#4 – All Things Bridal – Romantic Gestures

by z.lynn

i just got in from a wedding where i was the second shooter for the amazing Atlanta photographer, Zac Long of FengLong Photography. thank you again Zac for giving me the opportunity to shoot along with you. i had a great time, learned a lot and have some great experience under my belt.

during the pre-wedding candid shots, the bride received a special delivery of a long, brown box with a white ribbon around it. she opened the box to find a beautiful diamond bracelet and a note from her soon-to-be husband. his note simply declared how much he loved her and then he reminded her of the 3 words that he used to describe her the day they met. [these words have been kept secret to protect the loved! :-)] of course, there were a lot of ooh’s and awwww’s in the room among the bridal party, and rightfully so. how romantic of a gesture that was!

the marriage ceremony, with its’ traditions and practices, is all about the declaration of one’s love for their fiancee. why not make a special and memorable declaration at your wedding.

you could:

  • write your own vows or prepare list of “10 things i love about you” and read it to each other during the reception
  • send a short note/video to your fiancee, to be read before the ceremony (the night before or the day of, it’s your choice); you could even make a series of notes leading up to the big day
  • read a love poem to your spouse during the ceremony/reception
  • if you’re so inclined, write a song or poem about your fiancee and perform or recite it for them on your wedding day

these are a few simple things that come to my mind. try one or two, or come up with your own.

i’d love to hear your ideas.

please share them with me in the comments section.

see ya tomorrow,

z
