Rain or shine we love a good wedding story here at Ruche. We couldn't help ourselves from falling in love with this story of a bride and groom who looked seamlessly happy even underneath torrential downpour! This beautiful bride wore our Gwen In Ivory, and even after withstanding hours of rain, she couldn't have looked more beautiful. Hear the story from the bride herself!

March 2nd 2013 was a roller coaster for me. A tropical storm rolled in for the 3 hours I was getting prepped, married, and photographed. Still it was a beautiful day. Now that I look back, the dress I almost settled on can't compare to the dress I ultimately chose. It was fate that I stumbled across it a month before I was getting married and it fit like a glove. My mother in law gave me a little bit of Edwardian lace featuring a rose to symbolize the white rose of York, as I was about to become one. It matched the fabric perfectly and was a delicate addition to an already amazing dress. I had to wear a little shawl as a last minute cover up against the torrential rain, which of course ruined my hair, but it managed to work well in the overall look anyway.

It's such a gorgeous, comfortable dress that I can't believe I only wore it once. My husband keeps telling me we're going out to take proper photos someday when the sun comes out! Truly this dress deserves a few more photos to show case it. Until then, thank you so much for this gorgeous dress for my beautiful day.

  • These wedding photos are FABULOUS!! It's these kind of photos that you look at years later and feel the moment of that special day. The dress is so beautiful and very fitting for such a gorgeous bride. Okay the groom is pretty cute too. I have 2 Doxies and I really love that you have a photo with your Doxie! I've been married 33 years to my wonderful husband and I wish you a long fun life together. My advice to the bride and groom is keep each other laughing and you can get through anything!!

    Blessings, Edie Marie
