In the world of weddings – and more specifically, wedding photography – lighting is everything. If you had any thoughts about your nuptials as a child, you likely thought about your ensemble, color scheme, and where you’d host your event. Details such as lighting aren’t often considered in advance, but they play an important role in the overall concept of your big day. From chandeliers to votives, lighting designs have to work expertly in terms of both form and function. These features must add to the décor of the wedding while also providing adequate light for the guests, photographer, and videographer.
One of our favorite ways to go about adding a little brightness to your ceremony or reception is through the use of lanterns. While some maybe believe this element is strictly appropriate for vintage or rustic weddings, lanterns can come in many shapes and styles. To see ideas on how to include lanterns in your vows, browse the pictures below from real weddings. Click on each photo to get further inspiration!
