Wedding Photographers and Officiants --- Now Play Nice!

Wedding Photographers and Officiants are a staple of any wedding celebration – the civil officer who performs acts of marriage, civil union or commitment, and the creative mind that captures all the close and intimate moments. As you are envisioning your wedding day, would you ever imagine that there would be problem that arises between your Wedding Photographer and the Officiant?  Us neither…so we were so surprised when we caught this clip while watching our favorite morning show –

As you watch it, you can’t help to feel sorry for the bride and groom…it was very uncomfortable and awkward. So can you imagine being there? Obviously, there was a lack of communication before the Ceremony on what was going to take place and when. You never want to have this type of alter-cation to happen, especially dab in the middle of your very special day. That’s why it is so important to ensure that all parties that are partaking in your wedding are kept adequately briefed.

Without clear instructions, you could end up like this bride and groom…shocked! It’s always good to review with your Minister the plan for the day – the wedding format. This is best done at the Wedding Rehearsal. We noticed that this is an outdoor lake or garden wedding. These types of events, which we specialize in, tend to be more relaxed. Make sure you Minister is OK with that. Sometimes marrying outside of a church can be a sore spot as is…just make sure your Officiant is relaxed as well and is accepting.

A little bit of planning and communication between the minister, photographers and couple might have helped avoid this whole mess – don’t leave out any details when you are preparing for your special day, because there are no take-twos!

The Perfect Beach Wedding Dress

Trying to find the perfect Beach Wedding Dress? We’ve gathered some information to assist you in finding that perfect dress for a beach wedding on our beautiful shores of the Florida coastline.

This has been an amazing couple of weeks for Better Together Weddings as we hosted a gorgeous Florida gay wedding in Orlando under the palm trees at Lake Eola in celebration of the Supreme Court rulings regarding Marriage Equality. The rally was inspiring, and the ceremony was just beautiful.

But with all the things that we love about a male gay wedding, the one thing that was missing that you get with having a bride is the reaction you have to the wedding dress. The moment a bride comes into view, and the groom and all the guests see the beauty in white…it makes a Florida beach wedding so special.  Maybe it’s the delicate fabric as it glistens in the sun, so near the crashing of the waves, or as it trails across the edge of the sand…there is just something magical about it.


Rain on your Wedding Day

There’s rain on your wedding day… my day is ruined!  Absolutely not!

It really is like they say…for better or for worse. Along with the gorgeous sunny weather that we experience in the Central Florida region that works so well with our ceremonies comes with it the tropical climate patterns, which can sometimes mean, yes, rain on your wedding day.  But rain doesn’t have to ruin what will be the most special day of your life.  Your Florida beach wedding can still go off without a hitch…and here’s how.
