The Idea of Perfection

The words “perfect wedding” get spoken quite a bit in our industry. Starting with excited whispers from friends and family right after the engagement and lingering up until the wedding day, a bride can feel like she has a lot to live up to to pull off the elusive perfect wedding. Of course, as seasoned wedding photographers, we know that there is no such thing as one perfect wedding that fits all brides.

True Perfection Is One-Of-A-Kind

The perfect wedding, to be true, is unique to each and every couple we serve.

There is no one magic recipe, secret ingredient, or special touch that can simply be applied to every wedding that will achieve the “Perfect Wedding”, no matter the bride or groom. The perfection in the weddings we’ve seen (and we’ve seen some truly spectacular ones) comes only from the authentic and true love the couple chooses to share with their guests.

Love Wins Over Hearts

As wedding photographers, we’ve seen many brides over many years fuss over the details that they think will impress guests, rather than following their own hearts.

The most successful weddings Jax has photographed stem from the brides who are able to throw away all of their preconceived notions of what a wedding is “supposed” to be. Instead, they make space for their dreams and focus on sharing what every guest truly desires to witness: the heart and soul of the couple. The brides who stay true to their intentions often feel the most satisfied with their wedding day!  They make it a Perfect Wedding!

Love is the Answer

To truly achieve a wedding that measures up to perfection, you must choose to follow your heart’s desires above all else. It is only when two people give themselves to one another fully can the perfect love be demonstrated for all to witness.

As the Dalai Lama says “whatever the question, love is the answer”.

This beautiful quote is one of our favorites; we often like to share it with our clients. It can so easily serve as a gentle reminder to follow love’s road anytime a bride feels conflicted about how to design her perfect wedding.

The best weddings mark the beginning of a lifelong journey. They highlight the couple’s commitment to trust, adventure, respect, and laughter as they move into their new lives together. They inspire guests with their authentic, flowing love. The best weddings join two souls in peace and faith as they create a new life together that is all their own. The best weddings demonstrate that love really is the answer.

Find Your Own Perfect Wedding

At Jax, we’re not only expert wedding photographers we also invest in each of our brides’ experiences to guide them toward realizing their dream wedding. We’ve found the weddings that move people the most are the ones created from the heart. There are many decisions to make along the wedding planning journey; set an early intention to make choices that will best reflect the love you have for your partner.

Choose music that speaks to the rhythm of your love, regardless of whether others know the songs. Select reception menus based on the foods you’ve bonded over instead of the latest diet trends. Buy a dress that makes you want to dance, kiss, walk, and play in, even if it’s an unknown vintage piece. Create a wedding party with friends who are more like your own little family; their energy will make all the difference on the big day. Write your own vows and speak from the heart, giving yourself permission to leave out cliches if they just aren’t you.  Make it a Perfect Wedding for YOU.

Embrace The Journey

There are so many ways to make your wedding the perfect wedding for you! Give your family, friends, and guests the privilege of seeing you and your partner at your most genuine and loving selves. It’s the best gift you could ever share

Most importantly, creating a wedding that’s truly yours will allow you to relax, breathe, and enjoy the joyful journey of wedding planning. There’s nothing better than feeling free and true to yourself during one of the most exciting times of your life! Your glow will shine through every detail and enchant your guests, leaving them – and you – with cherished memories for years to come.
