"God Won't Let It Rain on my Wedding"

The wedding took place on Saturday September 19. Luke and Drew were married on the grounds of the American Camellia Society near Fort Valley, GA exactly the way Drew had dreamed it and planned it.

I’m sure I am biased but if you rate the beauty of weddings on a scale of 1 to 10, this one would be at least a 15.

I asked Drew when they first starting planning an “outside” wedding if she was sure she wanted to go through the added stress of worrying about whether it would rain on her wedding.

Her response was quick and to the point, “God won’t let it rain on my wedding.”

As their day approached and the heavy rain approached with it, I was hoping her faith would be enough. In fact, I went out and bought a dozen or so umbrellas just in case.

I wasted my money.

I checked the weather radar an hour before the wedding. There were storms all over middle Georgia but they were just north of the American Camellia Society.

After the reception that night I followed the limo carrying Luke and Drew back to her parents’ house. They were stopping there to change clothes and grab their luggage to continue on to Atlanta.

Afterwards I followed the limo out of their subdivision. The limo turned left and I turned right. The thought I had at that moment was God didn’t let it rain on their wedding.

I had hardly processed that thought when the rain began to pour down.

I can tell you it’s difficult to drive in the pouring rain when you have tears in your eyes.

The video below was shown at their wedding rehearsal dinner. Hope you enjoy!
