Everyone says that rain on your wedding day is good luck… but is it really?! This Kiln Creek wedding will have you believing that anything can happen!

And when you have a couple like Alissa and Donnie, it’s going to be pure magic!

We were lucky in the fact that it didn’t start raining until later in the day…

When we were doing formal portraits with the bridal party.

(of course it did)

But after dodging the raindrops for some killer photos, we were able to make it back inside to the reception for it seriously started downpouring.


From the start of the day, everything was beautiful.

The bride and groom were in such good spirits, and Alissa and Donnie couldn’t stop smiling.

I mean, if you were about to have the best day ever, you wouldn’t be able to stop smiling either!

Get to know more about these two lovebirds in today’s blog.

Kiln Creek Wedding

When we first met Alissa and Donnie, it was to photograph their engagement session.

They talked about first meeting in high school, but how their relationship didn’t really take off until college.

When they first planned their wedding, it was supposed to take place on May 23rd.

This was an important date because a) spring weddings are amazing, but b) because it would have been the 6 year anniversary of the start of their love story.

Aawww, how romantic!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 had other ideas, and they had to postpone their wedding.

Alissa said that initially she was super disappointed at not having their original wedding date.

But (thankfully) it was just a temporary setback, and these two were still able to get married!

After some reflection, she told us that ultimately “it truly doesn’t matter because I will still get to marry my best friend!”

We’re here to vouch – this wedding was one to remember!


Alissa and Donnie – thank you so much for having us come and capture your love story.

It has been such a joy getting to know you both, and we know that the future holds nothing but amazing things for you and your little family!
