A Wedding with Chocolate & Roses

From the bride, Meredith: It POURED down rain right at the beginning of the ceremony and magically, everyone pulled out an umbrella. I was covered by my bridesmaids, but Stephen was left completely exposed to the elements. It must have been about 50 degrees, but you would never have known by the way he stood there that he was getting drenched in the rain! He was beaming the whole time. And then when we began the vows, low and behold, the clouds parted and it was beautiful throughout the rest of the ceremony. Chocolate is an obsession of mine, so I made sure everyone got truffles. Also, I gave the bridesmaids chocolate pearl earrings to commemorate the day!
