A Wedding Schedule to go by

Timing! You picked out your venue, fell in love with a dress, and hired most of your vendors, but how do we get everything done in one day? It’s hard to know when on your Wedding day things are going to be happening and how long everything is going to take. Luckily I’ve experienced a couple of weddings in my day and can lend you a helping hand. Here is a wedding day schedule from a Tampa Wedding Photographer that just makes sense

This guide goes by a 5:00 ceremony time. Feel free to adjust all timing depending on your ceremony time…

TAMPA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS NOTE: We do tend to sneak out one last time around 7 pm for golden hour sunset bride and groom pictures depending on our couple and how they’d like to spend their day!

11:30 Arrival Photographers arrive to start photographing your wedding day!

12:00 Getting Ready and Details Start by photographing your details and some getting ready moments

Also, a great time for the Bridesmaids to start getting dressed
