Dark Sky saved my wedding day.
First of all, thanks to all you awesome backers! We've just about reached the 10% funded point and things are really ramping up. Be sure to tell everyone you know (friends, family, therapists, that cute guy you see on the subway every day) about us!
Secondly, I'd just like to leave a little anecdote here:
I got married this past June. We decided to have the wedding outdoors, on the banks of the beautiful Connecticut River. Fearing rain, we got a big ol' tent to house the reception, but we really wanted the ceremony outside overlooking the river and were hoping we could keep the rain at bay with happy thoughts and magical incantations.
Unfortunately, I woke up the day of the wedding to find grey skies... Grey skies that gradually gave way to light rain... Rain that they forecasted would last all day.
Every time the rain would die down, I'd get hopeful, only to have that hope dashed with the precipitation's return. As the time of the ceremony approached, we had to make a decision whether to keep everything under the tent, or go ahead as planned. Everyone told us not to chance it and just have the ceremony under the tent.
Dark Sky saved my wedding day!
