Wedding Day: First Look

I seriously think that I am the worst blogger in regards to recapping my wedding...but they bring up lots of memories of love, laughter, and celebration. So I love continuing! And really, why not continue only two years later?!? I of the most important moments of our special day was our first look.

Our wedding didn't involve too many quiet moments. Looking back I realize how truly significant our first look was. It turned out to be one of the most magical moments of our lives. As brides, we spend so much time planning our weddings. It is very easy for us to picture our wedding day and generally know what to expect. But I truly would have never anticipated the look on Kevin's face when he saw me in my wedding dress for the first time. 

If you are planning your wedding day, I highly encourage a first look. You spend the day enjoying time with your friends and family that I think despite being a very traditional girl, it is good to separate yourselves a bit. There is an energy that is so short but significant when you do.

The way he looks at you will plaster the silliest smile on your face. You will be bursting with love and passion for the person you are about to marry. It is exciting and calming at the same time. This will give you perspective.

It is truly magical.


What is everyone else's thoughts on a first look?


  1. Such great photos! I think it's a wonderful idea to have that first look. It's a little more private and intimate. Plus, it's something you'll always remember.

  2. I thought about a first look but I more so enjoyed the pictures people took of Keith as I made my way down the aisle. Those were more so classic!

  3. We did a first look as well! It was so special to us and after that moment, we weren't as nervous. :-) We were also able to take a lot of our pictures while we still looked "fresh" which was nice. I love your first look pics. They are so sweet.

  4. Your dress was gorgeous!! We did not do a first look. We took pictures before but there was a door between us. I can't really tell you why we decided to wait. I think maybe it was John's idea. He was so emotional as I walked down the aisle. He cried and I didn't. His dad also cried. It was very sweet.

  5. So sweet, love! You got a good man :) I don't know what I'll do for my wedding, but you can bet that I'll be crying in the first look pictures :P


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
