How to Use a Break Between Your Ceremony and Reception

Have a gap between your ceremony and reception? It’s not uncommon, especially when having your ceremony at your church. One of our favorite ways to fill that time is by taking you to an extra location for some portraits of just the two of you in all your wedding finest (or we can invite the wedding party to tag along for some more fun, candid images). 

Sometimes this means having a first look some place other than your church or reception venue. Other times, like in Merrissa and Matt’s case, it can mean heading to a beautiful outdoor location for portraits between the ceremony and the reception.

The Kimbell Art Museum is one of those evergreen locations, perfect for portraits year round, which made it ideal for this January wedding day. This was also a great chance to showcase Merrissa’s heirloom fur, which was handed down to her. How chic and timeless, right?

I love that this allowed Merrissa and Matt to spend extra time together, just the two of them, before heading to their party to celebrate with their favorite people.
