Cassie & Stephen | Getting Ready & Details | Michael and Carina Photography | Williamsburg Winery | Williamsburg, VA

Every single wedding I get to be involved with is a blessing to me. Cassie and Stephen's was no different. I was brought on board about 2.5 months before their big day. Cassie had already built such a beautiful foundation of design details, I just knew it was going to be a memorable experience.

I'm excited to share some of my favorite getting ready and detail shots from Michael and Carina Photography. I hope you enjoy! And in case you missed it, see this gorgeous wedding on Style Me Pretty.

Cassie's invitation suite was DIY. I mean, c'mon! So beautiful!!

Brides, if your photographer will take the extra time to clear a corner of your getting ready space, you will be thrilled with the outcome. There are no distractions in this shot, even though the room was filled with bags, makeup, lunch, and other items belonging to the bridal party.

Detail shots, even ones without the happy couple included, are a wonderful way to help preserve the magic of wedding day. If your photographer is given ample time to grab these shots, your wedding day memories will stay with you for the rest of your life.

More of Cassie and Stephen's ceremony and reception will be up next week!
