Who Needs Tradition? Rochester NY Wedding Photography

When you think of weddings, your first thoughts probably go to a father walking a bride down the aisle, to greet her groom who is seeing her for the first time, while bridesmaids, groomsmen and guests look on adoringly. It's tradition, right?

Traditions are a beautiful thing, I love all of the ritual a wedding brings. But I also love it when a couple decides to shake things up and throw traditions aside too.

A wedding day doesn't have to stick to a script, allowing couples to add their own unique touches to a day that's solely meant for them.

Here's a few favorites as well fun ideas that we've had the pleasure of capturing:

When your son gets the honor of walking you down the aisle. It's a special treat for him and a treasured moment for years to come.

Or when you and your spouse to be decide to walk each other down the aisle - as equals and partners.

Rather than spend money on flowers that have no meaning, create your beautiful bouquet out of pages of your favorite love story. Then go a step further and give your bridesmaids beautiful, oversized paper roses. It's a personal, meaningful touch of uniqueness.

Can you tell that the Groom here has a Best Woman? Or that the Bride has a Man of Honor? Yep, anything goes in the bridal party too. From colors to styles to who stands up next to you.

Who says a bride has to wear all white? Or for that matter, that someone has to wear a tux? Colorful and bright, these brides were beautiful and full of love.

No matter what, whether you break tradition or not, your day will be special and unique. Because there's no other couple just like you.
