    my photog suggested meeting up before the ceremony to take photos... however my ceremony begins at 12noon and i would really like to not to see the groom til then. we have the chapel for 90 mins so we gotta be outta there by 130, and then i wanted to take photos somewhere nice around the island until the reception dinner at 5:30.
    those who have done something like this, how did it work out for you? do u wish u got them all done before the ceremony?

      We have a 4:00 wedding in the Chapel and we are absolutely not seeing the groom before that. That moment when the chapel doors open and he sees you for the first time in your gown should never be traded for the convenience of photographs. It is a moment that takes his breath away and you will never forget the look on his face. You have plenty of time after your ceremony and before the reception and I would use that time. Our reception will be one hour after the ceremony ends and I think that is more than enough time for the photographer to get some couple shots and some with the bridal party on the beach, etc. We have 30 min after the ceremony to get some in the chapel too. How many couple pics are you really going to print anyway? Good luck!

        I agree, whatever you are comfortable with, just ask your photographer, they should be MORE than willing to accomodate you! Also, you can always designate a family member or someone from the bridal party to show the photographer around after the getting ready part is done if that's something you're doing, and get them set up to take pics while the ceremony is happening. That way you can get those cool getting ready pictures, without having your FI see you in your dress! It will all work out fine!

          You will have more than enough time to do photos after. I had my wedding at 3pm and had a cocktail hour while we did all of our photos. It was more then enough time. I had photos from getting ready all the way through to my reception. It's definitely do able...good luck

            I see your wedding already passed, but I'll post for others who come across this. We saw each other for about 30 minutes before. It was wonderful. He stood on top of a staircase & I walked up to him & gave him a big hug. I liked having that moment semi-private. It also helped me get the nerves out.

            Seeing each other before isn't just for convenience, but also it can be a really special moment on the wedding day. It's really a personal preference. You can see my before pics at "My Wedding Album" link.
