Photography: A wedding is one of the most significant events in a person’s life. There is no better way to remember the special moments of your day than through photography! People will come and go, time will fly fast, but the memories of your happy moments as depicted in your wedding pictures will be yours to see forever. Your photographs will be the main thing you really have to remember your special day once the wedding is over (aside from each other). You will want to be able to always look back and look at your pictures and experience the joy of your day all over again. Your Milton Ridge photographer is an experienced professional photographer that specializes in capturing Milton Ridge weddings. They will be focused on you through the entire day. Recording the events, they are always there…around…watching…capturing. Not in your face, but in the background capturing the moments as they unfold. Experience tells your photographer when to expect things to happen, when to nudge them along and when to stay out of the way. They might take photos of your flowers, your rings, your decorations, but they will always be on top of what is happening and where right up until the last good byes. Take a look at our media section and all around this site. All of the photography here was captured by a Milton Ridge Photographer. Click here to learn more about Milton Ridge Photography.
Ministers: Warm, charming and personable. Whether you choose to have a traditional or religious ceremony, our ministers will work closely with our brides and grooms to orchestrate the perfect ceremony to reflect the love and commitment you both share.
DJ: Your décor may set the theme of your wedding reception, but it’s the DJ that sets the mood. The music that’s played can really make or break the celebration, so you want to a professional. From the moment the first guest takes her seat until the last person leaves the dance floor, music fills the day. Your Milton Ridge DJ is not only there to keep the party going but to also keep it scheduled smoothly. They will be directing you and your guests through all of the receptions special events. From the first dance to the last, you will not have to worry about when and where to be. All you will have to do is simply enjoy your guests and the moments that unfold. Your Milton Ridge DJ is set up with state of the art equipment and synced with crisp, room-filling, built-in surround sound and lighting systems. Whether your ideal reception is a quiet and calm setting perfect for small conversation or a rocking party, your DJ will work with you to create the perfect music list for your event.
Make-up & Hair: Bridal hair and make-up is surprisingly one of the most overlooked factors in planning a wedding day, and you deserve to look your best! Wedding hair and make-up is a unique art and specialty. Your make-up artist needs to be knowledgeable in how make up is captured on camera, not just in person. It is important for you to look absolutely stunning in your special style. Your make-up and hair should complement all of the other pieces you have pulled together for your wedding day attire. Choosing your Milton Ridge stylist will allow you the opportunity to arrive at Milton Ridge before your scheduled rental time begins. Giving brides an opportunity to arrive, relax by the pool, and leisurely get ready for their wedding! Arriving early will depend on availability.
