First Look Photos

More and more couples are choosing to break tradition and see each other before they walk down the aisle. Referred to as a “first look,” it is when the to-be-weds see one another in their wedding attire with their photo and video team present to document the moment. Most couples then spend a couple of hours taking photos with their wedding party before heading to the ceremony to say I Do.

While this change of format isn’t for everyone, taking photos before the ceremony is a great idea for a few reasons:

  • Feeling fresh. Taking photos right after you get ready means your hair and makeup will be at their best. (This also applies to your flowers!)
  • Capture the moment. Your photo and video team will ensure this special moment is captured at all angles, with no risk of Uncle Hank’s iPad obstructing the view.
  • Keep calm and marry on. If you’re the anxious type, hanging out and taking photos with the bridal party will help you relax before the ceremony.
  • Gone with the gap. Getting photos out of the way before the ceremony saves your guests the painful wait in between events, and allows you to spend more time visiting with them. This is particularly convenient if both ceremony and reception are being held at the same venue.

Here are some amazing photos of JBW couples sharing their first look!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Chris + Terry

Chris + Terry were such a dream to work with! They were so easygoing throughout the whole planning process and trusted us to give them the wedding they both desired: a celebration with their loved ones full of great food, plenty of wine and nonstop dancing. Above all, they are so in love it makes your heart melt being in a room with them. You can genuinely feel their connection.

The ceremony and reception were held back-to-back at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, making it easy for guests to attend. The evening was full of delicious cuisine, cocktails and cigars, along with some thoughtful toasts. Then the Wedding Crashers band took over and the dance floor was full all night!

Images by Frost was on hand to capture these beautiful images of their day. Enjoy this peek into Chris + Terry’s love story.
