3 Things to Consider with WIND for your Outdoor Ceremony

You’ve been dreaming of the perfect outdoor ceremony since who knows when, and you’ve found the perfect venue to make those dreams come true. While you’ve probably pondered the possibility of rain on your big day, have you thought about the other ways Mother Nature might throw a wrench in the plan? Today I’m giving you three tips to help you deal with the often-overlooked but equally-as-problematic element — wind.

Updo to the Rescue!

Picture this: the wind suddenly blowing your hair into your face just as you’re about to say your vows. Not ideal, right? A partial or full updo can make sure your hair doesn’t become a bird’s nest, or ruin any picture perfect moments. Securing your luscious locks will help keep things from getting too windblown. And for those of you who have always dreamt of wearing their hair down in a gleaming waterfall, you could consider a transitional style or keep your hairdresser on call to help put your hair down for the party! 

Secure Those Decorations!

If you’ve got standing or not-so-secure decorations at your ceremony site, make sure they’re tied down or weighted. The last thing you want is for your carefully chosen decor to take flight during your vows. A little extra precaution means your ceremony stays picturesque and drama free! 

Veil on Lock!

Don’t let your veil become the star of a windy spectacle. Secure it tightly to your scalp to avoid any Katy Perry “plastic bag” moments. Bonus tip: Position yourself on the side where the wind is blowing into you, so your veil gracefully flies back, instead of into your body. Wind blown veil photo? Yes, please! 

I hope you found these tips for a windy wedding day, helpful! And while wind may become enemy number one, it doesn’t have to stop you from having the day you’ve dreamed about!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
