There is no better way for a bride to learn the ins and outs of wedding planning than from a former bride herself! It is in this spirit that I’m excited to launch the Real Bride Series – where we’ll hear from past brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with!
Real Bride – MEGAN
Married April 26, 2014 at
Morais Vineyards in Bealeton, VA
Q: How many people attended your wedding?
Q: How much time did you have to plan your wedding?
A: 1.5 years
Q: Did you have help with the wedding planning?
A: My mom
Q: If there is one thing that you could have done differently what would it be?
A: Tough question because we were lucky enough to have our wedding day go very smoothly. I would probably say hiring a videographer would have been nice. The photos captured the wedding perfectly, but having a clip of the ceremony and Best Man/Matron of Honor speeches would have been nice.
Q: What was the biggest challenge that day?
A: Staying calm! It was not too much of a challenge per say, but more of constantly reminding myself to slow down and take it all in.
Q: What was one of the most memorable moments from your wedding?
A: The moments with Beth after the ceremony and family photos were taken. She really helped us slow down and focus on the intimacy between us in the moments after we became husband and wife.
Q: What is your favorite picture from your wedding day?
A: Can I pick more than one?! The first look from my father is priceless. The candid moment when we were walking up the aisle in the recessional (gorgeous black and white) and back down to the ceremony sight for pictures. We also loved the posed picture in front of the fountain.
Q: What’s the biggest piece of advice you can give to other brides that are planning their wedding?
A: Stay organized, work with a great team of people, and effectively communicate your wants/needs with them.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share with brides?
A: If Beth T Photography is on your list of potential photographers for your wedding day/special occasion, make sure she is at the top. The constant communication, professionalism, and overall ease of working with her is unbeatable. Not to mention, the quality of her photos and skill level are tremendous.
