Our Wedding: First Look

Wednesday, September 7, 2016


Now onto the first look (and lots of portraits)! Brian and I decided to see each other before our ceremony so that we could take some photos beforehand (and to calm my nerves!). So, our photographer Tim kindly arranged a "first look," where Brian stood with his back to me, and I came down the path to see him. As soon as I peeked from inside the estate and saw my sweet, sweet husband-to-be all dressed up and waiting for me, I became overwhelmed with emotion. I knew he must be nervous (my heart was pounding!), and he looked so sweet and charming that my heart just broke. Then Tim told Brian he could turn around, and we saw each other for the first time, dressed in our wedding attire. It was so romantic and intimate, and the perfect way to start the wedding festivities together.
