Oh my goodness! I am so excited to finally share our first look pictures with you all. These are truly some of my favorite pictures from our wedding day.
There are so many reasons why I wanted a first look, and I am so grateful that Jeremy was on board with it. He might not have been on board that the beginning, but we finally came to an agreement about how it would free up time after the ceremony for us to mingle (that didn’t end up happening as planned, but oh well!).
So here is our first look:
I’m using my grandmothers hankie. I told you to kept using it all day, and I didn’t lie about that.
Isn’t the view to die for? I will never get sick of looking at these mountains. They are just too gorgeous for words!
And because it rained on our wedding day, we have freaking awesome pictures with an umbrella. Remember…just because it rains on your wedding day, it doesn’t ruin anything. Remember that. Memorize that. Because it’s true. You will get kick ass pictures even if it does rain. And the photographer brought the umbrella, so you don’t even have to have one with you.
This view. You guys. Holy crap! You can see the storm leaving in the lefthand corner. In case you were wondering.
Oh, and can I tell you how amazing our photographers were? They deserve a shoutout real quick.
The guy in the red pants was our 2nd photographer. He is actually fairly famous in Atlanta for photography and I am so happy he was with us. Our photos were so incredible because of him. He got up on top of the fence to get the shots below. He did that….without even thinking twice. I couldn’t believe it it. Jason is the one talking to Jeremy. He is the photographer that we booked and deserves an entire post about his awesomeness (which still might happen). We were truly so lucky with all of our vendors…they were all amazing, but I am especially thankful for our photographers to get these great pictures that we now have for life!
