Rain Has Never Looked So Good

Life happens, the good, the bad, the messy, and all the beautiful bits in between. It’s easy to let dreams fall by the wayside but this married couple refused to let go on their plans to visit Paris. And when they did, Peter and Veronika joined in to photograph what they thought would be warm, sun drenched snaps. But Mother Nature has the final say and in came rain… much to the camera lens’ luck. Rain looks good on these two and these pics,and this story, are officially my new, inspired #relationshipgoals.

From the Bride…  Since we just got married, it has been my dream to travel to Paris for our five year anniversary. Five years went by and the trip just didn’t seem realistic. We just had our second baby, bought our first home and I was really sick earlier that year so traveling across the globe was not even in the conversation. But the desire in my heart was still there, quietly tugging at me.

One night after a conversation with a close friend, I decided that unless I took some sort of action towards making this travel dream a reality, it was always going to be just a dream. So I started a little savings envelope towards that trip and put money aside every chance I got, skipping nail appointments and passing up the opportunity to buy new clothes. Almost two years later, we finally had enough to comfortably travel Europe for close to three weeks and so we set off on our anniversary adventure.

This trip was so special to us! We both were ready to slip away from reality and everyday busyness and focus on each other and invest in our friendship. It was really refreshing to be able to leave the kids and go adventure together, just the two of us. Stay out late, ride bicycles, and do other normal activities that get a little complicated to enjoy once you have two babes at your hip.

Paris was everything I had imagined. It stole my heart, just like I knew it would. I fell madly in love with the old, charming city. Being a photographer myself, I couldn’t imagine being in Paris and not taking the opportunity to to get our photos taken to save these memories forever. The shoot was not at all what we had anticipated. The weather changed dramatically before the shoot. I imagined warm, golden photos but in the end it turned out way more romantic than we could ever imagine.

I was really concerned with how we’d look on photos being totally soaked in the pouring rain. My hair literally looked like I just stepped out of the shower! But the photos turned out beautiful. The best part of the shoot (aside from the fact that our photographer was down for anything!) was that we had SO MUCH FUN! The rain seriously didn’t bother us one bit. My husband and I really enjoyed just being together, holding hands, kissing, and running around in the rain. I felt young and free. That was the best thing.

The photos turned out wonderful but the experience of running around in the rain with my love, after being married for seven years and having two kids, it was unforgettable. Life gets so busy sometimes and it’s so easy to get carried away with everyday tasks that we forget to enjoy those simple moments and to just let lose and be wild with the one you love.

From the Bride… Moses and I have known each other since high school, but our story really started after college. Superbowl ’93 and ’94 rivals brought us back together, after many conversations of who has the better team. Go Bills!

Before getting engaged, I never imagined what my dream wedding would be like. Moses and I both have a love for 1920’s Gatsby fashion, so we knew we wanted our wedding to have that feel. We did a lot searching online for the perfect venue and after many visits to other venues, we finally found the Bourne Mansion. The Bourne Mansion used to be the Singer (sewing) family’s mansion and since I went to school for fashion in New York City and we wanted our wedding to feel like a big Gatsby party, it was a perfect match.

Getting married in New York opened up our options to some amazing vendors. First, our band, the East Coast from OmniPop Talent Group. OmniPop Talent Group was so great to deal with, extremely communicative and made the process incredibly easy and the East Coast band made our wedding! We got so many compliments and praise about their performance. Secondly, our florist, Flowers By Brian, made our venue come to life. The arrangements were stunningly beautiful. Last but certainly not least, our photographer, Rich Ciro from Ciro Photography who captured our day so beautifully. As we were going through each picture we were brought back to the moment and got to relive the day! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. His attention to detail in refining every single picture is amazing. And not to mention the thoughtfulness and artwork that was brought to each picture.
