As things have changed over the years we’ve noticed that brides have become increasingly more interested in the “little details” and we’re not mad about it! (Let’s be real, we’re living in the age of Instagram!) Whether it’s the perfume the bride wears or a groom’s custom cufflinks… it’s a part of your wedding day story! As planners, we’ve always had an appreciation for details but from a bride’s perspective, it’s easy to get lost in the final months of planning and potentially overlook a special piece of jewelry or subtle touches that can take your detail shots to the next level…
This is exactly why we send a comprehensive list of suggested wedding day details to ALL of our couples leading up to the wedding! When it comes to details it’s better to give your photographer more to work with and potentially integrate into various styles of flatlays that you can cherish for years to come!

FOR THE BRIDE
- Vows (Pro Tip: Writing your own vows? Have a calligrapher handwrite your vows in custom booklets as a special keepsake!)

- Rings (Pro Tip: Ask your photographer if they have ring boxes for staging! If not, consider purchasing a heirloom ring box that is cohesive with your wedding colors!)
