When your ceremony is over, the Officiant will depart with marriage license in hand to send it to the County Clerk's Office so the document will be "recorded" and recognized as a legal and binding document.
Post Ceremony Photo Session
Immediately following the couple's departure down the aisle, the couple should take a few moments to be alone and celebrate becoming husband and wife.
The family members of the couple and the Bridal Party will remain in the Ceremony area to allow the photographer to begin the post ceremony photo session.
The Bride and Groom return and have their photos taken LAST allowing the family and Bridal party to move on to the cocktail hour.
The guest and other family members not part of the wedding ceremony will move on to the cocktail hour.
Once the couple returns the Reception festivities will begin.
