So the web is full of enviable pictures of grooms being floored by how beautiful their brides are.
Obviously during our first look that’s what I was striving for but honestly the day of I was so anxious, excited, an just wound up that he could have made any face and I would have been happy because we were getting married.
Well I wanted to share this because we got our wedding pictures today and this made me smile… And cry lol.

@SweetHoneyBee: awesome photo! I told FI that I would be happy if he passed out when he saw me (we laughed about it)

The whole “first look” section of our pictures was fabulous but this one made me the happiest.
I’m telling you now a first look is a must. No magic is lost when you walk down the aisle. Doing a first look allowed us both to release a lot of that pent up excitement and nerves. It was such a special and beautiful moment. It was also much needed. After the first look the day went by so fast and we did nothing but take pictures, mingle, laugh, and dance.
The first look gave us a chance to really take it all in together. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Not having done “first look” photos is the only part I regret about our choice to just elope. That one’s awesome. Your husband looks so happy.
This one makes me get all sappy every time I see it.

I have showed my partner reaction photos I like. I told him to practice, LOL. He laughs at me but I am not kidding. I am not spending nearly $5,000 on a photog to have stupid pictures!

@MrsPanda99: Haha, I showed my FI pics, too. I’m torn though. I really want his reaction to be genuine, especially since I think you can pick out phony expressions in photos a mile a way. I guess I just hope his real reaction is crazy similar to the pics, lol. He said he wasn’t going to make me any promises on the matter 😛

@adoc86: I want his reaction to be genuine…if it looks like my inspiration pictures 😛 If he is going to be stoic and just look at me with a blank face than I am going to smack him to get at least some kind of reaction. I don’t think I have to worry though. He’s a huge teddy bear and will probably be crying. @pengoala: has great ones!

@MrsPanda99: Yeah. We got our rings engraved last week and when he saw my message he teared up! I don’t think I’ll have to worry either 🙂

@adoc86: Oh, my lord, you are getting married soon! EEEEEEEEEEEEP!! I’m so excited now and I am not even invited.
We have to get our rings engraved at some point but I have no idea what I’d write. Some writer I am, lol.

@MrsPanda99: I know! A week from today! I can’t even believe it. We had a long engagement though (2.5 yrs) so it seemed like it would never come.
I chose the phrase for his ring from a random country song I heard. I just thought it was perfect as soon as I heard it. He put something in reference to an inside joke in mine. I didn’t want to do just dates or “always” “I love you” etc, though there is nothing wrong with that.
OP! I don’t know if I mentioned how perfect your photo is!! I didn’t mean to hi-jack your thread. I hope my FI looks at me that way during our first look. That is definitely one of the moments I’m most looking forward to 🙂

I showed the Mr. Honeybee several reaction photos and we joked about whether or not he’d cry. He’s a happy, personable guy but when it comes down to moments of sheer joy he actually processes things by being reserved and well I guess stoic.
lol obviously I didn’t want stoney face picures either. However every reaction from him was so genuine and if anything I was more deadfaced then he been I was so dang wound up and full of nervous energy(they kept me locked in the dressing room all day so I couldn’t see how things where come along and it was freaking me out lol)
But I honestly wouldn’t worry about his reaction. Whether he laughs, cries, or makes a silly face it will be him and it will be genuine. The happiness will always shine through.
I mean the picture I posted is a pixelated cellphone screen cap of our photo gallery and even still you can tell his reaction is genuine. I guarantee you both will have AMAZINGLY awesome pictures!
