A magical grand exit, whether it be after the “I DO”, or at the end of the night, is a great way to get your guests involved, end the event, and get some killer pictures. We have seen these done a lot of different ways with lots of twists, and honestly, they are often the highest point of the evening. From singing “Sweet Caroline” in the middle of the dance floor with all your loved ones surrounding your, to being raised on chairs, to running out of the venue, your grand exit will be what your guests remember. Make it fun and make it YOU.
Technology is EVERYWHERE. It is awesome to have a built-in camera on our phone to be able to let everyone know what you are doing as you are doing it. Being plugged in has its perks, but during a wedding, we are hoping guests will be plugged into the moment. That they will be watching you walk down the aisle with their eyes and not through the screen of their cell phone.
Why should you ask your photographer for your wedding timeline? You don’t get married every weekend… we do!

A fun idea we love to suggest to larger bridal parties is to have a first look with your bridesmaids to show off your dress!

Your wedding day is the longest, shortest day of your life. It starts early and before you know it, it is over.

Here are some great ways to create these authentic moments throughout your day.
This is your day too! We can’t wait to see what you come up with just as much as we can’t wait to see your beautiful brides dress. Make what you wear your own. If you were ever going to buy a suite, your wedding day is the day to do it. Get creative, have fun with what you wear. You should NOT look like your groomsmen. You SHOULD stand out and feel amazing!
