In the planning stages, this is probably one of the top questions I get, and I will tell you– there is no right or wrong answer. I think it’s all personal preference and I absolutely see and understand the why each option would be attractive in it’s own right.
2.) This might be your only alone time together… all day… Crazy right? But it’s true. Weddings are fun, exciting and can be a little hectic. You’re being rushed away from one location to another, and since you’re the center of attention, you’ll have family and friends surrounding you all day long.
3.) You get to mingle, say your hello’s and celebrate your big day at cocktail hour. Cheers to that!
Unplugged Ceremonies are growing in popularity as Smart Phones, Facebook, Instagram and SnapChat become almost a way of life for us. In the 3.5 years I’ve been shooting weddings, I’ve noticed that more and more people are hiding behind their phones during ceremonies, watching the bride through a (sometimes cracked) piece of glass, instead of being fully present in that moment.
Becky + Dan got married at the gorgeous Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, Massachusetts. They chose a mid-December wedding date, and while Mother Nature didn’t deliver snow, she did hit us with some freezing cold (negative) temperatures the day of. These guys were total champs when it came to grabbing a few quick shots outdoors. We loved your laid back, go-with-the-flow personalities. Congrats to Becky + Dan on tying the knot!
