Happy Wedding Wednesday!
This week is all about our first look. I really went back and forth on whether or not we should do a first look. I loved both sides to doing and not doing it so-it was a tough decision. Originally J and I were both against it but then I started reading posts from other bloggers about why they did one and how much they loved doing it, we jumped on board and let me tell you guys, best. decision. ever.
Our photographers had John set up to be facing away from where I would be coming from then had me (with the help of the best Maid of Honor in the world) meet him there.
Ready for the picture overload?
If you are on the fence about whether to do or not to do a first look, do it. I was so anxious, excited, and nervous before seeing John and as soon as he turned around and hugged me I felt so at ease. It was a special moment away from the chaos that he and I were able to share with letters for one another and it was a moment I will never forget.
Where do you stand on First Looks?
