Stephanie & Ryan – {Indiana Wedding Photography}

This wedding was by far, one of my favorite weddings I’ve had the pleasure to photograph ever in my career. The details were so beautiful and creative, and completely DIY from Stephanie and her bridesmaids…. the venue was fresh and amazing. The couple was adorable. We had plenty of time for photos. The bride and groom were not only beautiful, but were also so much fun and completely kind and thoughtful to us. We had an amazing time and I have been so so excited to blog this wedding. Stephanie and Ryan… enjoy your previews… you had a beautiful day. Congratulations again!

This beach wedding was amazing because of the ocean in the background and the beautiful sunset, we had great outdoor wedding photography done. I also thought that the dress was very pretty and it was so soft. I had an amazing time! I have only used their service once and I already know I will be returning in the near future. This is definitely an “instant” getaway. I highly recommend this place for anyone who enjoys going to a secluded beach and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Just as a general thought:

A beach wedding is typically a time for the bridesmaids to make an appearance, but the groom-to-be might want to wait until after his big day, when the whole bridal party will be at the beach, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. This is because bridesmaids don’t want to be late because they want to spend time with the groom, not because they are being paid. It’s much more respectful to give a bridesmaid’s time off to the groom and his family.

What to do in case of an emergency

If you find yourself stuck in a situation where there is no time for the bride and the groom to be at the beach, but you don’t want to give up on the wedding, here are some things you can do:

Call the wedding coordinator to ask how to get back on time.

Ask someone who works for the wedding vendor or the officiant about the weather conditions.

You know they are an AWESOME couple when they end their reception like this 😉
