(Wedding Recap) First Look!

Mike & I knew we wanted to see each other before the wedding ceremony.  The Bedeken, a veiling ceremony part of Jewish tradition, requires the groom to place the veil over the bride (post with pictures forthcoming).  This means you see each other pre-nuptials, anyways.  We took advantage of this and also did our bridal party photos beforehand as well.

But first, we had to see each other.
And the very first time Mike laid eyes on me in my pretty white dress & I saw him in his dapper tux, was a surreal, moving moment. I knew I just had to walk down this staircase the first time I saw it on our tour.  We joked for months about me falling down it, with my four inch heels.  I owned that thing.  No problem.

Almost there...
Still waiting to see me...
Doesn't the excitement just slay you?

Aerial view

And supreme happiness/excitement/everything!

I absolutely love these first look pictures.  This moment is one that never fails to cheer me up when I'm down. I remember it so fondly.  I waited so long for Mike to see my dress, see me in that dress, and everything to come together.  Seeing him all spruced up and in a tux? Amazing.  
and here. we. go!

  4. Aw, you guys are so sweet! I'm a new follower. I saw your cabbage rose, too, so I have to check that out.

  5. And this is why I think people are CRAZY for NOT wanting to do a first look. I just think having those few moments to yourselves is absolutely amazing.
