Getting married can be very stressful and tense especially if the weather is bad, but this couple refused to let rain spoil their special day.

Stephanie Pepin and Max Santiago woke up to a really sunny day, however things went started to go bad by 4 p.m.

Concerning the weather, the wedding photographer, Kamila Harris, told The Huffington Post that "the sky darkened and the clouds just opened up buckets of rain, there was thunder, lightning, fog, zero visibility -- the works."

This caused a change in the venue for the photographs as the bridal party and family were supposed to take pictures on the piers in Williamsburg before the ceremony, but had to move to to a high-rise building balcony nearby after a few quick photos.

The bad weather also affected the wedding venue as part of it was  flooded in the storm, they ended up having to say their "I dos" in another part of the restaurant instead after the FDNY came to help pump out some of the water.

Despite all of this, the lovely couple kept their cool and took it really well.

"All we have ever wanted was to be together and married," the bride said. "Not only did we get what we wanted, but we also got a fantastic, hilarious, unexpected adventure and story to cherish with our friends and family."

"The couple dealt with it better than anyone I have ever seen deal with inclement weather," Harris told HuffPost, "the bride kept saying, 'i love thunderstorms, why is everyone freaking out, it's just rain,' and she kept a huge smile on her face throughout the mad dashes in torrential downpours. She is awesome."

"The [couple] was soaking wet, but their clothes seemed to dry out," Harris added. "Or they just didn't have a care in the world and just wanted to be married. Nothing was going to stop them that day."

Their attitude shows in the pictures as they all turned great and showed the couple's upbeat attitude.

I can not help but wonder if this would happen in Nigeria, where most brides get upset over really little things.
