Act 1, Scene 1
The bride and groom are getting ready, taking their time to perfect each little detail from head to toe. The bride shares moments with her bridesmaids and the groom shares moments with his groomsmen.
There is an overview of the wedding location, capturing what might be beautiful architecture or even the scenery of the ceremony’s location. The details are shown with grace as we slowly transition our view of the stage.
The spotlight transitions its attention to the bride and her family as they see her in all white for the first time. As they share their moment together, the lights dim.
End of Scene 1
Act 2, Scene 1
The stage is set as the doors open to the ceremony venue with the spotlight set perfectly to capture the star of the show. The bride makes her way down the aisle, stunning, and glowing with happiness she meets the groom. The guests exchange soft smiles, a reflection of the beautiful moment. The “I do’s” are exchanged and the music builds to the perfect moment. The couple comes together and shares a soft kiss.
End of Act 2
Act 3, Scene 1
The music continues as the stage is set for the newest setting. Time of day, detail, and scenery are all brought to the attention as the music builds to make your heart race with anticipation… Then at the perfect moment, the doors to the venue open and the couple makes their grand entrance!
Act 3, Scene 2
The music shifts to create the group performance of dancing. The energy is high, smiles are stretching across the stage and relationships are previewed. Children are dancing, family members are hugging, and grandparents are full of laughter.
Act 3, Scene 3
A quick overview of the cake cutting, toasts, garter toss, and bouquet toss are shown. The lights then dim and two spotlights are put back on the stars. The first spotlight follows the bride as she meets her father on the dance floor. The second follows the groom as him and his mother share a hug. Both lights share the couple sharing a special family moment.
End of Act 3
Act 4, Scene 1
The crowd begins to line up with their sparklers, the music builds again. Sparklers create electric lighting and the bride and groom burst through the doors as they walk down the line of their guest. As they reach the end of the line the groom looks to the bride, brings her in close, dips her down creating the perfect photo moment and kisses his bride.
