CHAPEL – Either by choice or as needed if the weather doesn’t cooperate. All yours after 1PM!
The carriage is such a sweet part of the experience. The carriage will pick up the bride and her father (or the person giving her away) giving the two of them precious moments alone where he can impart his final words of wisdom before going down the aisle. The clip-clop of the horses signal the guests the bride is arriving and all eyes are on them. A tissue alert should be issued! Then after the “I DO’s” are said the carriage picks up the newly wed couple for a short, private ride through the resort where they can focus on each other and relish in the moment before going back to a busy schedule of events and all of their the well-wishing guests. It’s a true fairytale. This time away from the ceremony site also allows time for guests that will not be in photos to head to the reception which makes for a nice transition from ceremony to reception.
