Wedding Day Timeline - Sample Day Of Wedding Timeline

Wedding Day Timeline

When creating a wedding day timeline, you'll need to consult with several of your wedding vendors.  Clearly communicate your expectations and use their suggestions to compile your final list.  Your hair and makeup artists will help you determine how much time is realistically necessary, the DJ will be a great resource for the reception timeline and the day of coordinator will be a great tool for helping the day go smoothly! From the photography standpoint, here's a sample Wedding Day Timeline that you can use as a starting point. Once you get this finalized, communicate with your bridal party, immediate family and vendors about what time they should arrive.  When in doubt, add an extra 15 minutes to cushion the timeline!  Extra time is better than running behind!  Sample Timeline has been created for a 5:00pm Ceremony Time, with everything taking place at one venue.

Marry Me, Triad Weddings Magazine Bridal Show

Yasmin Leonard Photography and Just Priceless 

I participated in my very first bridal show this past weekend!  Marry Me, presented by Triad Weddings, is the area's premier planning event!  I was honored to be among the top wedding professionals the Triad and surrounding area has to offer. There were so many talented, innovative and passionate business owners ready to service potential brides and grooms.  It was definitely a great day!  

As you may know, I share a building with Just Priceless and Printology!  Because of this, Just Priceless and I had the opportunity to share a booth at Marry Me!  This turned out to have many advantages!  1.  I photographed a gorgeous wedding at The Lofts at Union Square on Saturday and was unable to set up our booth.  Luckily, Sami and her talented team were willing and available to set everything up for us!! Huge bonus for me!  ...and did you see what they did!?  Well, you will in just a sec!  They did such a great job making everything come together! 2.  Flowers make everything beautiful!  Just Priceless flowers beautifully complimented the wedding portraits and really made everything pop! 3.  It was fun having such a great friend by my side the whole event! Definitely some fun girl time!

The event itself was awesome!  I had the opportunity to meet with so many brides (and some grooms)!  I absolutely love getting to be a part of all the excitement!  I loved getting to meet so many new people, hear about their wedding plans and answer questions about all things weddings!   And as a sweet treat, I handed out my favorite chocolate, Ghiradelli Cholocalate with Caramel!

Our antique chair came from the Prettiest Pieces in Greensboro, as well as the china and stemware!  Our gorgeous table linen came from Party Reflections! 

Corporate Headshots - In Studio Headshots

Corporate Headshots

If you're in the majority, it's likely you have never had any professional headshots taken. It's probably not even on your radar of things to do!  In many cases, most didn't even consider it until their boss asked for it and they realized they didn't have any!  I want to suggest to you, don't wait!  Your picture on your website, Linked In page, business card, marketing materials, etc is often the first impression people have of you.  That picture represents you, your business and your brand.  A professional picture will help make you look more professional.  Including pictures on your marketing materials also helps give your business a personal touch!  Sessions are relaxed, quick and easy!  Schedule your Corporate Headshots today!
