Or: A raging snowstorm and a strapless wedding gown.
The latter option is what happened to Brittany and Sean Tuohy, a couple married in eastern Washington on Sept. 28. The pair made the best of the snowy situation, though, and captured some stunning snaps in the unexpected weather.
The couple planned the wedding from their home in Arizona, but there was no way of knowing that a blizzard would descend upon the Spokane area on their big day. According to photographer Jaime Fletcher, the wedding party quickly adapted to their wintry surroundings.
“I got up there and imagined they’d be in bad spirits and it was quite the opposite,” Fletcher told “Today.” “They were laughing and giggling about how Brittany has the worst luck.”
Fletcher said the party decided to “wing it” and scampered outside to get photos in the snow. The photographer posted some of those photos on her Instagram account:
In this post, Fletcher says the group was only outside for about 10 minutes because of the conditions.
They were still able to get this magical pic of the bride and groom, though:
“Sean was so sweet with her, picking snow out of her eyelashes,” Fletcher told USA Today. “I just thought it was really special they made the best of it. They really wanted to get married, regardless of the crazy storm outside, and they did it.”
Here’s another photo of the happy couple taking a stroll in the unusual September snowfall.
After the wedding, the Tuohys jetted to Germany for their honeymoon, and Fletcher is still impressed by their positive attitude.
“They didn’t anticipate snow on their wedding day, let alone snow flying in their faces at 30 miles per hour,” she told “Today.” “I was thankful they loved [the photos] as much as I do.”
