It’s an Argentinian superstition that if you stick a knife in ground on your wedding day it will ward off the stormy clouds. Heather and Carlo stuck two knives in the ground but the rain came down fast and hard the whole afternoon up until the exact moment when Heather was about to walk down the aisle. The cars were ready to take the bridal party up to the farmhouse but the original plan had been to walk there. I’ll never forget Heather saying “Stuff it! I’m walking”… and we walked! Up the muddy road, with the sun streaming into the valley and a perfect rainbow behind us. It was truly a beautiful mess. Not what they had planned but no less special.
The rest of the evening unfolded beautifully. Laurentina’s, Cacti, Open fields and Zulu dancing!
