A FEW OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SHOOTING WEDDINGS AT Cambridge Mill

Where do you recommend taking our family portraits?

There are many prime locations for family portraits. Either onsite or a stone's throw to Mill Race Park. Family portraits are stress-free with the option to stay on-site, providing great use of coverage time and the perfect backdrop for pictures with your loved ones.

What time should we schedule our ceremony to begin?

Indoor ceremonies should be scheduled no later than 3 hours before sunset. This allows you to take advantage of natural light for your photos and portraits after your vows! We love how Cambridge Mill wedding ceremonies at the Pavilion give the feeling of being outdoors and overlooking the river without the stress of inclement weather.

Do they allow for sparkler exits? Should we do one?

Yes, and Sparkler exits are always beautiful and romantic! Dylan & Sandra Photography encourage all of their couples to plan a fun exit at least once during their day. From earth-friendly biodegradeable confetti, petals, bubbles, or sparklers, planning in this extra touch makes for beautiful photo memories.

How much time should we plan for bride & groom portraits?

Planning at least one hour for bride and groom portraits will allow you both time to decompress, have some fun, and enjoy the many photo opportunities at the Cambridge Mill. Portrait location options include the grounds surrounding the mill, the Juliet balcony, and if you want some extra variety you can quickly head over to Mill Race Park.
