Timeline Examples

60 Days before your wedding, I send a detailed questionnaire that allows me to build a customized timeline that will get the wedding day successfully with your package. Things like bridal party and family size, choosing to do a first look or not, and if your wedding is all in one location all make huge adjustments in your timeline. Timelines below are based on an average size family of 15 on each side, and bridal party of 4 & 4, summer timeline (most weddings start at 4:30 in the summer) with weddings in a singular location.
