Weddings are a wonderful but hectic time, and couples should always slow down and take the time to honor and cherish the family and friends closest to them that have impacted their love and relationship. Incorporating special items in to your big day to remind you of these loved ones is a great way to show your admiration to them! During one of the most important days of your life, it is important to honor the memory of deceased loved ones. One way to do this is by leaving an empty seat during the ceremony with a photo of them or a sentimental item. Another great way to express your love for family and friends is through pictures. Personally, I love having wedding photos from previous generations including your parents and grandparents – it is such a thoughtful gesture and they’ll be so touched that you included them!
Let’s not forget how important engagement photos are- they are the story of your relationship for that second aunt of your fiance that you never even knew about! But they also serve to pump up all of your close friends and family for you big day! For these college sweethearts, they knew the perfect place to take engagement photos was where they met & fell in love. Indiana University is a gorgeous backdrop for this couple- especially those tulips!
