| p.3 #2 · Storm Related Cancellation? |
Made it there and back, but the majority of guests did not. In fact the MOB said the pastor of the church called her and said that the parking lot and hill leading up to the church may not be clear by the time the ceremony was scheduled to take place. The parking lot was clear, but the county road to the church was not. Unfortunately, the couple had NO interest in trying to go outside, even on the church steps, to include the storm into their images. Since so few people showed up, the family sent me home with enough food to feed a small army...or the Donner Party.
I am still reeling from the tone of the posts here. I am not about to buy a gas guzzling 4WD monster to do the very rare winter wedding. I am from central NY. I have driven in many many many blizzards, and snow is a way of life from December to March there. I asked for suggestions , perhaps I wasn't clear about what I wanted to know so I'll take some of the blame for that. I never considered not going, I have never missed a wedding in all the years I have been doing this. My fear was driving down there, and having THEM cancel! Or getting in an accident on the way. There were many helpful posts, but as usual in this quagmire called Fred Miranda Wedding forum, there's too many unhelpful ones as well.
Glad to hear you made it there safe and sound and did your job. I bet the couple was happy too... but I'm confused about what you were looking for... You said you wanted suggestions or opinions on what to do. To some, myself included, that made it sound as if you were contemplating not going as one of the possible options.... which you admit to probably being a little unclear about. You also tell us that you've never missed in a wedding in all these years, so you obviously have a pretty healthy understanding of why some of us might think it crazy to miss one... that being said, I don't think the tone was out of line.... just a little tough love.
