I think we will be “first glancing” it. We really want to start socializing and enjoying our reception time right after the ceremony. So…it makes sense to take all the photos before the ceremony. Not only will we get to have that beautiful by ourselves for a bit, we also get to relax and enjoy the time with our mostly out-of-town guests after the ceremony, which we find to be the most important thing to us.
I’m not a traditionalist but I was definitely holding tight to the idea of not seeing G. before the ceremony. But the more I thought about about missing out of visiting time with friends and getting to eat the fab cocktail hour I got all worked up. I don’t want to have to rush the pictures so we can get our par-tay on. After reading a few blogs, this one solidified my belief that we’re doing the right thing for us.
So after much mulling over seeing each other before the ceremony we decided to do a “first glance”! G. has already started of thinking of fun ways we can make use of the plantation-style house we’ll have use of that day. I think I am looking forward to those precious moments together right before we exchange our vows the most. Dancing and eating cake are a close second.
