{Awesome Life} The First Look

Okay, this is going to be a short one (because of all the photo editing going on this week!), but I just had to share…

I got to sneak in a few minutes of Pinterest this evening (if you don’t know about Pinterest yet, definitely contact me via the contact form and I will send you an invitation. It’s necessary for wedding planning!!), when I came across this amazing little story hidden in a stream of comments. The commentor was Dianne Beall and she was discussing this pin about the first look. She got so many responses to her tidbit of a comment that she shared her first look story. It’s amazingly precious. (And she did a first look 34 years ago. That had to take some guts back then before first looks were as popular as they are today!!) I wanted to share. She said:

Thanks, everyone, for the nice comments. As I said, walking down the aisle towards my future husband (34 years ago next week!) was magical. The church was decorated, the organist had finished her final rehearsal, and he stood at the altar and watched me walk slowly down a very long aisle towards him. We were totally alone and shared a very private and beautiful several moments, totally absorbed in each other, soaking in the tenderness of the day and not pre-occupied with family, guests, photographers, florists, coordinators, etc. We were the only 2 people in the entire world during those moments. It was a beautiful, private way to start a marriage and life together. We gave each other our gifts and my husband walked around me and absorbed me in my beautiful dress (with the 13 ft. veil!!). We shared a kiss or two and then the next time I looked into his eyes was when I walked down the aisle on the arm of my beloved father. Priceless!!

Doesn’t that just touch your heart!? I wish I could do it again and have a first look so Nathan and I could have shared a moment like that.

And if you’re wanting to read the article linked in the pin, you can read it here.

In a few short days we’ll be posting Lauren and Keishaun’s wedding! Hooray!┬áSo check back soon!

What an honor to be “featured” in your blog! Yes, it was adventuresome to have a first look way back in 1978…but I would not have traded those few moments for anything in the world. It was probably one of the few moments during our entire wedding weekend that our focus was solely on each other…without any distractions whatsoever. Now, as the mother of three beautiful daughters, I hope that at least one of them will choose to share a “first look” moment on their wedding day!
Thanks again for sharing my love story!
