Since we discussed the bride and groom’s first kiss as husband and wife in the last post, it is only fitting to discuss what happens right after the “I do’s”: the wedding ceremony recessional. That is the moment bride and groom walking down the aisle as husband and wife as they exit the ceremony. It is their first presentation as husband and wife and it is most definitely a moment that must be captured, so that it may live on forever through photographs.
The wedding ceremony recessional is the classic moment where guests celebrate the the new union by throwing things or waiving things in the air. However, there are many ways for the bride and groom to do the wedding ceremony recessional. Guests may throw rose petals and beach balls or waive streamers and ring bells. The possibilities are endless and change with wedding motif. Regardless of how the wedding ceremony recessional is done, that send off to the wedding reception is a moment that is filled with happiness and excitement. It is a rare moment of the day that involves the bride and groom with all of their guests. It is a moment of delight for both the new couple and the onlooking guests. Sadly, is short lived and therefore the wedding photographer and/or guests must be quick to capture it on camera.
