Wedding Party PAAAAAR-TAY!!!

Family is often fabulous, loving and helpful when planning your wedding. Still, when it comes to setting the tone of your Big Day, your wedding party matters! If you want a wild and crazy dance party, avoid inviting only your shy friends to be maids. If you want “class”, having your scantily clad cousin as your maid of honor, while exciting, might alter the desired effect. Is it a family affair? Including all 12 nieces and nephews is an endearing way to be all inclusive, and adds just the right amount of chaos to inspire any photographer.
From THIS photographer’s perspective, the more the merrier in your wedding party. Having said this, I only had my best friend of thirty years stand up with me. But I’m not talking about MY OWN personal preference for intimate, cozy family and closest friend gatherings. I’m talking about what makes for entertaining, energetic moment photographs. Those lovely intimate, cozy shots are for another post…
Several photos below were featured in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine, and Seattle Bride Magazine.
