The day didn't go exactly as planned. We woke up to rain, wind, and surprisingly chilly weather. However, having lived in Seattle for years, Mr. CP and I weren't about to let a little rain stop us from getting married on the beach. So what if my hair got wet? I'd be a frizzy bride! So what if it was shockingly cold? I'd be my something blue! Come hell or high water, we were getting married on that beach at sunset.
I hadn't planned on wearing a cardigan for the ceremony. Thankfully, I had packed this teal beauty just in case the evenings got chilly. So, I threw it on over my dress, buttoned on the bug brooches that Mr. CP got me for Christmas, and off I went to get married! To be honest, I'm thankful for the twist of fate that forced me to don one of my trademark cardigans for our wedding. I felt like me in a way I don't think I would have had I just worn a plain old strapless dress.
