Putting a personal twist on your favorite social media wedding ideas is easy with help from pros. Read the recap of our #YourDreamWedding expert advice session from Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza January 2021.
You've seen your friends' or favorite celebrity weddings all over social. How do you create shareable, spectacular wedding moments? We asked the experts.
How do you translate what you see on social to your wedding concept?
The first thing I ask clients to do is pick just one photo from your boards or bookmarks that most speaks to you or is the clearest image of what you want your wedding to look like. That is your one point of inspiration and everything else you select to accompany it has to connect to that one. It helps you build a cohesive vision. - Wedded Bliss
How do you create post-worthy shots and replicate images you love from social media?
Couples bring in images all the time. We ask them what draws them to those images so we have a list of what they want to see. We don’t try to create an exact replica, but we use it as inspiration. We use shadow, reflections, and different camera positions to get images that really stand out. - Viridian Images
How does your venue help shape a guest experience that is post-worthy?
What feeling do you want guests to come away with? At a brewery or winery, guests will get to taste or create their own experience. If you want a wild dance party, you need to make sure there’s plenty of room for the band, a stage and dance floor. Gardens can have a magical feel that offer many photo opportunities. The important thing is to create an environment that gets guests involved. - Spirited Event Group
How can one venue look completely different or create unique environments for different weddings?
You can select the same venue as someone else and have your wedding look completely different. We can paint the picture for each unique couple’s vision. From a Japanese garden to an English garden wedding to indoor/outdoor spaces. There are many different options. Couples love the Skyline Garden and Japanese Garden for photography. There are many architectural elements beyond flowers and greenery, too. - Atlanta Botanical Garden
How do you create shareable party images?
It needs to be unique. We have a glam filter that makes everyone look gorgeous in black and white. Images are still popular but video is king now. Our 360 degree video experience provides slo-mo effects, music, and a dynamic images. You can also get on-site printing plus a video experience for the best of both worlds. - ShutterBooth
How do you create shareable, memorable party moments? How do you create a celebration that’s unique to the couple?
We have many options to customize your party and music to fit your style. We have elements like LED dance floors that sync to the beat, and we can even put your logo on it. We create unique moments. - A Lethal Rhythm
