Brides, You'll Never Walk Down The Aisle The Same Way Again

Brides, You'll Never Walk Down The Aisle The Same Way Again Orlando Wedding Photographer | Unashamed Imaging | Orlando Wedding Videographer (Cinematographer)

The normal tradition for most wedding ceremonies (after the ring-bearer walks down the aisle) is for the Master of Ceremony or Officiant to say something along the lines of "Ladies and Gentlemen, please rise as the Bride makes her way down the aisle", but at this wedding it went a little bit different. One of the biggest details on a wedding day beside the cake, color-scheme of the wedding, and florals is the Bride in her bridal gown. Why, because it's always been the center of attention whenever you hear about weddings. Brides spend months and several hours finding the dress that's the right fit for them. They stand in front of a body length mirror imagining their wedding day as they walk down the aisle. She may not have her jewelry picked out just yet or even her bridal heels, but one thing that crosses the mind of every Bride is walking down the aisle in her stunning gown. I've captured many weddings as a wedding photographer and cinematographer, but this wedding took a different approach for the Bride walking down the aisle.

Benefits of Staying Seated Until The Bride Passes You

True Story: As I adjusted my shoulders and got ready for the epic entry of the beautiful Bride, the M.O.C. says, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain seated until the Bride passes your seat." I was shocked. I've never heard of this before, but I kind of liked it. Okay - I'm being modest, I really liked it. I thought this was epic and in that very moment I said that I would share this with couple's moving forward. I also thought to myself - how could nobody have taken this approach before. Think this isn't important or not practical? Let's imagine that (with everything I've already outlined above), you (as a guest) couldn't see the Bride walking down the aisle. What if the Bride is your cousin, maybe your bestfriend, or your sister. Maybe you're a family member that traveled miles away from home to witness the celebration, and now you can't see anything because people are standing in front of you. All you see is heads and shoulders. I'm sure you'd politely ask a fellow guest to scoot over or lean to the left or right, but now they are blocking someone else's view. So now the question is, what do you do? No worries. I'm here to share a workable and practical strategy that Brides can now implement for their epic bridal walk down the aisle.

So here I am with this huge smile on my face, excited to see the Bride come out and ready to shoot with camera in hand. I look around and what do I see, everyone is smiling. They are so eager to see the Bride. The Wedding party was also in jubilee. They were
