Ashley Strickland of Ashley Nicole Photography (@ashleynicolephotosatl) talked to us about other reasons why Black brides don’t go for the first look, how it benefits the brides and their vendors, and other first look alternatives to consider.
When you get engaged, you have no idea how much anything costs. You might see vendor breakdowns and average wedding cost articles but they are all a LIE. If you were thinking your 150 person wedding was going to be under $30,000, you are mistaken! We talked to my wedding team, Leneille Moon of Special Event Factory and Courtney Jackson of The Charming Details about realistic wedding budgets.
