As a Wedding Photographer, I have been to many many weddings. Although most weddings have the same timeline flow, many weddings have unique elements that are special to the couple. I highly suggest that when you are planning your wedding that you try to implement some unique aspects into your wedding day! Below are some ideas that I have seen carried out well. I even personally used some of these ideas on my own wedding day! This is your day, make it YOURS.
Getting Ready Magic
The “getting ready” portion of the day is one of my favorites. There is so much joy, love, and the anticipation is palpable. You and your girls are getting pampered and beautified! Everyone is looking and feeling their absolute best. It is so special to be able to capture these sweet moments with people who mean so much to you! Gifting your gals matching robes/jammies is such a wonderful way to say thank you and to capture the essence of your relationships. Hugging and giggling, mimosa toasts, confetti bombs…capturing all of that joy! This makes for some adorable photos! You will not regret having these sweet memories captured.
Having a First Look is the perfect way to add something special to your wedding day. This is such an intimate time where you and your honey can actually be alone and really soak in what is about to happen. If you are anything like me, and your future husband is your best friend, you will not regret having a special moment to see each other and absorb all of the emotions together!
