Weiner-Taylor Wedding

11 Oct

Whew!  That’s the big sigh of relief everyone at Haywood Hall breathed at the end of Jon Weiner and Lindsey Taylor’s wedding ceremony.  For the past two days, the weather forecast had kept us on edge with the promise of inevitable rain for Saturday evening.  Jon and Lindsey had their hearts set on an outdoor ceremony, but we put together a rain plan and were ready to proceed according to conditions.  All day Saturday, we kept our eyes on the sky; even as we brought in extra tents, we prayed that the clouds were merely teasing us.  As the six o’clock ceremony approached, those clouds became grayer and more ominous, so much so that we toyed with the idea of beginning the ceremony early. 

Yet despite all the dire weather forecasts and threatening clouds overhead, the rain showers held back.  Jon and Lindsey were able to proceed with their wedding ceremony outside on the front lawn of Haywood Hall as originally planned.  As a matter of fact, the rain held off the entire evening and began only a light sprinkle as the newly married couple were leaving the reception.  As one guest said, that’s got to be a good sign.

The ceremony music was provided by musicians on the front porch.

Our rain plan included setting up a second tent at the end of the house.

Dinner was served under the main tent.

Eventually the cake was displayed in the gazebo, but until we were sure rain would not be a problem, we kept it safely in the dining room.
