the first look wedding moment | bridal musings

Sloan Photographers via Green Wedding Shoes

The sweet anticipation of the first look.

I always wonder what's going through the groom's head, don't you?

I love this groom's expression ~ he looks lost in happy thoughts of his bride. When he turns around, she's even more beautiful than he could ever have imagined. On locking eyes, they both cry.

The first look is such a special moment, whether your groom is standing at the top of the aisle and the music kicks in sounding your arrival or you have an intimate, first look before the ceremony, just you, him and your photographer at a distance. It marks the start of your wedding and your marriage.

Will you be having a 'first look' before the ceremony?
