We are taking pictures before the ceremong so we we will be doing the “first look” we are excited because it will our moment alone with no one else around but our photographer. By doing this we would be able to take enough pictures with our families after the ceremony and a few with the bridal party. I am not sure how long it takes to take all the necessary pictures but I certainly do not want to rushed because we don’t want to be late for the reception.

My friend only spent about 15min taking pictures and hardly anyone noticed. they planned it really well, knew what the posses where etc. Is it an option in taking your photos at the venue? and maybe even some on the bus (I think these would be cool)? If so take the ride with your guests and as soon as you reach the venue take the photos, at the stage I think that the guests would be talking to each other and no one really would care if you are away for about 15min, i think it is understandable that you are going to take pictures on your wedding day !

Our photographer suggested a first look to us, and I have to admit, there are many reasons why it makes sense logistically. I just couldn’t give up the walking down the aisle magical moment though. I wanted that to be the first time my FI saw me that day, all done up, and heading down the aisle to marry him. I think I’ve envisioned that since I was little, and in the end, it won out over logistics. We’re having about an hour and a half gap and there will be a cocktail hour that we won’t attend for the guests.
