I am all for a First Look, but rather than you hearing it from me, I thought you’d rather hear it from past clients who did one!
So today, I have Ashley & Bryan, and their Omni Bedford Springs Wedding. Ashley is sharing her thoughts on First Look. 🙂
Why did you decide to do a First Look?
It was all my husbands idea! I was absolutely against it at first. I wanted the anticipation of seeing each other for the first time walking down the aisle, like in the movies! Little did I know, how perfect the first look would be. It gave us the private time together that couples so desperately need on their wedding day. I loved sharing the intimate moment of seeing each other for the first time alone. It was so perfect and my very favorite part of entire day. It didn’t hurt that I also got that “movie moment” I was longing for when I walked down the aisle, in front of the most special people in our lives. Bryan’s reaction, even after the first look, was priceless! Meaghan captured the moment and I will forever cherish that photo capturing his true emotion.
Are you glad that you did it? Would you recommend other couples do it?
Absolutely. 100%. Everyone reading this, DO IT! You won’t regret it…I promise!
Why did you love it?
I loved the time it gave us together without distractions. The day is so busy and as hosts to the biggest party it leaves you very little time to just enjoy each other. It was so wonderful to have that quite, intimate time together. Also, cocktail hour is hands down my favorite part of any wedding, that and the cake of course. Having the first look allowed for us to do the majority of our photos prior to the reception. It was wonderful! We arrived to the reception shortly after it began and got to enjoy our guests, cocktails and the amazing hors d’oeuvres!
Anything else you would like to add?
Listen to your future husband, sometimes they have great ideas! 😉
Thank you for sharing Ashley!!!!
Happy Wednesday folks!
