I did see one where the bride stood against one wall of a corner and the groom on the other wall of the same corner, and the picture was of the two of them holding hands. Then they both stepped away from the wall and saw full views of each other

(does any of that makes sense?)

Actually, we did the opposite.  My Darling Husband tapped me on the shoulder.  We were outside @ a local park taking my bridal pics so my photog just had me look @ the ocean.  She captured us both turning around and see each other for the first time.  Besides the actual ceremony, it was a very precious moment for us both.

I’ve seen ones where the groom covers his eyes with his hands and the bride tells him to open them

Ours was a little different.  I stood outside of the courtyard in our house and he stood down a few houses in an alley.  She told him it was time and he stepped out and came towards me.  I don’t have a full picture of when he stepped out and started walking though.

I have seen one where they each came out of different doors of the building and saw each other (frontal view) at the same time.

When my friends did theirs, the groom waited near the front of the church and the bride walked down the center isle to him. He ended up meeting her half way, but it was very similar to how he would have first seen her if they waited until the ceremony.

We stood on either side of our Winnebago and then came around the front to see each other. No shoulder tapping 🙂

i have been thinking about this too.  I don’t think I could pull off the shoulder tap without feeling super cheesy.  I think we will do something like Mrs. Prairie Dog.  I like the idea of me walking towards him with both of us seeing each other for the first time. I just don’t feel the need to do it with 100 of our closest friends and family watching.
