So, I’m hoping to start sharing monthly wedding tips, and I’m so excited to kick things off with this one!
It happens all the time (especially our lovely Disney Fairy Tale Weddings): Our couples get ready on their wedding day in two separate locations. Usually, this is separate rooms at the same hotel, but at Disney, it’s often separate rooms at hotels ~30 minutes apart with parking. This can be frustrating when creating the timeline of the wedding day, and a waste of precious photo time when it comes to logistics- Nate dropping me off with the bride, driving to the groom for 15 minutes of photos, then back to the bride’s room or a first look location. See the problem here?
When we photographed Dani and Dan’s wedding last month, I loved that she’d booked connecting rooms for her and Dan. The biggest benefits of this were that instead of sending a bridesmaid on an errand to pick up this or that from Dan, they were able just to go next door, and Nate and I were able to float between the two rooms, ensuring we never missed a moment.
This is now our #1 suggestion for couples getting ready in hotel rooms, and if you need any more convincing to make this happen, just look at this photo Nate snagged while Dani was being laced up- Favorite times a million. :)
