We’ve had nothing but wacky weather this year. Freezing cold winter with piles of snow that went on all the way through April, then more cold throughout May, and it finally seemed to be warming up in June. However it was raining almost every day. We were hopeful that Niki + Rabert’s wedding would be spared any of the chaos, because they had planned a backyard ceremony at Robert’s family home in Hudson, WI. Unfortunately we got a little nip of the rain even then. Ironically, the rain only came as the ceremony was ending, and then stayed throughout their portrait time. Luckily, there were a lot of trees in the yard to shield us. Also luckily I brought lots of umbrellas! And it is true, it is good luck to get rain on your wedding day. More power to you, Niki + Robert!
Niki + Robert were married in Niki’s parent’s backyard in front of about 100 of their family and friends. I was lucky enough to be their Minneapolis wedding photographer. They even had their sweet little 8-month old son dressed in an adorable little matching onesie “suit” with argyle leggings and tweed hat. The backyard was a beautiful location for photos, with a lot of trees and even a lovely garden pond.
The sun did finally make its appearance right in the middle of dinner, so we had a chance to sneak in some more portraits before everyone was off to party the night away. Congratulations Niki + Robert!
