Keep in mind every wedding is different and you may have more or less events happening. Depending on the size of your wedding and bridal party, you may need more time, or less time than what is listed above.

This does not cover travel time if there are multiple locations so make sure you factor that in as well.

On average couples book 8 hour packages and we can capture everything from getting ready through the ceremony, and all of the formal activities during the reception.

If you're unsure about anything we got your back and are more than happy to help with planning the timeline.

Each wedding is unique and we will put together a custom plan for your special day!

Happy Planning!
