Caesar Chavez once said that going to someone’s house and eating with them resulted in friendship. And this certainly applies to dinner at your wedding. One of the most beautiful, romantic, and memorable parts of your wedding – for you as well as your guests – is sharing a meal with a room full of people you love.
You’ll cherish your wedding photos for many years. And because the dinner party aspect of it is particularly meaningful, you’ll be glad you chose your catering service and local photographer carefully.
Think about the last time someone sent you photos from brunch, dinner out, or a BBQ. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the candid moments in those shots that make us happy like few other things can.
Now just imagine that feeling times a million. That’s what it will be like when you look at your wedding pictures. We’re living in the age of Instagram and Snapchat, where pictures are telling our stories more than ever before.
And even though many of those images are fleeting – where our wedding pictures aren’t – they’ve captured the romance and intimacy in dining. And even more so, the love manifest in those dining together.
The day will be hectic (wonderful, but hectic). And as much as we swear we’ll try to remember everything, it’s overwhelming, and it goes by in an instant. The dinner pictures will be an irreplaceable gift of those hours and the meal you shared with those you love.
It’s hard to think of an equivalent when thinking about the memories immortalized in wedding dinner pictures. The photos of our parents’ champagne toast. The pictures of our friends gathered around a beautifully set, candle-lit table, raising a glass to the bride and groom.
The perfect capture of the newly married couple cutting their cake. And these are the memories that stick. The pictures we not only share, but frame.
It goes without saying that you have a lot on your (ahem) plate when planning a wedding. There are venues to visit, lodgings to book, wedding photography portfolios to review, catering options to sample, guest lists to make, flowers to order, and the list goes on.
And when you’re exhausted from all of it, and feel like you might just want to scream if you have to make one more decision, remember this will be your one day.
You will pour everything you have into these decisions, and it’s exhausting. The vows, toasts, meal – all the things that you will give as well as receive on that day will be captured by not only your marriage, but that of the photography studio and catering service you pick.
Together, they will make it an indelible work of art you will never forget.
