“Rain, rain, you’re welcome to stay. I’ll buy new boots and laugh anyway!”

While I never heard those words come from Lauren herself, her disposition all morning long was sun-shiney bright.

Knowing that rain was probable the whole day through, she gleefully bought a brand new pair of gray Hunter boots, which she had always wanted, and paired them with an umbrella to match her soft pink rose bouquet. These accessories went perfectly with her mother’s 70s retro wedding gown reinvisioned as a modern tea length dress. Retro Mod was the theme of the day.

Dave, our gregarious groom was a great sport, too. Embracing the rain, he and his bride-to-be shared their first look and a bit of a stroll through the glistening streets of Saratoga. Then it was off to the ceremony, officiated by close friend Ryan Olson, at Universal Preservation Hall, followed by lots of dancing!
