Final considerations: When picking a restaurant for your wedding venue

When picking the perfect venue for your small wedding celebration, take into consideration the lighting. Chances are, off-camera flash will be required for capturing speeches, tears, and hand squeezes(!). This will give you a classic moody vibe. You will also want to consider that backdrop where you are seated! Check-in with your restaurant venue to see if you can add-in greenery (like a decorative frame behind you) for your background, and plenty of candles to your table for that extra ambience. It will go a long way! You’ll also want privacy and limited noise so ask about how to best achieve that! Finally, think in advance about pre-and post-wedding reception photos; these can be captured outside of your venue. As photographers, we are experts at quickly finding the right backgrounds and lighting for your photos, so when you work with us, we’ll have that covered!
