What happens when you strip back the layers of a wedding?
What matters the most to you?
I dare to suggest that many ‘brides and grooms to be’ have a really hard time considering this while making their wedding plans. I must admit, in the midst of planning my own wedding I have become a victim to pinterest, wedding blogs, social media and expected norms.
It’s ok. That’s normal.
To me, what’s most important is to not let this consume you. Each couple has to do what feels right to them. Invariably, what feels right varies (and should) from couple to couple.
Sometimes what feels right is meeting during an epic trip to Egypt.
Sometimes what feels right is planning the ultimate intimate wedding surrounded by only family.
Sometimes what feels right is taking a couple of hours with your photographer to explore a city that you love on your wedding day.
And sometimes, what feels right is ending that night surrounded by those very people that love you and sharing a meal to celebrate your union.
Your union as a married couple. Dedicated to one another. How appropriate to keep that sacred and to share that with only the people closest to you.
I dig it.
