Real Wedding Wednesdays: Alexandra Corner and Colin Niemczura

Abbey Anspach

If you’re Alanis Morisette, you might think rain on your wedding day is a little bit ironic. Alexandra and Colin Niemscura might agree, based on the torrential downpour that occurred during their wedding. The real irony, however, was that being forced indoors by the rain was one of the best things to happen to them.

“At first, we were pretty bummed,” says Alexandra. “But the fact that things didn’t go the way we envisioned actually turned out to be a good thing.”

The bridal party, who never got the opportunity to rehearse the ceremony indoors, was forced to wing it. Alexandra says that by “living in the moment the ceremony actually seemed much more natural. And the beautiful exposed brick inside of the industrial-style Dock580 proved to be more of an upgrade then an alternative.

“[I’m] not sure why we didn’t plan an indoor ceremony all along!” Alexandra exclaims.

The high school sweethearts will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary this Sunday. We hope you have a wonderful, blue-skied day Alexandra and Colin!
