While the processional celebrates the bride, the recessional pays tribute to the new couple and the glorious possibilities of their future together. It’s easy for the couple to get carried away by the euphoria and joy that inevitably marks the end of a wedding service. Avoid the urge to race down the aisle amidst all that excitement.
I always encourage my brides (and their grooms) to take a moment to pause and acknowledge family and guests, giving them a chance to bask in the moment. Also, choose uplifting, celebratory music and make sure the photographer and videographer are stationed both behind and in front of the newlyweds to capture all angels.
