Wedding Timeline Tips Every Couple Should Follow

Wedding Timeline Tips Every Couple Should Follow

If you want your wedding day to go off without a hitch, timing should be one of your topmost priorities. Creating a definite wedding day timeline is extremely important because even if you run late by a few minutes, you risk turning the entire day into a disorganized mess. The more detailed the timeline, the better.

Here are four tips for you to create a timeline that can help you avoid common wedding day pitfalls:

1. Create a timeline from scratch.

Every couple will have a unique wedding timeline. It will depend on families, friends, venues, vendors and even travel time. So you need to make sure that you create your timeline keeping all these things in mind. You can use online templates but do not expect them to work perfectly for your big day. It is best if you use them as a reference.

2. Think about how long hair and makeup will take and then add an extra hour to it.

Hair and makeup take up quite a big chunk of your prep time because it is something that simply cannot be rushed. If you don’t allow enough time for it, there is very little you can do to speed it up at the last moment. This becomes even more crucial if the entire bridal party is getting ready along with the bride because more people means more time.

3. Make sure everyone is prepared for family portraits.

No one is more happy for you on your big day than your family, but they are also sometimes unknowingly responsible for unanticipated situations like getting late for portraits. If everyone is not on the same page about timings, it can cause portrait sessions to drag out far longer than required. You need to ensure that everyone knows when the session will be held so that they remain at or near the location at that time.

4. Schedule everything.

It may sound a tad bit unnecessary but you should create a schedule for every single activity on your wedding day. That includes even the smallest things like the lunch menu or when you will have it. This will help you in avoiding stress and frustration on that day.

These little details may be important but at the end of the day, no matter what goes wrong, you are still going to get married to the love of your life. And that is what matters, not the logistics of the wedding!

Incredible Moments to Capture This Wedding Season

Incredible Moments to Capture This Wedding Season

Years come and go and the seasons keep changing, but the everlasting captures of one of the most joyous moments of your life keep taking you back to that day filled with fun, frolic, merry-making, and most importantly, love. A typical wedding day is anything but a piece of cake. While love lingers in the air, friends and family can be seen bustling and jostling around trying to get the event organized. Nevertheless, in between vined altars, perfect makeups, cold feet, and white lace veils, its the wedding photographers that sniff out the perfect iconic moments.

However, before we tell you about our top 7 wedding snapshots, here’s something you need to remember. If you’re searching for top wedding photography in New York, you’ll looking at professionals, thoroughly bred by the industry and crafted out of experience working personally to paint that perfect fairy-tale picture for you. This brings us back to our list, starting with:

  • The “bride-whisperers”-

We are talking about the color-coded, dolled up bridesmaids running around, clicking synchronized pictures with the pretty little bride in the middle.

  • The parental advisory-

No explicit scenes, just you and your father sharing a brief emotional moment before the wedding or you and your mother laughing over how old you’ve become. An everlasting moment captured right! .

  • The iconic throw-

Years later you and your girl troop will be laughing over this very moment, but for now, let’s just make this moment count with a picture of the iconic flower bouquet throw, eager faces in the back waiting for it to come down.

  • The ring-bearer-

The super cute niece or your four-legged bestfriend carrying the ring through the alter amidst the confetti and flower showers is a brilliant sight that deserves a quick capture.

  • The first dance-

The first of many to follow, the groom and bride shares an intimate moment in the middle of the dance floor with all their loved ones encircled around. The first dance, be it with the father or the mother or between the newlyweds itself is an incredible shot.

  • The family reunion-

Sure a wedding is all about the bride and groom but pictures of your grandparents dancing, your parents smiling at each other, your family cozying up for a picture with someone making a funny face behind are the kind of memories that you tend to cherish.

  • The wedding wagon-

Wedding pictures are simply incomplete without a picture of the wedding gateway car leaving the destination, the words “Just Married” scribbled on the back and the bride leaning out of the window waving her old life away!

There are probably a million other priceless pictures the photographers capture on the moment, but these incredible shots can hands down be the highlight of your wedding album.

Kia + Ken Wedding | The Fox Hollow Country Club | Long Island | 05.22.15

I loved photographing this wedding at The Fox Hollow Country Club in Long Island with the gorgeous couple, Kia and Ken. I shoot their engagement back in October in Central Park, since then we connect, we were exchanging ideas for their big day. Their wedding was such a blast from the getting ready to their first look and formal portraits at the Old Westbury Garden and finally their beautiful wedding at The Fox Hollow Country Club. When I edited their wedding photos, I definitely notice that everyone were having such a great time.

I’ve seen traditional money dances from Philippians weddings, but money dance at Kia and ken weddings were so much fun, they were surrounded by loving family and friends, everyone had such a blast, specially when some friends put Kia and Ken on chairs and put them on air.

Kia and Ken, may you have many years of blessings, fun and laughter together and we were delighted to be part of your amazing weddings!
