Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?As Lauren is a Broadway actress she wanted their wedding to be a party no one would ever forget, a 4 day non stop performance. And what a show;
Beginning with the welcome cocktail on which Lauren surprised Lee with a song in which she shared the story of their love with the guests. To the ceremony, with a pop up performance by their friends, fellow broadway stars, while Lauren was walking to the isle, leading to the party where family, friends, all together sang the night away, accompanied by the band that played at Billy Joel's and Sir Paul McCartney's weddings: the talented "Soul Street" featuring Reggie Woods, flown in for the occasion.
All smoothly organized by wedding planner Kimberley Richmond who understood and managed to translate the brides desire for an organic, Green ambience, masterly refelcted in the floral creaction of florist Saku.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?Make sure your Wedding Day is not transformed in a non-stop photo shoot.

Make sure the package covers the particularities of YOUR event, bearing in mind the hour of sunset, the fact that you want to see your fiancÃ© before the ceremony or not cfr. The bridal session, you want more coverage of the party or mostely during the day, etc.
