grooms reaction to seeing his bride for the first time…

Taking a break form wedding flower inspiration for one day…

I love every aspect of a wedding, but there a few moments that always stand out to me… One of these precious moments is when the groom sees his bride for the first time on their special day.

Months and months of planning have gone into each and every detail of their wedding and the bride has spent hours upon hours flipping through magazines, Pinning on Pinterest, meeting with vendors, tasting cake, trying on dresses, picking out flowers… all of this time and work and the wedding day has finally arrived. If you’re anything like me, you were planning your wedding day way before your groom popped the question! I remember watching Disney movies as a young girl and day dreaming of my own prince charming. My best friend and I both met our husbands in high school and a few years before either of us were even engaged we would go to the bookstore, grab all of the wedding magazines, sit down at the coffee shop and flip through them for hours! Crazy, I know – but it was so much fun for us to dream of what our wedding day would be like! Plus being a wedding photographer for 6 years before getting married often helped my internal planning process 🙂

Anyways, with all of this planning and heart felt energy that is spent to make this one day so magical… It’s finally here!!!!

Most couples will spend the morning of their wedding separate and get ready with their wedding party and families. Some are more strict with this than others, but for the most part there a sense of anticipation for that moment of the grooms reaction to seeing his bride for the first time!

If you’re going to catch the groom tearing up at any point during the wedding day.. this is it!! When the bride starts to walk down the aisle and everyone turns to face her – it is my favorite moment to turn around and catch a glimpse of the groom. It never fails to be a heartwarming expression!

Here is an emotionally beautiful shot from Mari & Andy’s wedding at Wild Basin Lodge.
