If you want to see each other before your ceremony and you don't want the sometimes-cringe-y first look cliche of one person walking up and fake-surprising the other with a tap on the shoulder, let's work together to make a unique first meeting that represents how you want this part of your day to go. Some things I've worked with couples to do that made their first meeting exactly what they wanted included some of the following situations:
At this gorgeous Arts Ballroom wedding in Philadelphia, the bride and groom did not want to see each other before the wedding - but they wanted to feel each other and pray together. We opened a door partway and the groom reached backwards outside to find his future wife. They held hands without looking at each other and it was one of the most charming, meaningful moments I’ve ever seen take place before a wedding ceremony.
If you want to figure out the best way to see each other before the ceremony, let me know! I'd love to talk to you about your plants to make sure we craft this moment JUST how you want it. It's a super special time on the wedding day, and it should go exactly how you want it to!
