I've shared every single aspect of our wedding from the ceremony details to my wonderful wedding showers but today I wanted to share pictures of us. Me and my husband on our wedding day...
Jon and I chose to see each other before our wedding ceremony and I am so glad we did! We chose to see each other beforehand for a couple of reasons. The first is because we wanted to utilize the natural light for pictures (our wedding was at 5:30pm in the wintertime) and also get as many pictures as we could so we could enjoy our cocktail hour with our guests. I did not want Jon's groomsmen to see me before so we waited to take wedding party pictures until after the ceremony. The second and most important reason was this. I wanted the first time that I saw Jon on our wedding day to be a moment shared between us and not our entire wedding. Seeing Jon before walking down the aisle made the butterflies disappear. I was so confident and ready to marry him. I will never forget those precious moments and the look in his eyes when he saw his bride. Our photographer and videographer were the only ones present (although my bridesmaids and parents watched through the windows and I also saw a few hotel guests peeking inside their rooms).
Our photographer positioned us in the beautiful courtyard of our venue and counted to three so we could turn around at the same time...
I love looking at all of the pictures from our wedding but our first look pictures are my favorite. They are so full of love and emotion, you can see the excitement in our faces.
We had decided that we wanted to save our first kiss for the altar and you can see in our wedding video trailer Jon going in for the kill and me shaking my head :-)
He did bargain for a kiss on the cheek
I hated saying goodbye but loved the fact that the next time I saw Jon we would be standing before our friends and family becoming man and wife.
Next week we will be celebrating 6 months of marriage! Time flies when you're in love.
