Carson and Andrew Kitzmiller react to their reception space on their wedding day.

When you hire an event designer or wedding planner, you might find yourself handing over control of creative vision for your big day. That’s a good thing! These are the pros, after all; you chose these vendors for their keen aesthetic eye and attention to detail … not to mention the help with décor setup. The result? You might not see your ceremony or reception space until your wedding is well underway. Take advantage of this opportunity for surprise by having your photographer capture your reaction to seeing your wedding vision come to life, as these couples did.
