked a venue with gorgeous indoor natural light and a huge front porch. I was so grateful for that decision. And y’all this venue is PER.FEC.TION.
As soon as we arrived at the Ritchie Hill and got ready to start taking pictures the rain stopped and the clouds opened up just enough to make my heart happy! It didn’t clear up completely but at least we didn’t have to fight rain coming in sideways.
Melissa, I’m so thankful for this day you are such a beautiful, sweet and gentle bride. I can’t wait to share your wedding day blog. Sam, you are one lucky man!
