Week two of sharing wedding photos....still so excited over all these shots. I truly feel like I am re-living this wedding.
Last week, I shared our "Getting Ready" shots, and this week, I will be sharing our "First Look + Wedding Party". Here are previous and upcoming blog posts for how I will be showcasing our wedding photos to you all:
Our Wedding | Ceremony
Our Wedding | Cocktail Party + New England Clam Bake Dinner
Our Wedding | Reception
For our wedding day, I wanted the cocktail hour to begin right after our wedding ceremony. This meant we had to do all our wedding photos before the ceremony with the wedding party and close family. Also, this meant Dan would see me before the wedding ceremony. We opted into what is called a "First Look". This is when the bride and groom go off separately together to see each other before the ceremony to get all the nervous-jitters out. For us, it was perfect to get the nervous jitters out AND get photos done, and capturing the moment beforehand.
