You want your exit at the end of the night to be memorable-and make for a great shot as you wave goodbye to your family and friends. Here are ideas from Columbus photographers for making a grand exit.

"I've seen a lot of the people have the band or DJ play a song, and everybody stands in a circle and sings together. The couple is in the middle doing a little dance together. It's really cute and makes for a good Kodak moment for us."
–Hillary Ferguson, Hillary Ferguson Photography "I've fallen in love with the paper-lantern send-off. It really offers a unique wedding moment. The couple can hold the lantern, and you get these nice hues of candlelight cresting their faces."
–Garrett Martin, Martin Digital Photography "I had a couple that did balloons that had glow sticks in them and, when they came down the aisle at the end of the night, everyone let off these glow-stick balloons. They were really cool to watch float into the night. It was a pretty awesome moment. I've never seen something like that before."
–Julie Linz, Julie Linz Photography "I would say the ones that really stuck with me were the ones that were personalized and meant a lot to the couple. We had a couple who went directly to Maui for their honeymoon, and they played a Hawaiian song at the very end that everyone danced to … and then afterwards they bowed and took off."
–Hristina Panovska, Aperture Photography "I think, when it comes to grand exits, props are pretty key, whether you're doing sparklers or bubbles. We had a client who did a grand exit from their church, and they had really colorful pinwheels; it was a fun detail that really made the pictures pop. You want something that goes in line with the theme of your wedding."
