We are getting married on the shore of Lake Tahoe in September of this year. The venue is a state park, the ceremony will be casual, and we’ll have 18-20 guests. We have the photographer for 3 hours, and I’m trying to figure out how best to use that time. I’ll be getting ready 30 minutes from the venue, so I’m thinking about cutting out the getting ready photos to avoid wasting 30 minutes of travel time. The timeline will look something like this:
5pm done getting ready, travel to ceremony site
6-6:30 beach toast (should I have picnic snacks?)
6:30-7:30 photographs (sun sets at 7:10) (what will guests be doing during this time?)
8pm restaurant dinner reception (30 minutes away)
So, the question is: Factoring in the 30 minute drive time, should I use the extra 30 minutes of photography time on getting ready photos or reception dinner photos? Thanks so much! And any other suggestions on how to improve this timeline in general are welcome!!
