A ‘first look’ is a fairly new tradition in the wedding day timeline. For years, it was traditionally considered a bad omen for a groom to see his bride before the wedding ceremony. Today, a ‘first look’ between a bride and groom has become quite common and popular. This means a groom first sees his bride in a private moment, away from the wedding day hustle and bustle, instead of when the chapel doors open. Creating time for this moment can give a bride and groom freedom to laugh, cry, and be overwhelmed together before the ceremonies and festivities begin. The initial reaction of the couple seeing each other for the first time is such a joy-filled moment our team captures!
The ‘this is really happening’ moment almost always occurs the second the bride puts on her dress. The feeling is usually felt by not just the brides, but all who see her, too. For this reason, ‘first looks’ are not limited to brides and grooms. Brides will “reveal” their wedding day look to bridesmaids and family too and the reactions we have seen through the years read loud! We hope you enjoy a few of these special moments.
