Have a picnic with your crew for totally chill wedding party photos #Reception Advice#photography#picnic wedding#steal-this-idea#wedding day schedule Updated Jul 11 2019 (Posted Feb 17 2016) Chris Wolfgang Photos from Natalie & Mark's stress-free wedding in the Australian heat by Kim Cartmell 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 reception, am I right? Chris Wolfgang Chris is a writer and editor in Omaha, Neb.
