Even though the rain didn't quite stay away, it was still a beautiful Cape Cod spring day. Leigh Ann and Jay were married at the Red Jacket Beach Resort in South Yarmouth.

When I arrived it was as gray as ever, with a chilly drizzle that just wouldn't stop. We did family portraits outside, even with the weather! What a great group. Bride and groom and I (along with some helpful groomsmen) strayed out into the sand for a few photos during a break in the drizzle. I always love when a bride is willing to come on a small adventure in her wedding dress; even more impressive is when it's before the ceremony! It's not easy keeping sand off of everything but we did our best! Sadly this was my first time back to the beach since my engagement session with this same couple back in November! I need to make it to the beach more often for fun instead of just shooting weddings and engagements! But that's still as good a reason as any for me :-)

DJ Jake Jacobsen of Cape Tunes kept everyone moving and having a great time at the reception.
