3rd hour

Team Groom will do a group shot (family and male entourage shoot).

Team Bride will finish all beauty shots before the bride will dress up. The bride's entourage should be already dressed before the bride for assistance.

4th hour

Team Bride will shoot group shots (family and female entourage), beauty shots wearing the gown, interviews for the video, photoshoot w/ entourage wearing a dress, and preparations going to the church.

Team Groom should finish portrait shots for 15-30mins and prepares for departure. Groom should be the first one to arrive at the church.

5th hour

Departure, travel and set up at the church location.
