This Saturday I had a wedding – no shocker, I have one every Saturday until the end of time (okay, slight exaggeration but you get the picture). The wedding on Saturday was a little bit different than all the other ones I’ve done because instead of showing up when the bride was getting ready and then heading to the ceremony, Erica and I showed up when the bride was getting ready and then headed to do formal photos!
This meant that we got to do a first look with the bride and groom. Now, this is something that is honestly done regularly in a lot of cities, and in other areas of the country, but I haven’t had the opportunity to experience it yet, so this was definitely a treat for me, and you can see in this little action sequence how fun it was for the bride and groom!
This was seriously tons of fun for me and seems like it was fun for the couple as well! Honestly it was very fortunate that she had this planned because just when she was ready to walk down the aisle (which was out in the open) it started pouring, and not just raining, but BUCKETS of rain fell down on everybody. The wedding got relocated into the barn and before you know it, the couple was married!
The rest of the night was a blur of dancing and drinks (pudding shots anyone?) and lots of laughter! Erica and I both had an absolutely blast and we could definitely see not only the love the couple had for each other, but also the love that all their family and friends had for them as well – one even came from Alaska for the ceremony!
Hailey and Eric, congratulations on your beautiful wedding day and on finding the perfect puzzle piece to fit into your life – you both truly are fun, amazing people and we were honored to be there!
