The hour before sunset approached with no sign of the storm abating. The late afternoon sky was dark as James and Victoria readied for their surprise elopement. The couple had not told any of their friends and family back in Canada about their plans, as they wanted to surprise them with sunset ceremony photos to share the happy news.
Just as the ceremony started, the sky parted, and a column of sunlight showed at the water’s edge. To the left and right of the couple, hard rain fell, but on the ceremony spot on the beach, it was clear and dry. After their vows, the sky turned a dark shade of orange, and the sunset was a breathtaking deep hue. Victoria, glamorous in her sequined gown, only had eyes for James.
