I've worked with couples who've kept things easy going and simple, achieved elegant and traditional decadence, or have had full-blown raging parties and everything in between.

Have a picnic with your crew for totally chill wedding party photos

Natalie and Mark's photographer suggested that they indulge in a small picnic after the ceremony and before their reception — and it looks like such a BRILLIANT idea that I'm sharing it here for you to steal. Check it out. Pack a lil cooler with some snacks — you know you and your peeps are gonna be hungry by then — and grab an adorable blanket or two and a festive basket. Then lounge around for some post-ceremony wedding party photos that showcase you and your closest people being super stylish and super relaxed. What a great way to unwind a bit before hitting up a high-energy ceremony, am I right?
