But—back in reality here—there's no way that six to eight months or more down the road any couple can forecast such pristine conditions for their wedding day. Despite their idealized image, summer weddings can throw a number of curveballs your way.
Stifling heat, flash thunderstorms and swarms of mosquitoes are just some of the things that neither you nor anyone else has any control over. Making sure your festivities have the greatest chance of proceeding smoothly requires some special planning and preparation. Thinking ahead will keep your guests, vendors and certainly your wedding photojournalist at ease and comfortable so they, and you, can enjoy the day.
