I did something similar and found such a photographer by going on Airbnb experiences, finding one of those photo shoot experiences, and messaging them describing the situation. Cost me around $900 in SF if that helps

Thanks! I had been looking into Flytographer for similar reasons, but they don’t do indoor — Airbnb experiences is a great tip!

I used Janet D Photography for our proposal and engagement pictures. You would have to check on their pricing for an elopement, but they were great! They captured the moment and got them back to us in 2 weeks.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal).
My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?

I need some advice. My parents are being very nonchalant about about my wedding next year and my engagement. They weren’t really excited when I told them. I asked a few times why , and it’s usually a lot of negativity (you shouldn’t have a big wedding , don’t spend a lot of money, you’re wedding is a year and months from now i am not thinking about it, just go to Vegas that’s where we did it) I am not sure what’s going on. Should i be concerned ? Has anyone else experienced this?

I just got engaged and I’m totally lost budget wise. I’ve reached out to a handful of venues who all informed me they have an approx 35k minimum.

What were some general costs and what did your wedding end up costing at the end of the day?

Comment where you are cutting back to save money. Here are ours:

- Centerpieces. We are doing a few bigger centerpieces, then small bud vases at the rest of the tables.
- Transportation for guests. Our wedding is in a major city and ubers are easily accessible.
- Flowers. No flowers for men, only the groom is getting a boutonnière. No flowers for parents/grandparents.

Anyone else realize thay they are a generous gift giver throughout the wedding planning process? I have never given less than $150. Also, the amount of $$ given to us has no tie to how close we are to the gift giver or the gift giver’s financial status.

I wouldn’t say anything about it, I just want to have a great weekend, but not sure if it’s weird to do that or a waste of money. Doing a small bach isn’t feasible because we all live across the country.
