Category Archives: TIPS ON TUESDAY
There are so many interesting wedding traditions and here is one that I would like to share. If you are having an outdoor ceremony this tradition meets a lot of criteria:
- Easy to do
- A great keepsake
Ok enough suspense here !!!! Here is it: A GOOD WISH ARCHWAY
You may not heard of this tradition before but it is a called a good wish archway. One of the best parts is that it gets the guests involved too!!! Each guest will write a wish to the bide and groom on a one yard long piece of material with a marker Of course you would want the material to match the main color of your wedding. The material is then attached to an arch that the bride and groom will walk through. The is a great way to enter the ceremony surrounded by well wishes from friends and family. With a bit of wind it will make a fantastic image for a wedding album.
So now the wedding is over and what to do with the well wishes ? The can be collected and stored in a keepsake box.
I hope you enjoyed this unique wedding tradition.
It’s been one year since I have been in this cold dark freezer !!!! I have lost my flavorful taste and my colorful glow.
When you purchase your wedding cake, purchase a extra topper for your one year anniversary. Frozen cake is not way to help celebrate your first year as a couple.
I bet that headline got your attention !!!. No one wants to shrink especially if it is one of the most important days in your life. The week before the wedding was rainy and even the morning of the wedding was rainy as well. After the ceremony, the bridal party and the bride were walking on a beautiful brick walkway. As the bride move off the walkway, her stiletto heels sunk four inches in the soft grass !!!!!
There are so many details to take care of in a wedding and a backup pair of shoes is a great idea. Flip flop or flat shoes work great as long as the bridal dress is not short.
It’s been a busy summer and only one more wedding scheduled for the year.
I was really surprised shooting at two venues this year with their lack of professionalism. Mary and I have attended some upscale venues and some on the lower end “Everyone has a budget”. In one instance there was a tractor and trailer park in the venue parking lot. Fortunately I was able to position myself and not get the tractor and trailer in the images. It would have been nice for the venue to move it in advance of the wedding ceremony.
The worst one happened recently. A small catering company had a VERY nice Gazebo, nice landscaping and red brick walkway. The bride made her entrance from the rear of the venue and had to walk a long distance to the reach the short brick walkway. The venue failed to remove the dumpster, trash cans and blue bread cases for the rear of the venue. The back of the building also need a paint job!!! There was no maneuvering to eliminate the eyesore the venue presented.
I mean how hard would it be for the venue to paint the back of the building a nice color, remove the trash cans and maybe even provide the bride with a red carpet to walk on instead of black asphalt.
I am sure the couple were shown a nice gazebo but not the back of the building.
Don’t take anything for granted and ask questions…
End of rant..
Circa 1987.. The Fujifilm QuickSnap 35mm Single Use camera is released…Someone came up with a creative idea of placing a few single use cameras on top of each table at a wedding. This was a way for Brides and Grooms to get images from guests. A great idea but really these cameras produced terrible images.
I was at Rachel’s and Roger’s wedding this past weekend at the Sweetwater Country Club and noticed an update for the old idea. Rachel and Roger provided a self address envelope with postage and a CD. The intent is for the guests to burn a disk and send it to them. I thought this was a great idea !!!!
Technology in cameras and cellphones have really advanced. The image quality is a lot better than it use to be. The only issue I see is getting images from a cell phone to a CD.. Hopefully their guests got some great images from the wedding !!!
An outdoor wedding is always a fantastic approach to a wedding ceremony. Unfortunately, we do have those dog days of summer !!! I have seen many a guest sweating from the hot sun. Fear not… the site favorfavor comes to the rescue with an innovative, decorative and inexpensive product to help make your guests a bit more comfortable. The white silk Fan is the perfect solution and adds a nice touch when place on the chari for each guest.
I really wish this was my idea. It is so creative and I wanted to share it with all my visitors. Instead of just using the standard table number,why not name the tables?
You can use local names for the tables such as… Sands Casino- Steel Stax- Music Fest..Main Street. You get the idea. You could use places you visited together.
What a cool idea and I hope you find this useful for your wedding day.
I came across this article by theweddingreport.com and it contains some very insightful information. It is always better to budget some extra time for your wedding photography to make sure all of the important images to you are captured. Once the flowers have died, the tables cleared, the wedding is over, your images live on to remind you of how perfect your wedding day was.
This was an interesting read from http://www.theweddingreport.com and I hope you find the information helpful.
Should you go Traditional or First Look? Something else to consider for your wedding day.
There is an excellent article written on the first look by EverLastDetail and you can read the whole article below:
The big advantage of the first look is” You will have created spectacular images that you can enjoy for the rest of your life”
I believe another advantage is the stress factor. The first look is less stressful for the bride and groom. As a photographer, you can schedule more time for creating those special images for the bride and groom.
A great article by everylastdetail !!
I found an interesting article from www.weddingstand.com. Everyone has a budget and many times it is really difficult what to cut back on.
On average, couples that live in Lehigh Valley spend between $21,242 and $35,403 total for their total wedding.
The weddingstand wrote an interesting article on what items not to skimp on and why. On a personal note I would move number three to the bottom of the list but that is just my opinion. I hope you find this article interesting and informative.
