Check out Style Me Pretty's feature of this beautiful couple's wedding here!
Over here on the East Coast, we get all types of crazy weather and many couples often worry if their day will be sun-soaked or drowned in torrential downpour.
Enter Tracy and Dave's lake wedding! They got sun and rain and their wedding was still awesome. Like, really awesome. Although the day started with comfortable conditions, the mid-day thunderstorm happened to fall at the same time as the ceremony. Through some executive decision making, the wedding coordinator (Kaitlin - Cheers Darling) switched the cocktail and ceremony times to and everything worked out perfectly. In fact, I felt the rain made things look so much cooler since moisture has the ability to saturate colors and give texture to photos.
The weather did not affect Tracy and Dave one bit. I don't think anything could have. They were just the happiest and most cheerful couple ever. They even had a getaway boat!

I've never heard of Nara until my wife, being the animal lover she is, insisted that we go pay deer park a visit. It turned out a lot more fun (and scarier) than I thought it would! The deer at the park are very small, yet vicious when they know you have food. People (thankfully, not me) have gotten bruises from painful deer bites! The key is to never be the first person to purchase deer food--or else you will end up like my friend over here:
This lady was being chased by a horde of deer, in case you couldn't tell. With her distracting most of the deer, the rest of us felt safe to purchase deer food. Later on, we discovered that we didn't even need to spend our money buying food for them; they were perfectly happy eating the leaves that we helped them reach! A few of our friends also tried to feed the deer "lady and the tramp" style, if you get what I mean.
This was definitely a unique experience, and although I do not understand Japanese people's obsession with animals (cat cafe, owl cafe, hedgehog cafe, deer park, cat island, fox island, and bunny island), I am thankful that they enjoy these furry creatures.
