Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Wedding Day Formals are the unsung heroes of your wedding photos gallery. Though my clients love how I capture the candid and informal moments throughout their days, the posed family and wedding party portraits are actually some of the most printed/shared/and loved images from any wedding. Formal portraits are lightly posed groupings of your loved ones all looking at the camera (and hopefully smiling and not blinking ;) ).

Your Perfect Wedding Day Schedule

Your Perfect Wedding Day Schedule

In life I’m a planner and a list maker. I don’t do any job, take any trip or throw a dinner party without sitting down and working through the details in list after list (flight and hotel information, menus, timeline for cooking, who has what allergies, etc. etc.). I’ve found that even when (especially when!!) I want something to feel laid back and fun I need to consider these plans beforehand because when you go into anything well prepared and well thought out it’s so much easier to relax and enjoy the experience. Your wedding day is exactly the same. If you set up a schedule that accurately allows time needed for each task and builds in some cushion here and there you are way more likely to have a day that is stress free and fun, even if things run behind a bit or something unexpected comes up.

Times Square Terrace Wedding: Jennifer and Eric

Times Square Terrace Wedding: Jennifer and Eric

As the curtain went up on the tour of "Mama Mia" there was a full audience, a lot of energy on the stage, and two lovely folks meeting in the wings. Jennifer and Eric's friendship began right there, with the songs of Abba surrounding them. After multiple shows, tours, and adventures Jen and Eric got married steps away from Times Square and Broadway. Despite the location and though they are both part of the showbiz industry their wedding was simple and intimate, taking place on a greenery-laden private terrace. Their close family and friends (and adorable dog ring-bearer Betty White) joined them to celebrate on the beautiful New York City fall evening.
