WEDDING TIMELINE

We've created two different timelines to help you structure your wedding day.
We highly recommend you use these as a guide when preparing for your wedding.
Looking forward to chatting with the two of you and finalizing all the details!

We've put an example sunset time, so all you'll need to do it input the correct sunset time
for your wedding day and adjust accordingly.


 

Full Day with First Look:

(Bride's hair + makeup needs to be done by 2, we arrive about 15 mins before to shoot the final touches)

Bride Gets in Dress | 2:20
Individual Portraits of B + G | 2:45
First Look + Exchange Letters | 3:10
Bridal Party Portraits | 3:30-4:30
Family Portraits | 4:30-5:00
Ceremony | 5:30
Bride + Groom Portraits | 6:00-7:00
SUNSET | 7:00
Entrance (we suggest going right into first dance +
formal dances) | 7:15

The rest of the evenings structure is entirely up to you! We suggest that, if you're doing a sparkler exit, you only have about 30-45 mins of open dance floor and leave early. Otherwise, people will leave before your exit and it will not illuminate the way that you see in our photos.
