I am SO excited to share a sneak peek of our wedding pics with you!! Our fabulous photographer was Rebecca Davidson. She was outstanding – she put everyone at ease and helped us capture one of the most exciting days of our lives.
Originally, we weren’t going to do a first look. I really wanted Mike to see me for the first time coming up the aisle – it just felt more organic and impactful than in some pre-determined location with a videographer and photographer lurking nearby. The full disclosure part is that we changed our schedule. Because of the Cayman heat, we decided that it would be best to take pictures ahead of the ceremony, rather than put our bridesmaids and groomsmen (and ME – HELLO, this is about ME!) through an entire ceremony in the sun and then expect that they not look slightly melted afterwards for pictures.
Because we were going to gather everyone for pictures before the ceremony, Mike and I decided to do the first look, and honestly, I’m so glad we did. It really was a beautiful moment. We got to experience seeing each other inhabit these larger-than-life roles of bride and groom in private. We got a chance to take it in without having to jump right into a ceremony. We had a few quiet moments together before inviting everyone else to participate in our joy. It really was beautiful, and I am so grateful to Rebecca for capturing these initial moments.
