landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

These photos are exactly why I encourage all brides-to-be (and grooms) to do a first look. I know, I know, it’s breaking tradition – but not only do you get wonderful bride/groom reactions, but you get some absolute must-happen time alone with your groom on your wedding day.

I personally cannot wait for my first look with the Pilot. I hope he shoots some shocking looks my way!

  1. Agreed. I am so excited for this moment. Hopefully it is as beautiful on camera as these!

  2. I remember his look when we met outside… I am glad I did it before the ceremony. Everyone has their own way but I definitely liked the hug and kiss before! 🙂

    Our first look was the best. He tried to turn around too early he was so excited to see me. I also then thought he was hot and sweaty so I tried to loosen his collar and popped his button! It was such an honest awesome moment.

  4. Aw, nothing compares to a first look expression–I love the love in these photos 🙂
