August's Tip, Trick and Trend Report

Tip:  Capture the moment!  You spend so much time planning your wedding and just that like, it’s over in a flash.  All you have are the fond memories that will be cherished forever and hopefully, some amazing photos that will last you a lifetime.  Here is a list of some of the must have photo-ops during your wedding:

Hanging Dress – hang it in front of a window or off of a barn door, either way, the beauty of the dress must be captured.

Sneak Peak – with a little bit of nerves and a lot of excitement, you are sure to snap an amazing portrait of the couple’s first glance at one another.

Grooms Reaction – everyone turns to watch the bride walk down the aisle, but one of the most heartfelt pictures is capturing the groom’s reaction as he watches his future wife walk towards him.

Wedding Rings – What is a wedding without rings?  You spent so much money on them you might as well capture the beauty with a photo.  You can photograph the rings inside a flower, on top of a bible, or while the couple is hand in hand with one another.

First Kiss – this goes without saying... a picture of your first kiss as husband and wife is a must!

Father Daughter Dance – probably one of the most emotional parts of the wedding is when a father celebrates the marriage of his daughter and son-in-law.  This is a moment that is essential to catch on camera.

First Dance – Whether it’s a slow dance or a choreographed hit, forever remember your song with a photo.

The Send-Off – This is the perfect picture to symbolize the beginning of the rest of your life!

Trick:  Here’s a trick that also helps to capture the moment. Think of it as, “The Golden Hours”.  The best light to capture those outdoor wedding shots is two hours before sunset.  The soft glow of the setting sun will be sure to highlight the love between you and your new spouse. Be sure to plan accordingly and check a local sunset chart!

Trend: Some of you may be planning for a late 2013 wedding, while others are already envisioning a 2014 summer of “I Do’s”. Not sure what your color pallete should be? Play it safe with neutral tones of white, ivory and khaki and kick it up a notch with hints of your favorite colors. 

For example, choose white linen, white chairs and soft bistro lighting while adding touches of silver with china, glassware and a diamond napkin ring.  Williams Party Rentals has all your wedding rental needs in a variety of colors!
