Getting Ready –
A wedding day is such a momentous occasion for all the people involved, but especially for a bride. It’s the culmination of so much planning and investigating to find the perfect elements that will piece together to give her the special day she is hoping to create and enjoy. One of the main show pieces is always the gown. Have you ever watched “Say Yes to the Dress?” The wedding gown is the focal point for any bride. It says so many things about the bride as an individual, the designer she has chosen to wear, and what most attendees will long remember. It conveys a sense of self-awareness, and speaks volumes of the bride without uttering a word. Other accessories such as hair, make-up, and jewlery compliment the bride as well and completes the picture perfect representation she is about.
While the bride traditionally captures the attention at any wedding, the groom no less is still part of the show! He has the opportunity as well as the bride to make selections to show off his personality and sense of style to compliment his lovely bride. Men’s choices of ensembles are as varied as a bride’s choice of gown, so a groom needs to do his best to coordinate his look that combines his taste, his personality, and become the puzzle piece that fits nicely into the overall presentation of the loving couple on their special day.
Friends & Family at the VUE on 50 Wedding-
There is nothing more important for any couple then sharing their special day with the friends and family who they are close to and who have helped them to get to this point in their journey together. It can be quite a difficult task in balancing these two factions as there are many considerations to make when planning who will be attending. Aspects such as the level relationship and closeness they have with each individual, the distance those individuals must travel to participate, and their availability. And a tougher part of reality of course comes in to play is the cost of having so many treasured individuals as part of the celebration. The biggest challenge is trying to include all those you love without also offending anyone. All of this eventually falls into place as final decisions are made, but it certainly is a major consideration as plans are being hammered out!

This is the culmination of so much planning, and can certainly test the patience and relationship of any couple. There are so many aspects to consider during this process. What are we wearing? What music should be played at the ceremony? What music should be played at the reception? What food should we serve during the cocktail hour? What food should we serve for the dinner? What flowers should we have? What photographer should we use? The list goes on and on and on and on! There are so many pieces of the puzzle to put together in order to create the most memorable event that is both satisfying to the couple as well as to the treasured friends and family that are in attendance. As you will see with the photos that were capture by J&J Studios, it looks like Rebecca and Don made their decisions wisely.
