Our first look was pretty anti-climatic. I mean, I already knew what he was wearing, and I’m pretty sure he had a decent idea of what I was wearing. Plus, we had spent most of the morning together, so it wasn’t like we’d been building up the anticipation and missing each other. But, even though it wasn’t really a big deal, it was fun to see each other all dressed up and get to hang out before the wedding started.
We did the first look at the schoolhouse in Wildwood Metropark. He stood by, waiting, and I ran up. I’m pretty sure he saw me before he was supposed to, but he was a good sport about it and still let me show off the dress. I believe I announced that I was a cupcake in my dress, and he agreed. Also, I showed off the shoes because, let’s face it, I am pretty in love with those shoes.
I’m all, “I’m walking like a weird penguin.” And he’s like, “I still love you! But not enough to take my hand out of my pocket.”
Here I am just happy to see him dressed and ready to go. It gave me faith that all the other guys got ready and would be there for pictures!
And making him pay attention to the shoes.
Now that we had seen each other all decked out in our wedding gear, it was time to get some cutesy pictures of the two of us. I was DYING to get some pictures up on the boardwalk, so off we went. I had originally wanted to go up to the covered bridge to do pictures, but after some time in my wedding shoes, I knew that a walk that far would be a bad idea. So, we kept to the front of boardwalk and got some of my favorite pictures of the day. Next up—my favorite pictures!
