Floral by East Branch Organics, dinner at Baxter Mountain Tavern with Lake Placid DJ and Cedar Run Bakery.
It's raining, freezing, dark, five minutes later the sun's shining, clouds parting, the mountain back drop great reveal. Between 1 pm and the 5 pm wedding start this cycled three times. At 5 pm ceremony time -- a down pour! The Dark Sky app saves the day. Radar updates and reveals rain will stop in seventeen minutes. Open the bar. Set up food stations and invite guests into home for a pre cocktail hour, cocktail-hour. Reassure bride we will still be outside. Wait for staff who was shuttling guests and last van to arrive. Rain stops -- inform guests we will be heading out in seven minutes. Run outside with towels to dry all the ceremony chairs and benches, usher guests down to ceremony field. Cellist and violinist new location outdoors. Cue minister, cue wedding party, cannon in d -- here comes the bride as the sun gleams from behind the high peaks. I can't take credit for the weather but I can take credit for doing whatever it takes to make my client's dreams become a reality! #adksusa @LakePlacidDJ @darkskyapp
