Wedding: First Look

7 Sep

In my wedding traditions you should skip post, I mentioned we were seeing each other before the ceremony to do a first look at take pictures to save time.

Let me just say: doing the pictures beforehand… BEST DECISION EVER.

You need to do this, if you’re having a reception that’s immediately following the ceremony at the same venue and are limited on time. I can’t even fathom trying to fit pictures in if I had not done this. The LAST thing I wanted to do after the ceremony was take more pictures. I just wanted to party!!! I could see doing them after if I had a chunk of time between the ceremony and reception, but other than that no way!!! It was awesome and it didn’t make anything less special. It was great to have a couple of minutes with Austin to be with each other before craziness ensued.

The reason we look like we’re hysterically laughing is because right before I was set to come out, Austin was standing facing the water and my Dad, not realizing this was supposed to be like this special moment, came out and started asking Austin about the weather or something. It was hilarious.

I think this last one is my FAVORITE picture of the day….

 

Oh man, I could look at these photos for hours. And I’m sure you’re bored…..IMG_7385e

But seriously, if you got to this website because you Googled first look….DO IT!!!! Don’t think it’s going to make your walk down the isle less special because there’s no way that event could be “not” special. Honestly I was so freaking nervous walking down the isle I don’t even remember it. I do remember the first look. It made it so much more relaxed afterwards.

    I absolutely love your photos! The one of the bridal party on the rocks is so glamorous.

    You two look so happy. It’s funny because first looks seem to always go one of two ways: laughing or crying. 🙂
