To look or not to look, that is the question. Some couples have found themselves contemplating the idea of a First Look. A first look is generally when a bride and groom (or bride/bride and groom/groom) chose to forgo the tradition of the two not seeing each other before exchanging vows. The anticipation leading up to this special moment is preceded by the two ideally standing back to back before the big reveal. Some couples opt to exchange gifts or love letters beforehand to enhance the emotional display. The duo then turns to face each other as sparks fly. Many couples (and professionals in the wedding industry) love the idea of a First Look and here we will explain the reasons why.
Set among the tranquility of a private ranch in South Texas, this styled wedding shoot combines the vivid colors of burgundy, navy, pinks, and gold accents to create a warm and moody look for fall. When it comes to capturing the romance of not only a gorgeous bride and groom, but the uniqueness of wild animals, an unconditional love shines through. There is something extraordinary about the love of animals. A love that is pure, deep, and unconditional. A love that is an example of what a bride and groom should base their vows upon. This shoot photographed by Anthony Gauna Photography and coordinated by Graceful Moments Weddings + Events captivates (human) nature in the most beautiful way.
Filled with sumptuous floral, glamour, and opulent elegance, this shoot was inspired by a garden-style themed wedding featuring a palette of rich hues of pink blush, dusty rose, warm ivories, and ornate greenery. When we think of a garden, we think of fairy tales, romance, magical, and whimsical vibes. We wanted to bring that vision to life, and our team of talented vendors perfectly captured the beauty in this styled shoot photographed by Shy Laurel Photography and coordinated by Graceful Moments Weddings + Events.
Ashley and Justin’s three-day affair at Remi's Ridge at Hidden Falls began with a rehearsal dinner taking place on-site at the Treehouse. The bash ran through nightfall where the couple took advantage of the venue’s on-site lodging.
The duo met serendipitously in a Biology course the two took. As it turns out, Justin’s seemingly only purpose in occupying a seat next to Ashley was to fall deeply in love with her as he went on to pursue a career as a prominent attorney (having nothing to do with natural science).
Every wedding reveals a one-of-a-kind story and the marriage of Lacey and John is no different. While the act of online dating can seem pretty daunting for some, this act of courtship did not prove to be amiss; they have a chemistry that is unmatched. The couple’s November nuptials at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort felt like a magical world away.
