The Ruprecht-Acquavella Wedding

A note from the bride: Take time for yourself before getting ready for the day. I did yoga and it relaxed me before seeing my husband for the first time. Additionally, take time to be with your partner after the ceremony—it may be the last time you’re alone together! Live in the moment and really try to remember how special this day is to your partner, family and friends--it's not just about you! Also, the bride's mood sets the tone. If you’re having fun and smiling despite a hiccup, everyone else will too. Finally, be very specific with your photographer. So many people end up unhappy with their pictures. Go to the location and have a clear vision of what you want and where. The more direction you provide the more likely you are to be happy with the end result!
