A Simply Perfect Wedding Day | Spend Quality Time Before the Wedding Nuptials
Welcome back for Part Two of our “A Simply Perfect Wedding Day” Series. We are revisiting Rebecca & Jake’s wedding at the beautiful Historic London Town & Gardens. As wedding photographers in Maryland, we’ve seen a ceremony or two. And as we mentioned in the first installment, we thought that there were SO many wonderful things that they did right, that we wanted to share some wedding day advice!
Part Two will be centered around treating yourself to some quality time together as bride and groom before guests arrive for your nuptials. This allows for a relaxed bride and groom photo session (ahem, see Part One about a First Look), unhurried family and bridal party photos as well as time built in to freshen up, relax and get ready for the big day! Let’s dive into why these benefits are, in fact, so beneficial!
Treat Yourself…and Your Significant Other
Spending Quality Time before the Wedding Nuptials allows for a relaxed bride and groom photo session. This has become commonly known as a First Look. This allows the bride and groom to spend some intimate, alone time to center themselves on what the day is all about: each other. This also minimizes the amount of time dedicated to pictures after the ceremony. Speaking of cutting down wait time before the reception…
Spending Quality Time before the Wedding Nuptials allows for you, as the bride and groom, to not only take pictures together, but grab those cherished photos with your families and wedding party as well. We all know that one family member that can’t be tracked down for photos because they’ve already hit the cocktail bar. Taking pictures with family before the wedding starts creates an easier transition, for everyone, between the ceremony and reception.
Spending Quality Time before the Wedding Nuptials also creates built in time to freshen up, relax, and get ready. This becomes especially important if you plan to take any photos outdoors. Needless to say, Mother Nature can be unpredictable. Being able to cool-off/warm-up and reapply makeup and perfume/cologne is essential for looking and feeling your best, and there is no other day in which that is more important.
