The wedding industry have done a good job of convincing couples that it's all about details. And while details definitely add to the overall feel of the wedding, big-ticket items get a lot more play in your photos. Like backdrops at the alter, and arches for photos. So if you have to choose between really cool details, and a beautiful ceremony backdrop, that ceremony backdrop will get way more airtime in your wedding photos. Depending on the space, there aren’t a whole lot of places your photographer can stand during the ceremony, so a backdrop ends up doing a lot of the work to making your photos interesting.
