A Wedding Weekend at Lone Summit Ranch: What Adding Rehearsal Dinner Coverage Can Look Like

Amy and Austin hosted a full Kansas City wedding weekend for their friends and family, bringing me along to capture every moment! If you've ever wondered what it might look like to add rehearsal dinner coverage to your wedding package with Jill Caren Photo, this is the blog for you!

It was important for Amy and Austin to have moments with their closest people from their intimate rehearsal dinner at Boulevard Brewing documented. The couple reached out a few months before asking if this was something I would be willing to add to their wedding package. Of course, I was excited at the opportunity to spend extra time with these two leading into their best day ever, so I sent them a quote and we made it official! The couple booked me for just 1.5 hours on the evening of their rehearsal dinner which allowed for:

  • Couples Portraits

  • Details of the space

  • Group photos

  • Candid photos

  • A Small Number of Speeches

I love that I was able to share in these moments, allow their loved ones to truly enjoy themselves instead of worrying about taking their own photos, capture the couple's unique rehearsal dinner outfits and details that went into this event, and of course, I loved getting to meet their nearest and dearest before the wedding day. If these moments are of value to you and your partner, consider adding rehearsal dinner coverage to your wedding package with Jill Caren Photo!

Scrolling through this blog can paint the bigger picture of what a full wedding gallery can look like with the addition of adding your rehearsal dinner. I loved every part of this beautiful wedding weekend despite some uncooperative weather. Amy chose to describe their wedding vibe as modern classic meets minimal and I couldn't agree more. They let the property at Lone Summit Ranch speak for itself, playing up its natural beauty and slight rustic elements. The couple had so many fun moments that made up their wedding day too. Like a surprise appearance from Truman the Tiger, a pretzel bar as a late-night snack, and a killer live band that kept the vibes rolling all night. I'm SO excited to share this wedding with the world and cannot wait for it to inspire so many. Congratulations to Amy and Austin, you both hold such a special place in my heart and deserve all the happiness in the world!

Fun Fact: As your trusted wedding photographer, I only book one event per weekend to allow for additional coverage upgrades or additions such as Rehearsal Dinners or Day After Sessions.
I believe in being available to my couples for the entirety of the wedding weekend if they wish. Not only does this business practice give me the physical time, but it allows me to give 100% to my couples! Photographing mulptiple events in a weekend can often divide my attention, take a toll on my physical health, and ultimately take away from my investment that each couple deserves. I'm proud to dedicate and offer this type of all-in service to each of my couples.
