Jim and Trisha – Blackstock Winery wedding
May 23, 2010
This was a really tough wedding for me. The venue (Blackstock Winery) was incredibly beautiful and everything was planned very well. However you can’t plan the weather and can’t plan when people get sick. It was raining when I got to the venue and things did not improve throughout the day. The ceremony was held in an outdoor patio, so even though no special concessions had to be made for that, we still were not able to go out into the vineyard until very late in the day.
That is not the worst of it though. The bride, Trisha, had become very ill on the day of the wedding. She managed to make it through the ceremony, but shortly after had to be rushed to the hospital. She was later diagnosed with a small brain tumor. She expects to have surgery soon and make a full recovery in the upcoming weeks.
Out of all the times to get sick, one of the worst would be the day of your wedding. None of us can predict these things though so you really can’t take anything for granted. Once Trisha recovers, I hope to have an after-wedding session with her and Jim in their wedding clothes to make up for what we weren’t able to get on the day of the wedding. Maybe we can even go back to Blackstock for the session.
Until then, we are all wishing her a speedy recovery.
I am not posting my usual wedding set for obvious reasons, but here are a few pictures from the day:
