The average couple spends 200-300 hours planning their Big Day. That’s 8 to 12 FULL days of planning. That’s right, you are going to spend almost two weeks working on one day, and then it’s going to come. And guess what. It’s not going to be every single moment and detail you planned. Not even close. It’s going to be 100 times better than you ever imagined. It’s going to have laughter, and tears, and breath taking moments that no one could’ve ever imagined. Meet Adriana and Blake. My sweet, amazing, hilarious couple who tied the knot at Dubsdread Historic Manor in 2019! And Queen and King of adorable unpredictable ceremony moments. This couple are the ultimate parents to two amazing dog babies. Ruby (who was a senior baby) and Bella (An adorable pup) were always going to be a massive part of their day. Blake walked with Ruby in his arms, and with Bella by his side. We weren’t even sure Ruby would make it to the big day, so having her there was a blessing alone. Then, as the couple began saying their vows, Ruby got up, and laid down on her Mom’s dress.
We were all so caught up in the moment, that when 10 minutes later, during the ring exchange, we weren’t ready for the sketch comedy of Blake dropping the ring.
It was a quick save, and luckily, they blew off the dirt, and went ahead.
All of these moments were so organic, so unpredictable, that if these two had went into their ceremony stressed, and worried if it was all going to go perfectly, we wouldn’t have gotten any of them. At the end of the day, Remember that all the amazing things you planned will shine through. But the reason you are there are those little moments that you can’t predict. The moments you’ll print and mount on your wall. ALSO: Hire a kick-butt photographer (Hello Jensey and Nate Root!) who aren’t going to miss these tiny, gone-in-a-flash moments.
