Rain is probably one of the biggest worries for most couples on their big day. But Courtney and Colin embraced the unpredictable weather and made the rain work in their favor. On the magical estate venue of Dover Hall, their rainy day soiree featured dreamy florals and decor, lovely blue tones, and creative displays.

Dressed to the nines for the occasion, the bride was a vision in her elegant lace wedding gown. Meanwhile, the groom looked timeless in a classic black tux from Jos A Bank. The pair promised each other a lifetime of love in front of the striking mantle that perfectly framed the moment they said their “I dos”. Following the ceremony, friends and family were treated to a display featuring a specialty imported champagne. All their guests knew how much this couple loved champagne and it was a fun way to show off their interests and personality!

Scroll through these incredible images, from the artwork of their new puppy featured on napkins and drink menus to a decked out dessert cart, captured by Nicki Metcalf Photography to find out how the pair leveled up their celebration and didn’t let the bad weather rain on their parade!
