Toadtally Us: First look

Confession: I really wanted at least one or two pics of Mr. Toadstool at least putting on his tie and jacket, you know, to get a little bit of that “groom getting ready” feel. However, as I was putting on my dress, Mr. Toadstool arrived at the venue and my dad and brother informed him his bride was already a nervous wreck (seriously, I was my everyday crazy self, they were just exaggerating), so he hurried to put pn his tie and jacket, not waiting for it to be caught on camera. So no “groom getting ready” photos.

Once my mom and I pulled ourselves together, it was time to see my groom. The concept of “the first look” is not something really grasped around here. The bride and groom see each other without a lot of fuss and then proceed to get pictures—not really a special moment. However, I wanted to have that moment on camera. Hey, the photographer was already there, let’s take advantage of it.

Mr. Toadstool doesn’t really know what to do”¦

I never expected to get emotional on our first look. I knew it’d be more excitement and relief than actual tears, and it was. When I looked at him it just felt like things were falling into place and then we just started laughing and chatting about our mornings, and for a moment I just forgot there were cameras around us—if you check that part of our video, I am actually talking non stop.


Then it was time to pin Mr. Toadstool’s boutonniere


How on earth do you pin this thing?


You don’t know how to do it, let me”¦


Yaay, we pinned it!
