We decided to do a first look BEFORE the ceremony.
Over the summer prior we had attended a few weddings, and even one since, where the guests were left for hours (yes plural) to just wait around while the wedding party was taking photos.
I get it. Wedding party photos are important. But really, hours?
We did not want that.
And let me just say... At the wedding we went to since ours where that happened...
Mr. M was THAT much more grateful we did ours the way we did...
Ok, off my soapbox! haha.
I distinctively remember holding up the skirt on my wedding dress, plowing through the tall grass, boots on mind you, and walking down the hill to an open field for the first real glance of my hubs to be on our wedding day. He and our photographer had gone down before me and I could see them in the distance as I made my way down.
Literally and figuratively walking towards my future.
And there he was. My Mr. M.
Hello baby! :)
We're not a mushy couple. There were no tears shed. We smiled. We laughed. We hugged.
Again, life was great!!!
