No matter whose wedding it is, no matter which venue is chosen, as a wedding photographer, I always hope that wedding day is the day that the bride and groom can really sit back and enjoy themselves throughout. I hope that on their wedding day, the only thing that matters is becoming husband and wife, and treasuring that everyone they love and who loves them is there with them in that moment. In the beginning of the wedding photography process when our communication begins, I never forget to remind them why they hire professionals to handle their most precious moments. So that when the wedding day comes, they have people there that they can trust to make their wedding dreams come to life, and therefore giving the bride and groom permission to enjoy themselves and not to worry about the small details. We, as vendors, have got their back.
In order to help you understand how the timeline plays out on wedding day, I’m going to explain below each part:
The Wedding Details
The wedding details are photographed usually within the first 30 minutes of your wedding photography coverage. This is the time that your photographer captures the big and small details, from the wedding venue to the invitation suite, and anything in between.
This usually takes up about 1.5-2 hours of your wedding day timeline, as your photographer will begin with the bride’s final touches for hair and makeup, the groom finishing his look, and the bride getting into her gown. After finalizing the overall look, this is the time that any first looks usually happen. For this wedding, they opted for a traditional wedding day timeline, but did a first look with the bridesmaids and the bride’s father. It was an emotional moment, and I highly recommend creating these intentional moments.
The ceremony is exactly what it sounds like. From beginning to end, for a non-catholic wedding, this usually takes 1-1.5 hours of time, from the time the guests begin arriving to the ceremony location to the end of the ceremony when the bride and groom are pronounced husband and wife.
The Wedding Party
Following the family portraits is usually the wedding party photos. This is where we (or you and your photographer) take group shots as a wedding party, bride and bridesmaids, groom and groomsman, and if the bride and groom want, individual photos with each of their friends. This is all personal preference of the bride and groom, and the timeline should allow for either choice.
The Bride & Groom
This is the finale of the formal wedding photos, as the bride and groom have finally been pulled in enough directions and they can take a moment just the two of them to embrace each other, kiss a few too many times, and remember that they just got married. Awesome.
The reception is usually the most fun part of the wedding day for everyone. It’s a true celebration of everything that happened that day, complete with yummy food and stiff drinks. Your photography coverage will usually run from the beginning of the reception, when everyone is introduced to the end of the special events: cake cutting, bouquet toss, first dances, etc.
There you have it, folks. The Toolshed at Breitenbach Winery is the perfect Ohio wedding venue. Timelines matter. But living in the moment on your wedding day matters the most!
