How to Have an Unplugged Wedding

We at Jeannine Marie Photography love the idea of an “unplugged wedding.” What does this mean? At the ceremony, have a wedding sign and have your ushers ask guests to turn off their cell phones and refrain from using their cameras. This way, your guests are completely focused on you and your partner at your ceremony! Another advantage of an unplugged wedding is the result of your wedding photos. Often, guests tend to crowd the aisle with their arms sticking out with their phones and cameras flashing. While this doesn’t necessarily “ruin” the couple’s ceremony photos, it is a bit of an obstacle for the professional wedding photographers. They have to try to steer clear of these guests and in the end, the photos tend to have a lot of electronics that distract the focus from the couple. Consider having an unplugged wedding ceremony for your big day! Trust that your photographers will successfully get all of the amazing photos you want and give your guests the opportunity to truly be present on your big day!

Bridget and Peter’s winter wedding was at Columbia Manor in Minneapolis, MN. For their wedding party, the groom’s mom (who owns NorSari) made blanket wraps and one of the bridesmaids made hats and shawls. The day of their February wedding was an unusual Minnesota winter day. There was no snow and it was 60 degrees out! I love how their day was arranged around spending time with family and friends! It was obvious they keep many people close to them. I am thrilled to get to reunite with their family in July for Peter’s sister’s wedding!

For brides looking for a rustic barn wedding venue, check out Mayowood Stone Barn! One of our favorite features of this barn is the bridal suite, also known as the Bridle Room Barn! This cozy room has plenty of room for the bride, bridesmaids, moms, flower girls, and attendants to get ready. This area has a small kitchenette, a dining table, a seating area around a fireplace, and an open space for the bride to change. A few of my favorite features include the window that just soaks in the gorgeous sunlight. There is also a wall of racks to hang the bride’s dress and bridesmaids dresses on.
