The First Look,  Can it make for a better wedding day?

 

The decision to see the bride before the ceremony has become  a popular trend in recent years and for good reason.  I would never challenge anyone's desire to wait until they are at the wedding altar to see the bride in her wedding dress.  That is completely up to the couple.  However, I will point out that the tradition comes from the days of arranged marriages and is not based on any Bible text that I know of.  Sure, not everyone sees each other before the ceremony, but many do and it provides an opportunity for some wonderful dynamics in photos and a wonderful way to enjoy the wedding day.  I could write pages and pages of the experiences I have had with couples, but I will let theses wedding images do the talking. 

 

The groom is not the only one that cries.  This was in St Louis.

It is cool to find a good place to meet.  This was in a vineyard in Stillwater.

 

Cresent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

On the campus of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

At Mayfair Church of Christ in Oklahoma City.

 

The first look is always an exciting experience for the Bride and Groom and for the photographer.   Since the couple has now seen each other, the wedding party and the family photos can be completed before the ceremony begins which means that after the ceremony the couple can go straight to their reception to greet their guests.
