Last night the rain stormed down in torrents. It was reminiscent of one year ago exactly. Our wedding day. Which, for good measure hosted a monsoon amount of rain. We had wanted a simple outdoor wedding but having seen rain on the forecast, chose an outdoor shelter for the ceremony. Boy, did we luck out! Our romantic enclave in the rose garden gazebo at Woodland Park Zoo sheltered us perfectly while rain streamed down around us in every direction. They say a wedding in the rain blesses the union and makes for a happy marriage. This appears to be so for us. We are very happy!
