The First Look Myth

I have always found it amazing some of the tidbits of information that my wonderful hubby finds. Did you know that the tradition of not seeing your spouse before the ceremony started with arranged marriages. The father of the bride was concerned that if the groom saw the bride before the wedding, he'd run away (gee, thanks dad).

Although we respect a couple's decision to have their first look during the ceremony, we offer first hand experience that sharing your first look prior and alone is so much better. For me, it was that sacred moment when Chris was able to really look at me in my dress and really tell me what he thought not only with words but the look in his eyes It was an opportunity to breathe together and pray together one last time before we joined our lives.

The first look also helps with scheduling your day too. If you are having your formals taken after the ceremony then you are rushed to get to your guests at the reception and you can loose out on your photographer's best work. We invite you take advantage of the opportunity to see one another in an intimate setting with just the two of you before the pictures, ceremony, and the day's events. For most brides and grooms who have opted for their time alone say that out of all the events of the day, that's the one they remember and cherish the most.
