Okay, this first look is not quite the traditional bride and groom first look. It was important to Mr. Hedgie and me that we didn’t see eachother until I walked down the aisle. So, what makes this a first look? Well, let me start off by saying I am VERY MUCH a daddy’s girl. Always have been. And I am also the oldest and first child to get married so this was a huge moment for us. My father last saw me when I was all blah at the rehearsal that morning, no make-up, hair dried while I slept, jeans and a robe… you get the idea. So it was a big deal that he not see me until I went from “his daughter” to a bride. Origionally I didn’t want him to see me unti right before the ceremony but since he was officiating as well, that would have been WAY too stressful. And it gave me a chance to calm down emptionally and get some family pictures in. So, here they are! Me and my handsome, emotional daddy!

Thanks! And yeah, he does look young. But my parents were pretty young when they had me. My dad was 22 when I was born. So, in reality, he is pretty young!

I am so glad I am not the only one doing this! It is VERY important to get the first Dad look. I wanted to make my bridal photos into the first look with my parents. It’s awesome to know someone else had this idea, too.
It’s looks amazing and I hope mine is as amazing as yours!
