Path to Business Podcast: Episode #48 – Our Craziest Wedding Story by Bethany and Luc Barrette from Grey Loft Studio, a wedding photographer & videographer husband and wife duo.


As a wedding photographer and videographer, we’ve experienced our fair share of eventful days, but nothing quite prepared us for the whirlwind that was the craziest wedding day we’ve ever had. It’s a story that’s taken some time to process, as the events of that day left us feeling like we had developed a bit of PTSD. But now, we feel ready to share our wild journey with you.

The Backstory: A Last-Minute Twist

It all started with a couple who had originally planned to tie the knot in 2020. Due to unforeseen circumstances, they had to cancel their wedding, but when they tried to reschedule, their original photographer was unavailable. That’s where we entered the picture, stepping in to capture their special day.

The Unthinkable Happens

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, the unexpected struck. The day before the wedding, the bride broke her leg. Yes, you read that right. Despite the setback, she was determined to go through with the ceremony, and we were there to support her every step of the way.

Weathering the Storm

As if a broken leg weren’t enough, Mother Nature decided to throw us another curveball. A storm was brewing on the horizon, threatening to derail the entire event. But undeterred, we forged ahead, navigating rain-soaked golf courses and power outages to capture every precious moment. A Wedding Photographer’s Tale: The Craziest Day Ever.

Making the Best of a Bad Situation

With the venue in disarray and the timeline thrown into chaos, we had to think on our feet. But thanks to quick thinking and a willingness to go the extra mile, we managed to salvage the day. From impromptu garage receptions to tearful moments captured in the living room, we made sure to document every twist and turn.

Reflections on a Wild Ride

Looking back on that unforgettable day, we can’t help but marvel at the resilience of the human spirit. Despite facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles, this couple’s love prevailed. And as for us, we emerged from the chaos with a newfound appreciation for the power of love and the importance of being prepared for anything.

Closing Thoughts: Going the Extra Mile

While we hope to never experience another day quite like that one, we’re grateful for the lessons learned and the memories made. And if there’s one thing we’ve taken away from this experience, it’s the importance of going above and beyond for our clients. After all, when it comes to capturing life’s most precious moments, there’s no such thing as too crazy or too wild.
