An unexpected snowstorm in Washington state crashed a couple’s wedding day but instead of getting panicked they enjoyed every bit of it.
Sean and Brittany Tuohy who live in Arizona were all ready for their big day on September 28, 2019 in the Spokane area. The couple grew up in the Pacific Northwest but they didn’t expect an out-of-season snowstorm.
”Nobody really anticipated it to turn into a full-blown blizzard,” Jaime Fletcher, the couple’s wedding photographer, told TODAY. Fletcher hadn’t met the couple before their wedding day but said she’s friends with Brittany’s maid of honor.
When the bride arrived at Bear Creek Lodge, near Mount Spokane, around 12 p.m. on Saturday, snow was already falling.
“I got up there and imagined they’d be in bad spirits and it was quite the opposite. They were laughing and giggling about how Brittany has the worst luck,” Fletcher said.
But they didn’t let snow ruin their day and made the most out of the situation they were unexpectedly landed in. Fletcher said the Tuohys and their friends decided to enjoy the snow.
“They said, ‘Let’s wing it and let’s do it,'” she said. “So we all ran outside and snapped those photos in minutes. It was pure anxiety and the conditions were awful. I didn’t know what to do!”
Luckily, the result turned out to be extremely beautiful and it created romantic vibes in the wedding party. Fletcher said the photos were exactly the way she expected but she was nervous to share them with the newlywed.
Fletcher said: “They didn’t anticipate snow on their wedding day, let alone snow flying in their faces at 30 miles per hour,”
“I was thankful they loved them as much as I do.”
“Nobody ever wants snow on their wedding day, but they do now!”
The newlywed is now enjoying their honeymoon in Munich, Germany. Sean Tuohy told TODAY in an email that the couple is surprised to see all the attention their wedding photos received and they are “extremely grateful.”
He said: “We never would have thought our spontaneous reaction to this snowstorm would get so much attention. Brittany pushed everyone to take pictures outside. Jaime did a fantastic job coordinating it inside. And then we all rushed out and just had fun,”
“We wouldn’t have changed that day for anything.”
