Going Unplugged for your Ceremony

What is an unplugged wedding ceremony

 

Your wedding day is special so it's understandable why everyone wants to capture it with their phones. Unfortunately, phones can really ruin your ceremony photos. Phones are distracting and can cause disruptions during the ceremony and in your wedding photos.

 

We recommend that all our couples request a phone free wedding ceremony. Don't worry, we will be there to capture every moment perfectly so no one will miss out on that great photo.

 

Every wedding package includes a photo release form so you will be able to download and save your wedding images.

If you want to have a phone-free ceremony here are a few tips on how to implement that rule for your guests.

  • Add a note on the invitations about your no-phone "unplugged" ceremony
  • Add a note and explanation on your wedding website
  • Create a cute wedding ceremony sign for a reminder on the day of
  • Communicate this plan with your wedding planner so they can help implement and kindly remind guests during the ceremony

Wedding Day Timelines

We are here to help you schedule the perfect wedding day timeline that fits your preferences and needs. Explore our two different wedding timeline options below.

We recommend a "first look" to all our brides. It is the best way to organize your wedding photos and allow for a very special moment between you and your spouse. But is a "first look" right for your wedding day? We will give you all the details to discover if a "first look" timeline fits into your wedding.
