What happens in the case of rain?
The ceremony is held outdoors, rain or shine.  In the event of dangerous weather, please monitor the ECU alert web site for an announcement concerning cancellation of the event.  Also note:

If severe weather threatens, while the ceremony is in progress and attendees’ safety is at risk, the ceremony would be canceled and guests will be advised to seek shelter. The ceremony would not resume.
