70% chance of thunderstorms? Most of us would worry ourselves to death: not Jessamine and Chad they were just as cool and laid back about their ceremony taking place out by magnolia tree. I arrived at the Buck house in Brentwood at 9am through rainy, gray skies. By 11am the skies cleared, sun came out… Jessamine and Chad were getting married outside under the magnolia tree, under open skies. The bride walked down the aisle with her dad to “Here Comes the Sun” and they processed to “Lovely Day” all performed by the fabulous Gypsy Hombres. Durning the ceremony, Kara, the maid of honor presented the couple with the song, “Sea of Love”.

Wonder what she's thinking?
Instead of a guest book, guests created little works of art using a wide selection of mediums. Very fun!
The cake stood in it's majestic glory under a moroccan tent until the storms rolled in, at which time, it was moved to the main tent and just in time!!
The first dance.
The tent was nestled under mature trees... I loved the shadows it created on the ceiling.
Dark skies led to soggy ground!
The getaway car and a brief couple's session with the pink umbrella!
Backdrop set up for the video photobooth which sadly got rained out!

Goodbye guys!! I had so much fun at your wedding. Thanks for making it such an awesome last wedding.
