Our First Touch

9:00 AM

Hi guys! Last time, I showed you guys the details of our wedding and today I am really excited to share our “first touch” pictures with you. During the wedding planning process, I went back and forth between wanting a first look but also wanting Joe to see me for the first time that day when I was walking down the aisle.

I addressed what I wanted with our photographers (Ally and Bobby) and they suggested a “first touch”! It would be a moment where I could speak with and touch Joe right before our ceremony. They suggested having us back-to-back so that he wouldn’t see me in my dress and I absolutely LOVED the idea! It was the perfect moment for Joe to pray over us before we would get married and I would be able to speak with him. We also decided to exchange letters and presents during this time and it was definitely one of the best moments of the day!

Ally snapped some shots of me walking to go meet Joe for our first touch!

I don't know if you can tell in this picture but I am just so excited to see and talk to Joe and get married to him!

Walking up to meet Joe

I hadn't seen Joe all day so I was so excited to go up and give him a big hug!

Joe managed to write such a well-written, touching, humorous, thoughtful, and loving letter to me and I experienced such a wide range of emotions while reading it! 

Here's Joe rocking the sunglasses I got him for our honeymoon! 

Here I am tearing up at Joe's letter, don't you just love the view of the mountains in the background?!

We ended our first touch with a prayer and zoomed on our way to our ceremony! 

If you are planning a wedding will you be doing a first touch / first look? Did you do a first touch / look? Stay in tune for the next wedding post!
