You know what they say about rain being lucky on your wedding day?

In Texas, the weather can be as unpredictable as it is beautiful. Couples planning their dream wedding in Texas often face the ultimate question: Will the skies stay clear, or will Mother Nature try to rain on my parade? This was the case on a chilly January wedding day at The Wayback in Austin, Texas, where Chandler and Toni found themselves dealing with freezing rain as they prepared to say "I do."
