There is much to be said about the first look these days when it comes to brides on their wedding day.
Some folk thinks it's "bad luck" to see each other before the wedding. Others just want that first moment to be when she comes down the aisle in the church so that everyone can share in the moment. Whatever is your stance is on the subject, that is the beauty of being the bride....it's your day. Your choice.
My oldest daughter, Elizabeth, waited to see Christopher for the first time when she walked down the aisle. I can still see Chris's face when he saw her for the first time. It was precious.
Lydia on the other hand wanted to have a moment with just she and Marcus....just the two of them. With no pressure, no eyes except their own...and it too was precious.
We all thought that Lydia would cry the entire walk down the aisle but instead she beamed the most radiant smile I have ever seen on her. She later told me that she was so glad she had seen Marcus earlier and had that moment....it helped her to relax when she walked through those doors and to just soak up and enjoy every moment.
They did capture it on film.
I absolutely adore it.
Ahhhh....Ain't love grand?
ps. all the gorgeous pics were taken by our photographers, April and Paul.
