Not that anyone asked us, but Bob and I are more than willing to dole out a little wedding day advice to our couples. Actually, a lot of our couples end up using us for info on vendors and planning and other such things. We are always happy to do it. After all, we have been to a few weddings and seen the ups and downs.
But if there was one thing we could stress to everyone is that the day goes by faster than you can imagine, so make sure you are doing the things you want to do and not what everyone thinks you should do. Lisa and Chuck got this right! Did they ever.
Now Lisa and Chuck were a little unusual in that they built in a lot of time between the ceremony and the reception. We always encourage this because it leaves a lot of time for photos but hey we are photographers, of course, we are going to recommend that! But this time wasn’t necessarily all about photos, it was about them enjoying things they love with their friends.
So after a really nice ceremony in Pittston, we headed north to Laceyville for a little barbecue. I will say that was a first! But it was cool. It was a western joint with really good barbecue and most importantly it was a place that had some meaning to Lisa and Chuck. We loved going there and got some cool photos. From there, we went to a cabin down the road that they like to spend time at. Again, a really cool spot but not something you get on every wedding day.
But that wasn’t the only stop. We hit a bar on the way out of Laceyville. Let’s just say this isn’t the type of place where you order a brandy at the mahogany bar. Let’s also say, it was exactly my kind of place! Hahahaha. So our group sidled up to the bar and had a few drinks and some laughs before heading to the reception. It wasn’t the traditional time between wedding and ceremony and I think that’s what made it so special. Lisa and Chuck knew what was important to them and they built it into their wedding day. We think that’s exactly the way to do it. The day goes by too fast.
Here are some pics from their day. Enjoy.
