Tips, TRicks and Truths For

creating you wedding day timeline

"

This is very popular quote and is one of my favorites from Stephen Covey, author of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. This could apply to pretty much every part of our lives and it definitely applies to creating your wedding day timeline.

As we think about each part of the day, remember what is most important to you. Don't get caught in the logistics or stuck in the weeds. We wan't to focus on the main thing right now.

Planning your wedding day timeline can be overwhelming, with numerous considerations such as sunset time, the distance between locations, and the size of your wedding party.

With over a decade of experience documenting weddings of all types, I've crafted this guide to help you navigate this process.

My goal is to share my knowledge and collaborate with you to create a timeline that ensures a relaxing and carefree wedding day.

Put yourself 5, 10, or 25 years into the future. What images are you envisioning as you flip through the pages of your wedding album? What images are still hanging up the walls of your home?

Let's remember what parts of the day, what moments, what people, are most important as we begin to create your wedding timeline.
