We receive countless submissions from wedding professionals around the world, showcasing their favorite real weddings, engagement sessions, styled inspiration shoots, and more. It’s one of our goals to provide our readers with beautiful, inspirational ideas that will excite them and influence their wedding planning. But sometimes, less is more. Maggie Colletta, the photographer from this beautiful styled session, says this: “This shoot was created to inspire couples to look beyond the expectations and details of a wedding day and simply come to the table as they are, savoring their time with those who love them most.”
We couldn’t agree more. While we hope that the details of your wedding day are beautiful, which you put so much time and effort into planning, we also hope that you’re able to focus on a few things which are truly important to you. Take a less is more approach to planning your wedding, and focus on the moments and the memories.
Read on for more from the photographer, Maggie Colletta:
“A ceremony for only a few and an evening spent in the garden with their loved ones: there is something so familiar and warming about just sharing a table with our closest friends and family. The laughter, joy and memories made are those that often touch us deep in our souls leaving an imprint of those moments for years to come. This shoot was created to inspire couples to look beyond the expectations and details of a wedding day and simply come to the table as they are, savoring their time with those who love them most. Oftentimes we easily fall into this idea that the more we plan and create, the more we add into the picture, the better it will be; but more often than not, I find that less is more on so many occasions, and your wedding day is certainly no exception.”
