So I used to be pretty wholly against this idea. I’m a traditionalist and for a very long time my notion that the groom should see the bride for the first time as she makes her way down the aisle was pretty set in stone. The groom in no way shape or form should see his bride before that sacred moment. But times they are a changin’… and so are my views on this. Mostly, I blame all of the amazing photographers who have documented this in the last year or so. There’s something magical in that very first look. A moment between only two people without all of the eyes of a roomful of guests. A moment that’s yours and yours alone. That moment where the bride just reaches out and touches her groom’s shoulder and he turns around…

It’s magic.
See for yourself…

What do you think?

Hooray! So most of you know my gingered bestie is heading to the altar, but was dragging her feet on preparations… not because they were cold, but really just because that’s how she rolls. But guess what? They nailed down a date! And a venue! And now she’s got a head full of decor ideas that she shoots over to me via Gchat daily.  I love it. I’m so excited! So I just wanted to share. Sigh. Visions of spring neutrals and May flowers abound for this girl’s Friday night nuptials along the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. So excited!

Now I just need to find some kind of organization for the countless number of links she’s sent me pointing out the table decorations from this real wedding, and the bridesmaid dresses from a different one. Her head is all kinds of brilliance with this game, so I can’t wait to get a load of the end result, but I digress. We have time. She’s reading this and starting to panic… aren’t you? SO MUCH TIME. Settle.

But so exciting nonetheless.
