Albion River Inn Wedding in Albion, California || Ana + Cory

Anytime an event is planned outdoors in April on the Mendocino Coast there is a risk of rain showers. The day before Ana + Cory were to be married at Albion River Inn, it was pouring. I was starting to get a little nervous, so I ordered rain gear for myself and my camera. I contacted Cory and let them know that they may need an alternate plan for their ceremony. The forecast called for more of the same on their wedding day. They came prepared with clear umbrellas and water resistant boots.

On the day of their wedding, 10 minutes before we were supposed to start their bridals and family photos, it started raining sideways and then like magic when we stepped out of the car at Spring Ranch, an old cattle ranch in Little River, California, the downpour turned to a sprinkle. They hid beneath their umbrellas for a little while and then decided to live dangerously and dance in the rain.

As we approached the inn, the rain stopped entirely and they were able to have their ceremony on the lawn overlooking the ocean as planned. My words can not do this wedding justice, so you’re going to have to see it for yourself. So without further ado, Ana & Cory’s Albion River Inn Wedding:
