I wish I had put more thought into "how" I wanted our first look to go down but I enjoyed walking to hubby and surprising him but I suppose it may have been easier not to tap on the shoulder or not have my bouquet but that's how the cookie crumbles, I didn't really think about it! In my timeline I DID want to have an opportunity at a few photos of just myself with Meredith but our timing that day did not allow for it, so I'm glad for my bridals! Our first look did work out though because hubby was able to get to campus first so that I could walk up to him and surprise him. He always mentions that he could hear my dress while I was walking swooshing up to him and that made him even more nervous!
I really love the emotion behind the first look photos though, and I would suggest doing a first look to ANYONE considering it. I also have to say that it did NOT take away from the emotion that our ceremony held for us. I'll touch more on that later, but here's to a happy Tuesday!
