Most of you may have seeing videos all over YouTube or Instagram on the Bride and Groom’s first look. I loved this idea from the moment I started watching them, even back then before our engagement. I have always showed to my husband telling him, that a first look is what I would love to do instead of the tradition church look.
When the moment of planning our wedding came, we had told our bridal party and parent’s how the day of the wedding will run. Our route with the limo services that we rented was the following. ( My husband and his best man arrived to the park separately from me and the rest of the bridal party.)
- Pick Up: Bride’s Home
- First Stop: Bartow Pell Mansion Park (First look & Bridal party Photos)
- Second Stop: Church (Where the Ceremony took place)
- Third & Last Stop: Queens Location Farm Museum (Where our reception took place)
With this run down of the wedding day shared with our parents and bridal party, we were bombarded with questions! (But why not at the church? But it has to be the traditional way! I don’t think that is right! No, it has to be on church!) and so on the discussion continued. But! Once I showed them one video of a first look on YouTube, all we heard was (AWEE!)
Knowing my husband, knowing he doesn’t like to show his feelings, I wanted something small, different, nontraditional, private and special. So the first look idea was a great for us!
Hope you all love this wedding edition post, and if you have any questions or anything else you want me to share from our special day, please let me know!
