Wedding Wednesday {First Look}

J and I chose to see other before the ceremony and I'm SO glad we did. Not only did it calm my nerves, but it was truly the only 20 minutes we spent together, alone, for the rest of the evening! Our photographer was there to capture it all, and honestly I felt like she wasn't even there for the first few minutes. It was sooo exciting to see him that afternoon, all dressed in our best about to become a MR and MRS!!!

Here are some of my favorite photos of our "First Look"

It looks like I'm going to face plant here- but I was just excited to "sneak" up on him ;) 




He liked the shoes :)



 The old covered bridge could NOT have been any more perfect!!





Hope you didn't mind the picture overload today!! The first look was absolutely one of the best parts of the entire wedding day! Isn't he handsome?!?! If you are a bride-to-be thinking about seeing each other beforehand, I highly recommend it! It was so special! We got the majority of our pictures done before the ceremony so afterward we were able to get to the reception VERY quickly and not leave our guests waiting!

If you're married, did you do a first-look or not? Are you still happy with the decision made?Happy Wednesday all!
