The Decision…

I never thought I’d want to do a first look. I’m one of those wedding goers that loves to watch the groom as he sees his bride at the end of the aisle for the first time. And I absolutely did not want to take away from getting to experience that myself.

BUT… When our own wedding planning began, I started imagining dreaming of just the two of us getting to have a moment together before the wedding. I started thinking about what the whole day is about… the two of us, and the commitment we were making, but how hard it would be to get to have an intimate moment just “us”. As the details of our day started to come together, we realized how quickly the day would fly by and the time spent with our guests would be cut short if we were to save all of our pictures …

The dress. The beautiful gown the bride will be wearing the first time she see’s her groom. The gorgeous options of silk, taffeta, lace, tulle, etc. that little girls dream of dressing up in one day. It’s an important detail to the wedding day and I personally think a special rite of passage getting to try on all the gowns and step into that bridal role. And I’ve been wanting to share my personal experience and a few tips, especially because we gave ourselves a unique situation by choosing to plan our wedding in just about 15 weeks! Ah! So if you’re worried about getting your dress in time, I hope some of my tips at the end will have you covered. But First…

The First Gowns…

{Video Linked Below!}

I’m feeling incredibly sentimental as I reflect over this past year! It has been the absolute best, and a very BIG year with some of of my greatest life adventures: Getting engaged in the beginning of 2018, planning our wedding in under 4 months, getting married, and now buying our first home together! I thought I’d share a little behind the scenes of this newest adventure of our new home…

The Frustration I’ve never shared out loud Before…

Something I haven’t ever shared before is the fact that my determined husband started looking for homes before we were even engaged.
