Anna and John probably imagined a sunny spring day in the Fragrance Garden when they chose Red Butte Garden for their wedding venue. But the rain arrived as we were setting up and didn't let up. After moving ourselves and our instruments back into the lobby, we ran back out in a golf cart to retrieve the rest of our gear. And we waited. And waited. But the rain was relentless. It was finally decided that the ceremony would take place inside the Orangerie.
Anna and John are both science students; the teacher that introduced them officiated the wedding! It was nerdy in the best possible way. As a math nerd myself, I feel a true affinity for fellow nerds. It was also romantic. Through the changes and assumed disappointments, everyone was all smiles. And just as the lunch wrapped up, the sun broke through the clouds (could it be because we played Here Comes The Sun?) and the wedding party was able to roam the garden for their wedding photos.
