Don’t be afraid to make a cool suggestion that is more out of the box or brainstorm even more ideas! I had a couple ask about a hot air ballon ride once (sadly it didn’t work out because it was going to be too windy-super bummer!!). I’ve even had a session in Sarris Candies in their Ice Cream Parlor! Let’s blow the lid off of boring location ideas and get creative.

Always remember, you are never left to figure any of this out on your own. We send out a questionnaire to get a good feel on what you both are really wanting in terms of style choices and overall look and feel you are going for. Keep in mind that there are other factors that you could determine prior to choosing a location that could help this part super simple for you!! Read some of those reasons here.
