I'm a follower of Christ, wife, wedding photographer, daughter, sister, aunt, cat mom and I have a slight obsession with Joanna Gaines. 

Together, my husband, business partner + favorite hand to hold, Trevor, and I make Kayce Stork Photography + Films.

I enjoy writing here on our online journal and sharing the knowledge that I've learned over the years in the wedding industry with not only my couples, but anyone who want an extra hand to hold during this amazing, yet busy season of life!

In my career, I've photographed everything from newborns to a past United States President, but my passion and focus has been for the wedding industry for over the past 5 years. I truly love this calling and feel blessed each day!

5 Wedding Ceremony Mistakes Couples Should Avoid | Biloxi Weddings

Education

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes and the ceremony is one of the most unique and memorable moments throughout the day. Naturally, you want it to be as perfect as possible.


To make sure your ceremony goes according to plan, there are a few common mistakes you should be aware of.


1. Failing to Communicate with Guests.

Your wedding ceremony is going to have a start time, so ask your officiant or wedding planner to remind your guests when they should be seated.

It’s also important to ask your guests to turn off their cell phones. The last thing you want is for some crazy ringtone to start playing as you say your vows!


2. Not Communicating with Your Officiant.

All too many couples have a first kiss photo with an officiant in the background. Speak to your officiant ahead of time about moving out of the way during the first kiss, giving your photographer a clear shot of you and your partner if this is important to you.

Another good reason to keep the lines of communication open with your officiant is to make the ceremony more meaningful.


3. Forgetting to Get the Rings Ready.

Before you head down the aisle, make sure your rings are easily accessible and don’t need to be freed from any unnecessary packaging. This also includes removing any price tags.


4. Failing to Do a Mic Check.

If you are planning to use a microphone during your ceremony, make sure it’s checked ahead of time. Technological issues can’t always be avoided but the risk of something going wrong during your ceremony (or before it even starts) can be reduced.


5. Not Looking at Each Other.

When you’re wrapped up in what your officiant is saying, you may forget to look at each other. Make a point of looking at your partner as much as possible during the ceremony. Not only does it make the moment more special, but your photographer can get some romantic shots too.

BONUS TIP – Be sure to turn towards one another during your ceremony 😉
