A perfectly executed timeline means we have time to go galavanting on a wedding day. Do I ever love when couples are on top of it for their timelines. Not only do they hire pro's like Lauren VanderHorst - Hair by Lauren to help out with keeping the girls on time and the Bride, Inez is also a hair dresser so they kept right on top of time of time together. Inez did all of the bridesmaid hair including her mothers, and Lauren came and helped for Inez to look glamourous with the bride's inspiration (Isn't her hair incredible?). Hair and Make up can make or break your wedding day and so can driving traffic. Plan ahead, give yourself extra time.
I cannot stress the above enough. The only people that miss out when the day is rushed is the Bride and Groom and the rest of it is a ball of 'go go go' and 'don't keep the guests waiting'. Plan to add buffer time throughout your day, make sure transportation is figured out before hand. The more assertive you are with planning details before your day, the more relaxed your wedding day will be.
Inez & Dale are a perfect example of a well planned wedding day. Not only were they early the entire day, we made a few pit stops along the way. Dale's brother and sister-in-law had a baby the night before the wedding so off to Abbotsford Hospital we went to see the little newborn - how precious that moment was. And after a stop at the hospital we headed on over to Mission Springs Pub, as Inez and Dale really wanted to do some unique photos. Bring shout out to the management at Mission Springs Pub for allowing us to photograph in their establishment. Then after a few bites and a bevy we headed off to their backyard reception at Dale's Parent's property in the valley.
Details are meticulously planned by Inez and Dale and family and friends helped pull it all together. I'm so very thrilled to share their wedding day photographs and even more pleased to share the unique photos we captured at the pub. I love photographing at off the wall locations. If your getting married - I highly suggest of thinking of locations you love to personalize the day or keep all your photographs on property of your venue.
Also, the bride is a very talented hair stylist at Inez Hair Design.
