rain on your wedding day . . . - Arizona Wedding Photographer | Patchwork Photography

rain on your wedding day . . .

So, I have heard it said, that rain on your wedding day is good luck.  not many brides buy it.  Rain just causes trouble – mud, dirty dress, flat hair, etc – TROUBLE.

In my “little” bit of research, though, I did discover that there are still many people whom do believe that rain is infact good luck!  ( Just as long as it is gone by the ceremony.)   Rain, for centuries, has been a symbol of fertility to agricultural societies, because rain restored and maintained the wellness of crops. Crops were peoples main source of stability and income, so it was thought to guarantee a long happy marriage!

So, congratulations to Rachel and Andy on your beautiful wedding day – a day filled with lots of rain (but none during the ceremony), lots of friends, great food, and of course, love!  May your marriage be blessed and  . . . because of the rain . . .fertile.  🙂
