The First Glance………

Posted on by sharon in All

 It’s a magical moment when your first see your partner on your wedding day!!  Many couples struggle with preserving that moment, but also really need to take photos before the ceremony.

A very savvy wedding planner taught me that it is “the moment” that matters, not when that moment occurs.  You and your partner will anticipate and always cherish that first glance.  It could be even more meaningful if it is a private time for just the two of you or time with your closest family and friends.

The advantages of taking photos before the ceremony are many:

*Everyone is still fresh with hair and make up perfect.
*Younger family members are still excited and not yet over-tired.
*Your guests won’t have to wait to start the celebration while you are taking photos.
*You will have the maximum amount of time to spend having fun at your reception.

The Best!!

Snuffins – I love Snuffins! They catered my daughter’s wedding and it was fabulous! I have been in the hospitality business for 35 years and have worked with many, many caterers… Sharon and her team are just wonderful!! I think I called Snuffin’s on a Saturday during August – I know… what was I thinking? It would be like calling a restaurant at noon or 6pm?! I think they had 5 events or something that day. Of course Sharon answered the phone herself – I think I remember realizing after calling that it was probably an insane day to call and you would have never known. She was simply wonderful to me and I told her what was going on in my life and I really just needed to get an idea of costs and gave her some basic information – she emailed me the next day which was Sunday before I made it back to Eastern Washington. I was impressed! Before the wedding we visited Sharon a couple times to do a tasting and make some selections for some dessert displays. They were always so helpful and accommodating – come wedding day it just continued. Sharon walked through to check on everything, their staff was fabulous and the food…. Maybe the best chicken ever… I was everything we had heard and more. We actually had friends and family call us the next day to let us know they were so impressed with the food. To Sharon, and the rest of the Snuffin’s Team – THANK YOU very much for the wonderful food and service you provided our guests!!
