I can vividly remember walking towards Dan with his back facing me, just minutes away from him seeing me for the first time. We had decided on doing a first look when we started talking about how we wanted our wedding day to go. Our ceremony wasn't until 6:30 so we wanted to make sure we would have time to get in all the photos we wanted without feeling rushed or missing out on too much time with our guests. I also loved the idea of having some time with just him before the ceremony. It really calmed any nerves I had and made me even more excited for the ceremony and reception ahead. For our first look and the first few images we took of just us, it was only the two of us and our photographer. I wouldn't trade this time on that day for anything and I couldn't be happier with all the images she captured!
After our ceremony we snuck away from the reception a few times to get a few more images, especially the ones in the vineyard and with the sunset! Being able to sneak away for a few minutes was such a nice break and perfect time to be able to take everything in and have some time with just us (and our photographer too of course).
Come back Monday when I'll be sharing photos from our ceremony.
