It is so unusual here in Bakersfield to have a rainy wedding day that I consider it a lucky charm. Jeff and Stephanie were blessed with a beautiful wet and misty February day, and I couldn’t wait to shoot in the soft light. The bridal party got ready at the historic Padre Hotel. The bridesmaids wore Tiffany blue wrap dresses and all had Toms painted with their favorite Disney movie, while the men accessorized their gray suits with burgundy vests and rose boutonnieres. You all know I love a Disney theme, and Stephanie certainly brought that. She wore an Alfred Angelo dress inspired by Sleeping Beauty, with delicate flowers and beading on the bodice. The rain let up for a brief moment, so we were able to take some pictures downtown, but we chased the storm into Shafter and by the time we got to Park Place everything was wet! We improvised and were able to do some fun photos, even using an umbrella as a fun prop to document the rainy day. After the heartfelt (and indoor) ceremony, the rain let up enough to let us take pictures by the gazebo and some gorgeous sunset shots by the water.
