For the First Time: Our First Look

Josh and I knew pretty early on the planning stages that we wanted to do a first look. Josh was unsure of what it was at first but after a little convincing, he agreed. Hands down, it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I LOVED being able to see him before the ceremony and I think it calmed both of our nerves. I cried almost the whole time we did our first look, haha! But let's face it...I cried practically the whole day. I was just so happy, I didn't know what to do but cry happy tears of joy!

Josh and I were able to spend some very sweet time together and really take in each other before the hustle and bustle of the day got started. We got to take our pictures together and we did all of our bridal party pictures which saved us a TON of time after the ceremony. We only had family pictures left to take afterwards so we didn't miss much of our reception at all which was definitely a huge plus.

I don't even have the words to tell you how happy I am that our photographers were able to catch this moment for us and how special it was. Walking down the stairs of the house to my groom as he turned around to see me in my dress for the first time was magical.

First look for the win!
