- Wedding: September 2013
My fiance and I are likely to have a First look-type thing prior to the ceremony. I originally wanted to take the traditional route and not see eachother until the ceremony, but it is likely certain events that day will make that difficult.
We want photos of our bridal party in Downtown Chicago. Our wedding is on a Saturday, and we are getting married north of the city. Getting to and from the downtown area will likely take 1.5 hours at the least… especially when factoting in the fact that we will be taking a limo. Our reception and ceremony locations are literally minutes apart, and its most ideal for our guests to drive from ceremony to reception, without having to wait hours while we take the time to go downtown. If our guests lived close-by, i would worry less. However, they are all coming from out of town, and are not “City-folk.”
So, now that I have decided that I am alright with a First look, and even looking forward to being slightly less nervous, I wonder if any one else has had experiences with them? One thing that is bothering me about it at this point is that we will likely be doing it in one of our hotel rooms. I suppose this will be more intimate, but will it make for lovely photos?
