Mill City Museum // Katharine + Ryan

It's true, one of the most common wedding fears is a little drizzle on your big day {especially for those who plan an outdoor gathering}. But let's face it, rainy weddings make for beautiful pictures and great stories! Just ask Katharine + Ryan!

These two met in Minneapolis where they spent just three short months together before Katharine’s job moved her to California. Nine months later, Ryan joined Katharine on the west coast but they returned to Minneapolis for their Mill City Museum wedding. “I love the history of Minnesota and how it grew around the mill and the factory. I always saw myself getting married in the ruins.” However on their wedding day, the weather chose not to cooperate.

Although the sun wasn't shining, these two didn't let the rain "ruin" their special celebration. The misty weather made for perfect conditions as Katharine + Ryan cuddled up next to each other under the same umbrella during the ceremony while guests gathered under the overhang provided by the ruins.They exchanged vows {written themselves} and Katharine promised “in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, and to make Ryan “breakfast sandwiches for dinner”. 

This lovely couple took full advantage of their rainy wedding and their positive demeanor was certainly contagious.

See for yourself!
