Deciding on a first look for your NJ wedding?
So as a newly engaged bride you may be asking yourself right now "So, okay what exactly is a "first look"? Well, this is something that is not only becoming a majorly popular tradition on one's wedding day, but it's also one of my very favorite moments to coordinate. It's that moment where the Groom sees his Bride-to-Be for the very first time before the ceremony even begins. It's a personal moment just between the couple that is very romantic and personal.
In past tradition, the Groom doesn't see the Bride until she is walking down the aisle. There is definitely something to be said about that. But now nj wedding couples are straying from tradition and here are a few reasons why! First, since this before the ceremony and usually takes place at the hotel or residence you are getting ready at, or a photo location you don't have to worry about greeting a bunch of guests. You just get to be excited and look forward to seeing your Groom! This small but important fact usually make for the best pictures because the happiness and emotion are able to show. This is him seeing his bride in her dress for the first & it is usually a pretty big deal. The moment is between only the couple at hand and you're able to really take it in before all the hecticness of your wedding day begins
Then there is the simple fact that after the first look or after the ceremony... it is officially picture time! Some of you may have a very long shot list of photos you want the photographer to get. You may have a very large bridal party, which can take up more camera time as well. First look gives you more time for photos , so you dont feel rushed! Lastly, after all of the hard work you put into planning your one and only NJ wedding day dont' want him to be able to concentrate on you for one moment and enjoy his reaction and compliments? Having an audience can be a little distracting and its nice to share that special moment together. You don't have to worry about rushing right into your vows and will both be more calm going into the actual ceremony itself. After all, the wedding is about you as man & wife and you should be able to enjoy that TOGETHER.
