One of my best friends just started really planning her wedding and while we were on the phone chatting about what she’s looking for in a photographer (I’m going to be a guest, I can’t even believe it! I’m so excited! I’m probably going to dance until Natalie falls over.) and the same thing kept coming up. Lack of information about everything. Was the wedding she was looking at real? How much did it cost? When was the wedding? How many guests could really expect to be in that venue? After I hung up, I kinda sat there for a second. Having started So You’re EnGAYged in 2008, I was surrounded by the wedding blog world for a long long time. I could spot a fake wedding but realized my friend couldn’t. I can tell what time of year or time of day a photograph was taken usually, but most people can’t. So today, for Jessica and Heather’s Exchange Conference Center in Boston, I want to take it up a notch. You’ll be noticing more information about the weddings themselves on my blog. What did it take to make this, all the lovely pictures you see and all the happy emotions, come to life. At the bottom of the post you’ll get the stats of the day. If you like this, tell me. Write a comment. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org- or perhaps you have an idea of something you really want to see that’s not here. I’m totally open.
Date: 7.20.12 // Weather: Cloudy at times but then brilliant sunshine // Time we started really doing before ceremony couple shots: 4:40 // Ceremony: 5:30
My favorite light of the day for pictures: 7:30 // Photobooth? Yes, you can tell the props wandered around // Planner: Extensive planning by 14 Stories
Fun thing to think about: The exit from the ceremony. They went up in an elevator for some alone time but I caught them smooching before the door closed.
Lesson learned: Shoes huuuuurt sometimes. Always have comfy backup flats with you.
