If I'm being totally honest, I usually don't encourage a short engagement. Not because I'm old fashioned or stubbornly traditional, just because I know how much time and energy and preparation and TIME goes into a wedding.

But this is just in general, a guide line and an average. Hailey and Hunter are not average. Their engagement was blogged on local wedding magazine (a surprise proposal during a styled shoot) and they picked a venue which made their short engagement completely doable, even while their studies, their family and their lives fought for their time.

So, getting married at a church fit Hailey and Hunter's personal values and their wedding planning timeline. 

 

6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM HAILEY + HUNTER:

  1. Having a shot list for family photos is everything.
  2. Getting ready on site makes it easy for everyone to feel connected.
  3. Brunch weddings are better.
  4. If you get married at a church, you'll likely get extra help from the staff.
  5. A baby in a wagon is more than endearing.
  6. Having place card attendants is one way to make guests feel special.
