There may be additional factors to consider when estimating the timeline for your wedding day.  Are the getting ready locations for the bride and groom close by?  Is there a long drive between your ceremony spot and your reception location?  Do you have a large wedding party that would increase the time for formals?  

It's so important to us that our couples are beyond happy with the work we deliver.  We believe that pacing the day is ideal. Minimizing stress is the best way to try to capture all the moments your heart is set on! We definitely don't want one of the most memorable days of your lives being rushed through by trying to cram everything into a certain time limit.

A good rule of thumb is, if you're wondering if you need coverage for, "x," the answer is yes! If you didn't want it, the thought wouldn't have crossed your mind. We provide options so our couples know that their needs are being met and any of their concerns are heard. We've never heard couples say they regret having additional hours of coverage, but we have heard the opposite.

We hope this guide helps, and as always, feel free to send along any additional questions that you may have to us! We're always happy to help!
