I'm finally getting around to sharing some of our wedding photos with all of you and it just makes my heart go pitter patter to look back over them! It may have been almost 9 months ago, but these memories are still fresh in my mind.
I always planned to not see Andrew until the moment the church doors opened. There was just something magical about that to me, but slowly, as we planned, I realized that wasn't the best option for us. We were both ready to see each other and wanted to spend a little quality time alone before the ceremony, so we had a first look and I haven't regretted it a second since. My grandmother thought it was just the most absurd idea, to see the groom before the ceremony, but I just smiled and knew it was perfect for us.
Our first look was the best moment--sweet and simple and private. All I wanted was to just hold his hand, check him out in his suit, kiss him, tell him how much I loved him and how ready I was to be his wife. We both cried and I tried hard not to ruin my makeup. Those brief, precious moments will always be etched into my mind...the last moments of our time as an engaged couple, before we became the Walkers.

I look back at these and can still feel that same giddiness I felt that day--nerves and excitement and anticipation all rolled into one. Seeing my groom for the first time was one of my favorite moments of the whole weekend, so I'm so thankful we got these shots! I know I'll love these for years to come. Xoxo
