Organized, smart couples ponder many questions as they pick a ceremony venue. Here is a common question directed towards me, their NYC wedding officiant: “What happens when it rains?” If you invite thirty guests to your marriage ceremony in a public park during colder weather, this is an especially important question. The responses will vary with the individual couples. I am flexible. Should the forecast predict rain on your wedding day and you love a particular niche that lacks shelter, I will simply bring an umbrella. Regardless of the weather, you will be married. And celebrating your love is ultimately what matters.
