Our Wedding: First Look


There’s no denying, I’m a big fan of weddings. In high school, I would have friends over on Friday nights and we would watch the wedding films of complete strangers. I would cry as if the woman in the white dress was me. We’d start saving inspiration to our Pinterest boards and planning as if the wedding was 6 months away. Then I’d go to sleep dreaming of my future husband and pray I’d meet someone whose love would inspire and move me emotionally like those films.

It’s been nearly 10 years since those wild Friday nights and now I am 4 months married to Matt. Even if my 15 year old wedding Pinterest board didn’t come fully to fruition, the man I married… his character, strength and tenderness far exceeds any person I could have ever dreamed up.

I am in the process of making our wedding album and when you’re lucky like us, it’s a daunting task because your photographer (hi, michele!) sends you entirely too many good ones. As I pull out the favorites, I thought I would share some here too. This day is so special to us and looking through the photos brings me such joy and so much gratitude. First up, our first look!
