#AVeryLongWedding: First Looks

Yes, you read that right. I titled this post "First Looks"... plural. That's because I had two first looks on my wedding day!

Jeremy and I decided that we wanted to see each other before the ceremony so we could get pictures taken to have more time with our guests celebrating. I'll be honest, during the planning process I had all these elaborate ideas for a first look in my head from constant Pinterest browsing (balloons were part of the equation), but in the end, it was simple and it was so incredibly perfect. Our photographer, Jon Sharman (aka best there is), and our videographers, 314 Productions (who are also the best), scoped our this amazing hallway and the pictures turned out perfectly.

I also decided that I wanted to do a special First Look with my Dad and my brother. This was one of the best decisions I've ever made, especially considering these are some of the sweetest moments with my Father and also some of the last I'll ever have.

I realize this is a pretty photo heavy post, I couldn't narrow it down to any fewer!! I love each of these moments so very very much.
