How to Have a Stress Free Wedding


Every time I go to a wedding, or photograph a wedding, I can’t help but compare it to my own wedding day. Because honestly, we had the most fun wedding, ever.

(Yep, we posed with bikers outside the biker bar)

I wasn’t stressed. I was calm and so excited about getting married! And since I had passed the reigns of “command” to our coordinator, I didn’t have to worry about a thing, and neither did my mom, aunt, or sister. It was wonderful.

It probably seems unlikely. Or perhaps impossible. But based on my own experience with our wedding, I can tell you it is possible.

Stress Free Weddings can happen (as stress free as possible, of course!). I’m sharing a few tips on how to make it happen.

    Thanks girl! I also have this tendency to run ahead of schedule when shooting a wedding. 😉 I’ll attribute that to my calm demeanor! 😉
