“making memories of us”
We all know how important the day of the wedding is, but we cannot forget about all those fun and crazy events leading up to the momentous occasion. It has become increasingly common for couples to have photography coverage at wedding rehearsals, rehearsal dinners and bridal showers to document the wedding frenzy you endure with family, friends & loved ones. After all, we know the “big day” isn’t really just about that day. If you are married, I think you will agree that you spend way more time planning a wedding than actually participating in it! With family in town and excitement built up, I believe there are some amazing moments waiting to be captured at these events. So for all you couples, this might be something you want to keep in mind when doing your wedding planning. Who knows – you might get that shot of Mom crying because she finally saw Aunt Sue after 5 years. Or you might get that shot of Uncle Ted getting a lil’ too tipsy thanks to the open bar. Whatever the case, these are moments worth looking back on and worth the extra planning for.
Here are examples of a wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner I shot in August 2007. Thanks to Dustin & Wendi and their families for such a great time! As you can tell from the pics, they had a blast as well! Click here to see photographs from their beachfront August wedding!
