We met Jill and Zach at a downtown coffee shop, on one of those rare warm days we could actually sit outside. I remember Jill saying if the weather would be just like this on their wedding day, it would be perfect! We sat and listened to their love story, it was so apparent how much they loved each other. Planning their summer Carmel Mission Ranch wedding, where Jill’s sister married a few years ago, was a dream.
Rain was in the forecast for their Carmel engagement session, but they had already traveled hundreds of miles to get here, we were going to do anything to make it work. Hour by hour I kept looking out the window at the pouring rain, thinking to myself this was this storm had no intention to stop anytime soon. As we drove over the mountain range to Carmel Valley, slowly the clouds stated to recede. We pulled into the parking lot and looked at each in complete amazement, the rain had stopped, at least for the moment.
Jill and Zack arrived, smiling ear to ear, knowing this was a complete miracle moment. We didn’t waste any time and stared right away! You wouldn’t even believe me if I said even for a moment, just in the precise spot they were standing, the sun appeared, and just as fast, it was gone. We had so much fun with these two crunching leaves, dodging tree drips, and listening to the sounds of rushing water of the Carmel River. These two marry just two short weeks before Rachel, and we can’t wait!
