Rain is said to hold good luck when it happens on your wedding day. It's a symbol of all the old being washed away and new beginnings starting. This September wedding and this couple were so much fun and so relaxed. Despite the rain, the couple and their guests still enjoyed every second of the day. And with nature surrounding you, how could you not? 
I enjoyed both Alisa & Zac because they were so down to Earth and laid back. They had asked their guests to come to their wedding in costume if they so chose and a few did. One being her uncle and donning his Leprechaun outfit. 

The venue had gorgeous seating that wrapped around and a fire pit in the center. They actually lit the fire pit during the ceremony. 

Some of their details included a table with different face masks that their guests could wear if they wanted, feather boas, and the guest book along with a marriage advice jar. They had candles set up everywhere as well. For the most part they stayed lit until it really started raining.

I loved their first look. We set it up and did their reveal on one of the paths near the campsite. They really popped from the background in their purples and her lace robe. What a good looking couple!

It was soon time to start their ceremony. Everyone started heading to the pavilion while Zac and Alisa got ready to walk down the aisle. 

After their ceremony we did a few formal portraits with Alisa and Zac and a few of their friends and family.

We got a small break in the rain and took some couple's portraits. This couple had so much chemistry and were so easy to direct.

Soon after it was the cake cutting and dinner. 

As you can see a little bit of rain on their wedding day didn't stop this couple or their guests from having a good time. They embraced it and celebrated in great Alisa & Zac style.
