Randy and I had originally scheduled our bridals for a Saturday afternoon/evening. Well, just a few days before Saturday, we looked at the weather forecast. Pouring. Rain.
I did NOT want to have my bridals in the rain! I knew that on my actual wedding day I wouldn’t be able to control the weather, but I wanted some pictures in the sun! So we did a last minute change (huge thank you to our AMAZING photographer for making it work) and took our pictures on a Thursday instead. Can I just say, it was an amazing decision. The weather was PERFECT and I could not be happier with how it went.
Randy and I drove down separately so he wouldn’t see me at all before hand. My mom met us in Salt Lake and I got into my dress, and fixed my hair after putting on the veil. We took a little longer than we thought to get everything just perfect, and I hear Randy was going absolutely insane outside, waiting. I had been teasing him for weeks about my dress, and he was just dying to see what was true and what wasn’t! He was a really good sport about it all haha.
I thought I was going to pass out. I wasn’t told anything other than to not turn around where I was standing. However, it took Maddy quite a bit of time. Every time somebody walked up behind me, I thought it was her. It was brutal! The longer I waited, the more sick I felt. I was so excited that it felt like I was going to vomit.
I walked up behind him and he was seriously shaking he was so nervous. If you can’t tell by my face, I’m stupidly happy.
When he turned around it seriously was the best face I’ve ever seen. He was so excited and happy and just in shock. That’s the way every girl wants to be looked at. Like they just blew him away. It seriously was one of the top 5 best moments of my life
Maddy showed her dress off a lot before we had this bridal session so I had seen other people’s reactions towards the dress. I still was not expecting what I saw. Maddy was absolutely gorgeous. The dress was everything I could have dreamed it would be. I was so happy.
Then we got to wander around, being in love and snapping photos. Which I’ll be posting later.
Basically, our first look was the best look, better than I could ever have imagined. And it’s the best feeling knowing I get to have looks like those for the rest of my life.
Sweetest. Thing. Ever.
