"Life is not so much about waiting for the storms to pass as it is about learning to dance in the rain."
On the first rainy morning of October, much like the morning that Mike got down and one knee and proposed to Courtney, Courtney & Mike prepared for the day they had been waiting for for years. Courtney pinned a handkerchief gifted by her aunt underneath her dress, and carried a photograph of her beloved grandparents in her bouquet. They drove in the misty weather to Mike’s alma mater, Merrimack College to be married in the beautiful church on site. By the I Do’s, the rain was steadily pouring down - but Courtney & Mike learned to dance in the rain through the rolling green pastures of Gibbet Hill with all their friends and family. The crowd knew all the traditional Portuguese dances by heart, welcoming Mike’s Irish family to join along in the fun. With a love for all things sweet, they cut their cake and served cookies + cupcakes to the guests.
Thank you to all the vendors!
