Wedding on a "budget"
May 21, 2012

I photographed a wedding this past weekend in which, during the booking session, the couple insisted that they were on a very strict budget.

And indeed they were. Beyond making certain they got my very lowest price package, it was clear to me on the wedding day itself that all of their other items had been very strictly budgeted.

The Hummer stretch limo was very strictly budgeted.

The professional DJ, complete with laser show and premium lighting, was very strictly budgeted.

The 3-man videography team was very strictly budgeted.

The 2-man deluxe photo booth was very strictly budgeted.

The 70-acre venue was very strictly budgeted.

The full-course dinner for 200 was very strictly budgeted.

The 4-feet high custom decorated bridal cake was very strictly budgeted.

The 3-person wedding coordination team was very strictly budgeted.

Attire and gifts for the 19-person wedding party was very strictly budgeted.

During the event, I gently commented to one of the videographers that the wedding was a little more epic than I was expected, given the couple's insistence that they were on a strict budget. Upon hearing that from me, he just laughed, admitting that he wondered if they had been the only ones talked down on their package with that story.

Very nice couple, by the way. I made certain my assistant and I ate plenty of the grilled fish.
