.WEDDING DAY TIMELINE.


Organizing Your Wedding Day

Now I'm no expert when it comes to wedding planning, but I have enough weddings under my belt, enough to share with you what I've found to be the most stress-free wedding day flow timelines.

I personally would HIGHLY recommend hiring a planner if your budge allows. This point person will help with your wedding day organization. 

Each wedding is unique so these timelines are merely suggestions as many individuals will have to make adjustments. Before finalizing these details, we'll drill down even further so that I can provide you & your fiancé with the most tailored schedule for your day. [sunset time, location/weather, the amount of time required for portraits, length of ceremony, transportation time, etc.]

ROMANCE collections include 6, 8, 10 or full-day hourly coverage. Your timeline can be adjusted depending on whether you'd like more time during 'getting ready' photos or reception photos.

GETTING READY - Be sure to plan ample time for hair, make-up, eating lunch, transportation, getting into your dress [at least a half hour – brides underestimate this!] and portraits. It’s better to plan in more time than not enough.  So make sure you start getting ready early!
