The Benefits of Having an Unplugged Wedding

The Benefits of Having an Unplugged Wedding

Pro Tip: The Benefits of Having an Unplugged Wedding. Technology is a constant presence in our lives. If you’re like me, your phone is a lifeline you bring with you everywhere. It connects us to those near and far (and to lots of cute pics on Instagram)! But technology can also disrupt our special moments, and weddings are no exception. If you’re hoping for a more intimate gathering that’s free of distractions, an unplugged wedding may be for you.


What is an Unplugged Wedding?

An unplugged wedding involves simply asking your guests to turn off their phones, cameras, and any other tech devices they might have so they can enjoy their time spent with you. This could be for the whole day, or just for the ceremony portion of your wedding. It’s up to you! Here are some reasons why an unplugged wedding might be the perfect way to plug back in.

1. Limited Distractions

From the ringing of cell phones to the flashing of cameras, your guests’ technology can take away from your big day. Having an unplugged wedding means your family and friends will be more engaged and ready to interact with you and others. There will be more time to create heartfelt memories with the ones you love!

2. To Share (or Not to Share)

We’ve all seen a photo of ourselves posted on Instagram or Facebook that might not be the most flattering. When all of your guests have their own phones and cameras in hand, it can be difficult to control which pictures of you are shared. With an unplugged wedding, you can pick and choose the photos you feel best in to share with friends and family!

3. Get the Best Shots

The job of the photographer is to catch you at your best. While they mean well, enthusiastic guests may move in for a picture-perfect moment, blocking your photographer’s shot. The beauty of an unplugged wedding is that this struggle is eliminated! You get the best pictures possible, and your guests get to enjoy their time without having to worry about taking photos!

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
