The Time of Our Lives: The Calm After the Storm

Before I go on I just want to say that you all are way too sweet with your comments. And since a few of you mentioned it, I also have to assure you that I am no "hero" for smiling through the storm that happened on our wedding day. Sure I could have been a little upset, but in the midst of all that love it would have been awfully ungrateful of me. And besides, when the sun came out it was so beautiful that it was almost worth the rain.

When we heard there was a rainbow, Mr. Tiramisu and I rushed down to the water to see it. The time we spent down there on the rocks felt like the calmest of the whole day. It was just the two of us””with a few onlookers. The rain had stopped, and we were married!

All photos by the talented Samantha of Samantha Warren Weddings.

I think we ran all the way from the tent to the water. We just couldn’t believe the change in weather. You saw that hail””it had been just minutes before this:

Can you tell we were just a little excited at this point? There was enough sun that we had to squint!

Ta da! The rainbow:

Sunny, but still a little windy:

This is one of my favorites of the day:

I tossed my bouquet aside and held on to my cute new husband instead:

Speaking of my new husband:

I was one of those brides who just didn’t care about a little dirt on the dress:

I am just in love with the way the rocky Maine coast shows up in these pictures. It makes me a little homesick just to see them:

Cannot. Stop. Smiling.

Any guesses as to what the groom’s thinking in this series?

We weren’t the only ones who wanted to check out the rainbow:

We found it pretty easy to pretend we were the only ones in the world though:

Until Sam came in for our close-ups!

Although I could have stayed down on the rocks with my new husband all night, there was, after all, a reception to get to.

    Seeing the slide show with the music makes me impatient for my own wedding. You guys look so happy. There is just no other way to put it. I wish you both the very best!

    Your pictures are fantastic! I, too, was a bride who didn’t care about dirt, as I drug our wedding party through a muddy nature preserve for the sake of outdoor photos! The dress can be cleaned…right?

    Oh, Mrs. Tiramisu! I am so happy for you–what a crazy, wonderful day! What a great wedding story! I am from the East Coast (Annapolis area, and also lived in CT and VT–New England is my heart’s home), but have been living in So Cal for the last 10 years. Your pictures make me sooooo homesick (guess that’s what I get for falling in love with a CA boy)! Congratulations to you and Mr. Tiramisu! I truly admire you both and wish you all the best!
    PS-it rained on my parent’s wedding day–they have been happily married for almost 40 years, now! :)

    What a happy ending to that dreaded storm. Those pics are pretty amazing. You guy are totally glowing. I love it!

    Oh Ms. Tiramisu! Your expressions are simply priceless! I am so thankful to be sharing in your big day. The hem of my dress got soooo filthy dirty, and when people kept asking me if they should hold it up, I kept laughing and saying, “Why? It’s not like I’m every going to wear it again!” Your carefree attitude is going to be such an inspiration to so many brides-to-be! Congrats!
