Many brides fear waking up on their wedding day to rain—but believe it or not, rain in the forecast actually makes for the most stunning photos! Besides the old adage that rain on your wedding day is actually good luck (and we totally agree), a gloomy day creates the perfect amount of light to compliment you and your spouse. If you still need convincing, check out over these photos below, and get rainy day wedding tips along the way.
Umbrellas are your friend.
In the middle of your first look or portraits and it starts to drizzle? Pull out an umbrella that’s large enough to cover you and your fiance. Trust us, it makes for a great photo opportunity! Your photos will look perfectly candid, intimate and super-romantic in a special spur-of-the-moment way.
Find a shady tree.
Take advantage of the greenery on the property! Make your way over to a shady tree or garden and tuck yourselves under some branches to fend off the weather and get the most stunning photos. The rich green and brown hues of the natural foliage will make the whites and ivories of your dress POP.
It makes the perfect opportunity to cuddle up to your new spouse.
Rainy weather brings cooler temperatures. Take advantage of the chilly breeze and cuddle up to your new spouse! You’ll love the intimate feel of these photos. We guarantee you’ll use one of these shots for your thank you notes!

Head inside or under covered areas of your venue.
When in doubt, head inside! If you’re staying at a resort-like Sea Island, there’s plenty of places for you and your spouse to get incredible photos away from the rain. Head inside to the lobby and snap some photos in front of some cool artwork or head over to the porte-cochère and use the architecture to your advantage.

With rain comes sunshine.
Be sure not to let the rain bring you down, as your wedding day is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. In fact, once the weather lets up, you’ll have the opportunity to snap some dreamy post-rain shots. Who knows, you might even catch a rainbow!
