No one invites the rain to their wedding. It’s a rather unwelcome guest when it shows up. But the wild chaos that it stirs indeed makes for a good story—as long as the couple has a sense of humor. Hell, rain can even make the scene prettier, by bringing out nature’s dark colors beneath a hazy sky and testing two lovebirds right out of the gate.

That’s pretty much what happened when Leah and Anthony tied the knot at Audrey’s Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast in rural New York. The pair weathered the challenge spectacularly well and it only made them seem more in love. Wedding photographer Brogen Jessup captured the big day wonderfully and we had to know more.

When a fashion blogger and a southern gentleman get hitched, there's a lot of ground to cover. The wedding day should be rustic, yet stylish; gorgeous, yet not overdone. Luckily, and unsurprisingly, Jess and Dustin nailed it. The best example of the lovebirds keenly strutting such a balancing act had to be the bride rocking a Jenny Packham gown with converse high-tops.

What made the special day so memorable, however, aside from the couple's favorite human beings in the world being there to cheer and congratulate, was the venue itself. A sweetly southern farm that covers 160 acres of Georgia woodland, sprinkled with meadows and ponds, Sweet Meadow Farms stirred up the impression that Jess and Dustin were tying the knot at a beloved relative’s country home.
