My groom was terribly sick the morning of our wedding and no one told me. We did our scheduled first look and after our sweet little moment I stepped back and my face went to horror. I could see it all over him. He looked ghostly white and weak. After I realized his face wasn’t of nerves and more of nauseasness I was scared. Luckily, Mr. pepped up before the ceremony and got his color back and was feeling more like himself. I felt so awful for him.

BurlapnLace:  This was one thing I was super excited about, but our photographer only got photos of me during our first look and the back of DH’s head.  🙁  She’s an amazing photographer so I really couldn’t believe she missed the look on his face.  I had even told her that’s what I wanted, because we didn’t have a traditional “aisle” so there wouldn’t be the moment during the ceremony when we first saw each other.  Huge bummer 🙁

jenm2be:  I love the emotion, you two look so cute! The second picture is my fave!

BurlapnLace:  I’m worried for our first look too! My FI had this trademark ‘goofy grin’. He’s always smiling, I love it! But, I’m also nervous there will be NO emotion and just him standing there smiling like a crazy person hahaha.

winterwoodlandbride15:  Thank you! It’s really the only photo from our first look that I love. All the others are from weird angles or seem to be mid moment photos.

Aw first looks are the best!  You can get some great photos, but more importantly it’s a time to just catch a few minutes alone with your groom before the craziness begins.  (Well, with a photog hanging over in the corner too, but hopefully discretely…)

BurlapnLace:  DH admitted after the first look that he was confused about what to do so he wasn’t overly expressive – but that’s my man. 🙂

Our first look was one of my favorite moments of the day! Pure, raw, unadultered emotion.  The fourth picture was when he finally got a glimpse of what I looked like head to toe, and he lost it 🙂
