So many moons ago I came across this wedding shot by the ever-fabulous Jessica Claire, and I couldn’t help but love the concept. They used some kind of blanket to make palettes on the ground on which the guests could sit, instead of renting an ungodly number of chairs. Let’s be honest, it can get expensive to rent chairs, especially if you have to get a set for the ceremony AND reception seating. So this would be a great cost-saving option- a picnic style wedding ceremony. The photogs would probably have easier access to all those jaw-dropping shots if everyone’s heads weren’t in the way- I’d say all around this idea is a plus! Casual, simple- of course for a larger wedding it might not work out so well, but in this case I think it’s fabulous!
