Vintage taxi pictures around the city sounds so amazing! I wouldn’t worry to much about it. The day of you are going to be so excited and those pictures are going to be priceless!

We’re doing a first look and most pictures beforehand too, but planned on taking some time right before the ceremony to be apart and gather our thoughts, etc. 


He really wants us to plan to take fifteen minutes or so after the ceremony for ourselves though, before the whole party of the reception starts, which I think will be really nice.

We met up around 3:30 for our first look and finished up around 5:30, with the ceremony at 6 pm.

Honestly, not having time apart didn’t matter to me. If anything, it made the day easier. I can get pretty emotional, and I was able to walk down the aisle strong and confident, versus being a big baby (had to pull out my hankie twice during the ceremony as it was, and almost lost it once during the vows.) We separated maybe ten minutes before the ceremony-gave me time for a bathroom break and to check my makeup..I don’t think you need/see a reason for a larger time apart.
