Diane + Blake | Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic Church

Are you planning on having your wedding ceremony in a Catholic church with a full Mass? Some churches may have a time restrictions that require your ceremony to be earlier than you might find ideal. What then happens to the timing of your reception and dinner? Do you have an early evening? Do you have a super long reception and hope everyone stays to the end? What we suggest is that you schedule a “break” for your guests between your ceremony and reception. This gives them plenty of time to travel to the reception site or maybe make a pit stop by their hotel room or home. We’ve even had a couple host a pre-cocktail hour party at a local restaurant rooftop for family and wedding party. But most importantly, this “break” gives you time in between the ceremony and reception to take all of your photos – a sort of reverse first look – and even find a spot for you to take couples portraits on the way to your reception! Not only will you get more time for photos without the pressure but you can also get to your reception early and take a quick peek at the space before your guests are brought in! Diane and Blake were able to get all of their family photos done and then do some couples portraits at the Winspear on our way to the Adolphus. These always turn out to be some of my favorite photos!
