Mr. & Mrs. Mink…After the Rain

Hello, hive!  I wrote my last post 10 days ago in tears over the horrible weather that was affecting much of the mid-Atlantic on our wedding day. Though I’m usually an optimist, I was convinced we would be completely rained out pretty early in the week. Everyone from Mr. Mink to our venue staff to people posting online was convinced that the rain would hold off.

The rain did not hold off. It was really bad at times. I’ll share the pictures to prove it in the coming days. However, the perk of enduring a severe storm is the amazing sky that follows.

If you believe Mr. Shakespeare’s idea that all’s well that ends well, then it was a perfect day. I’m so happy to be back to tell you all about it!


Mrs. Mink

    I cannot, simply cannot believe that you now married. How time does fly. I remember when you came on the boards newly and when you won your dress etc. I’ve followed your journey closely and I’m sure your wedding was superb. I cannot wait for recaps to start. Please don’t wait too long. And this picture is amazing!
