The BEST piece of advice I can give a couple about their ceremony is to high tail it outta there when it’s over. You just got MARRIED!!! Spend a few private moments with your new hubby. You have all the reception to hung friends and family and recieve your congratulations from everyone. But the time for that is not right after the ceremony. PLUS, when you sneak out of the ceremony area, not only do you get those intimate moments with your new spouse, you get so much more time for pictures!
At Emily & Jonathan’s wedding we were able to wisk them away and walk to their reception area with them. AND they made it back in plenty of time to get a sneak at the untouced reception venue, visit with people at their cocktail hour, and sneak off to their own room to take a breather before the party started! And this reception was a serious party!
Seeing the reception area for the first time! .. I think she liked it..
Emily & Jonathan created an “our story” table at the reception where they walked their guests through their relationship. It was SO cute, such a good idea!
I loved these wildflower centerpieces.
Introducing the new Mr. & Mrs. Huss!!!
To all future groomsmen.. lifting up the groom during the dancing portion of the evening makes for excellent pictures.
Same goes for the bride 😉
