The title is from Ethan’s story for the Santa Barbara Independent. “It was in the darkness of the third power outage, a river of mud forming fast at the west end of the tent, that I realized I was living the wedding of my dreams.” ~ Ethan Stewart
It rained a lot on Anna and Ethan’s wedding day at El Capitan Beach State Park. The days before and after 11.11.11 were dry. But on Anna and Ethan’s wedding day, Pacific rain showered on everyone for their sea-side ceremony and poured into the night of their tented reception. By the end of the night, there wasn’t a dress or table cloth or shoe that wasn’t caked or splattered in mud. And there wasn’t a face that wasn’t smiling. Everyone just went with it, and it really was one of the most exuberant celebrations I’ve ever had the fortune to be present for!
If you haven’t had a chance to read Ethan’s story of their wedding, you really need to! It’s guaranteed to make you smile and it’s a great reminder to keep your spirits high even when your best laid plans get washed to sea! Thank you Anna and Ethan for that triumphant day!
