Isn’t it time to think about weddings
a little differently?
Weddings are often defined by tradition and age old beliefs. It’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony. Ceremony first, reception after. White dress, high heels, beef or fish. The list is endless. We forget that it’s about the couple. It’s their day to commit to each other for the rest of their lives. And while tried and true wedding rituals work for many, let’s take a moment to raise a glass to the ones who make the day uniquely theirs.
In 2015, my husband Jamie and I got married. We said "I do" at the end of our reception, on the dance floor under the stars. I wanted the day to build up to that moment instead. Our officiant read an excerpt from 'The Most Astounding Fact' by Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson and we had breakfast for dinner. Why? Because that was a reflection of who we are. That, and because I really like waffles.
What is my dream location to shoot, if I could go anywhere? Shooting a wedding at Burning Man has always resonated with my hippy soul and I'm dying to shoot a Vegas elopement with an Elvis officiant. Any takers?
I want to wade barefoot out to a sandbar in Tofino where vows are exchanged surrounded by ocean as the tide closes in around us, and I want to hike to some peak with a wedding dress in my backpack and shoot a ceremony as sunrise climbs over the horizon.
We'll be a perfect fit if you just want to have fun, celebrate, embrace spontaneity and go with the flow. Without the stress and without Pinterest boards. It's not about how many tiers there are on the wedding cake. It's about you, your guests, candid unexpected moments and love.
