I've been photographing weddings for over 40 years. The trend now days is couples are older before getting married,,, in their late 20 or early 30s.
They are employed and usually living on their own. They are also having much smaller weddings and paying for everything themselves.
Most weddings these days are small and are held at sunset, outdoors on the beach.
$295 includes Minister, Photographer, Flower Leis, and "Hug Me" gift.
Total time less than 45 minutes.
Instead of huge weddings with a $299 wedding cake. $1000 in flowers,
$1500 photo package. $350 location rental. wedding gown, bridesmaid gowns, reception, food caterer..... and on $$,and on $$,and on $$$....
Find a Judge or JP, Invite the family, and make it legal.
Then go to a nice restaurant.
Couples these days are saving the money they would normally spend on the wedding and investing in a vacation or buying a home. This image is hidden for guests. Please login or register to see it.
