Planning Your Wedding Day Photography Timeline

Here’s a sample of our wedding photography timeline we suggest to all our Ardensea brides and grooms!

Making Bride & Groom Portraits a Priority on Your Wedding Day

Running out of time is the biggest reason why couples skip over the bride and groom portraits, so it’s important to plan for at least 30-minutes to an hour for newlyweds to step away and capture wedding day pictures.

A Modern Jupiter Florida Wedding

Classic weddings always remain timeless in style. Danielle and Chris’s Jupiter Florida wedding was the perfect wedding to end 2018 with. Two strong believers of their faith getting together with the most loving families – it just doesn’t get any better than that! You may remember Danielle and Chris from their Mounts Botanical Downtown Palm Beach Engagement Session earlier this year! Working with these two have been an absolute dream and I can’t wait to see their relationship grow.

Christ Fellowship Church

They started their big day at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter At Harbourside Place for some breathtaking getting ready bridal portraits. Danielle just makes the most absolutely breathtaking bride! The hotel had ceiling tall curtains and perfect window lighting. What a dream! They then made their way to their chapel at Christ Fellowship Church in Palm Beach Gardens. A very tearful ceremony was then commenced and let me tell you, there was barely a dry eye in the room. (Me included – I am such a SAP!) The chapel was completely transformed into a gorgeous winter wonderland. Bridal Party Portraits were held right outside the church as the sun was setting which was an absolute blessing! As a wedding photographer, you don’t always get lucky with bridal party portraits happening right at Golden Hour, so we had an awesome time getting those sunkissed shots!

Out of the Blue Waterfront Events

Another quick hop in the limo and they were off for their cocktail hour and reception at Out of The Blue Waterfront Events in Jupiter. They finished out the evening with their closest friends and family, dancing, singing, and the occasional smooch. Classic, timeless, and downright fun!

Let’s all wish Danielle and Chris a life of happiness! Congrats, you too!
