Choosing your wedding details is one aspect of wedding day that is so important to me, especially in working with your photographer! Take a few moments at the beginning of the wedding day to style and capture these small details. It will leave you with images you will cherish forever. Because my couples have chosen and invested in specific items, I know that they are important to them, and I want them to be thoughtfully captured in their wedding day images. Here are my tips on the things I think every bride will be thankful for incorporating in their wedding day details:
From your invitation, to menus, to ceremony programs, your wedding day paper goods are one of my favorite things to style and capture. To me, these really bring the full aesthetic and story of the wedding day together. Go with a design that you love and you feel represents you and your partner well.
The jewelry you wear on your wedding day is something you will most likely remember forever. Did you borrow a special ring from a family member? Did your fiancé gift you a special new piece? Spend time with your mom picking out the perfect earrings? Do you have a special box for them?! Even better, bring it along. Leave your shoes in the original bag or box and let’s capture those!
One thing I love to curate are table details. These are also so fun to get a photo of at the beginning of the wedding day. Work with your stylist to bring together textures from linens and gorgeous colored napkins that compliment your place cards. Pull those into your detail photos! Of course, you will have images of them on the table, but there’s something about having a specific piece with your new name!
Overall, you won’t go wrong bringing any and all small wedding day details to your planner and photographer to capture for you. Choosing everything in a cohesive color palette with textured and stunning accents is key! This ensures you will have gorgeous images to compliment your wedding gallery at the end of your day!
