Now that you're engaged, it's time to start going to Wedding Fairs. There's so much to see, so much to do, so much to PLAN! Go to a BIG one, I really encourage you to go to at least one. The Twin Cities Wedding Association has a few coming up in the next few months.
But in all honesty, those BIG ones can get overwhelming. Row after row of vendors, hawking everything from wedding dresses, cakes, venues, and yes, photographers.
This is why I do smaller Wedding Fairs and Expos. They tend to be a more relaxing experience. There's just a handful of each category, and they are generally handpicked to be in these Fairs. They've been approved by the venue, and usually the vendors that are there all know and work splendidly together.
Let me tell you where Memories in Time Photography is going to be. Come and see me, take advantage of my Wedding Fair Special ($2599 for 10 hours of photography with 2 professional photographers, and an engagement session!), and when you mention that you either are on my e-mail list, or read this post, I will add something extra to your wedding collection.

~February 27th: The Stillwater Wedding Experience! When it comes to small towns, Stillwater is one of the most magical and romantic places in Minnesota. This new Wedding Fair is being hosted at the stunning venue of The Loft at Studio J - 214 Main Street South, in Stillwater from noon to 5PM. Tickets are $10 at the door, or $5 if you bring food or clothing to donate for Valley Outreach. But wait! I have 5 pairs to give away. Send me an e-mail at Cara@memoriesintimemn.com if you're interested in getting a pair.
~February 28th: The Great Wedding Get Together at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska. This is my homeshow. The joke is take 2 lefts out of the gate, and you'll come to my house. I do live that close to "The Arb". It's my outdoor photography studio, it's where I spend a lot of time, and believe me, you will love this place. This is a wonderful event to help you plan your special day. Taste cake, indulge in wine, and if it's not too cold, walk the grounds. This event is free with gate admission, but once again, send me an e-mail, I can get 5 couples is for free.
Stop in and see me. Like I said earlier, mention you read this post or you get my e-mails and when you hire Memories in Time for your wedding photography, I'm going to give you something extra to help you remember the day!
