One of the things I’ve learned about about wedding planning is the importance of a timeline. Later this week, I’ll be sharing with you who my coordinators and some tips I’ve learned from them about managing your timeline on the day of a wedding. One thing I’ve learned firsthand is that it seems squeezing in enough photos, in the perfect lighting, in the perfect setting, on the day of your wedding is sometimes next to impossible. Clearly you aren’t going to be able to hike up to your favorite mountaintop or swing by the beach in perfect weather.
That’s why we love the idea of planning an extra session with your photographer so you can find the ideal location, with no time constraints, and really get the images you were hoping for. Another plus to going this route is opting for a pricier photographer that perhaps you couldn’t afford for the wedding, but that might be able to work with you for a much shorter shoot on a weekday. And if your florist can recreate your bouquet–well, then it’s a win-win. And let’s not lie–what bride isn’t sad that she can only wear her dress on that ONE day?! I’m already a little teary thinking about it and I haven’t even worn my dress yet! So here are some beautiful images of Alexandra and Christopher, who asked Greg Ross to photograph them a few weeks after their wedding. We LOVE the bouquet by Dandelion + Grey, don’t you?
