Wedding Trends: Old And New

Continued from Page 24

brides want more candid,
less posed portraits. He will
often photograph the bridal
party out of doors if the
weather permits, and some
might be sitting on the
ground or standing in
relaxed postures.
To make his job easier,
Holzman advises brides to
allow enough time for the
photographer to take as
many poses as he feels
necessary. "It's a stressful
day, and it is important to
allow enough time for hair,
makeup, and those sleeves
and backes of wedding
dresses that have a million
button loops," he says.
Holzman likes to catch
brides "sparkling" in their
photos, and with a little
extra advance planning,
Holzman believes that no
bride needs to look
perspired or wilted. "Test
our the headpiece a week or
two before and figure out
where the hairpins should
go," he says.
"We photograph for the
current look. If the photos
look dated ten years from
now, well, that's the way it
should look. We try for a
record of the event. You
look at some of the wedding
photos taken at the turn of
the century in people's
family albums and you
realize how much about our
lives has changed. But the
photos, and the sentiments
that they capture and
record, are still beautiful."
Photographer Gary R.
Miller of Huntington
Woods offers a unique
approach to wedding

portraits. After the hors
d'oeuvres and blessing over
the challah, guests are
treated to a multi-media
presentation of the bride
and groom. Miller begins
months in advance
photographing the couple
in several settings —
horseback riding, playing
tennis, holding hands, etc.
He uses a large screen, two
slide projectors and
contemporafy music for the
presentation. "We try to
capture the love and respect
of the relationship and
precious moments," says
Another important step
in setting the style of the
wedding is the invitation.
"Many people want their
invitation to stand out,
because it sets the tone of
the wedding," says Shelley
Wish Chaness, co-owner of
Best Wishes in West
Chaness notices a trend
toward oversized
invitations. "They are more
contemporary, but very
elegant." Chaness also
points out that the
invitations should be
ordered about three months
before the wedding. "All
guest receive the
invitations six weeks in
advance in the spring and
summer weddings."
Deborah Weisserman, of
Deborah's Invitations in
Southfield, also prints
many contemporary
invitations. "The big trend
is black and silver with lots
of layers.
"It's either real glitzy or
