Lindsay and Erich 09.20.13 / by Bolla Photo

 Lindsay and Erich chose the adorable Roundhouse Wine Company for their Friday evening outdoor ceremony. Friday morning, however, brought quite the downpour of rain. Our original plans for photos in the park in Centralia got cancelled and we instead stayed in Mt. Vernon and went to the Mitchell Museum. Erich and Lindsay enjoyed their first look of each other that day between the pillars around the outside of the museum.

When we arrived at Roundhouse, the rain had become an intermittent drizzle. We were able to finish all of the family portraits outside on the terrace where the ceremony was supposed to be held.  Then it was the moment all brides planning an outdoor wedding hope they never have to face…time to make the decision to move the ceremony inside or hope the rain holds off and keep the ceremony outside as planned. Even though the forecast was calling for more rain, the radar and skies looked more promising.  Lindsay decided to keep the ceremony out on the lakeside terrace and to not allow it to rain! Thankfully, the rain held out and Lindsay and Erich exchanged vows just as the sun was setting.

Aside from a brief downpour just before the new couple were introduced into the reception, the rain cleared up for the rest of the night. After dinner Lindsay and Erich headed back out to the terrace, where they shared their first dance as husband and wife, encircled by their sparkler-waving family and friends.

Congratulations, Lindsay and Erich!
